Kevin Guthrie convicted of assaulting a 29-year-old woman who was unwell
Kevin Guthrie is facing jail for three years for assaulting a woman who was unwell after a night out. The incident took place on October 1, 2017, in a Scott Reid’s flat in Glasgow. Since then, the 33-year-old actor has been trying to defend himself.
Kevin Guthrie denied all the allegations and said that he was only ‘helping’ the woman, but was found guilty eventually.
Describing his offence, Sheriff Tom Hughes said, “You had an educational background and worked extremely hard to get a part in acting in acclaimed films. The jury say you were found in a position of trust while you were supposed to be looking after her. The court must show that women can be protected from domestic s—-l offences and those who do should suffer serious consequences.”
“This offence you have been convicted of caused distress and consequences to the young woman involved in this case. You committed this crime in the position of trust. She was unwell and thought her drink had been spiked elsewhere that night.”
When this incident took place, actor Scott Reid went to call NHS 24 in order to assist the woman who was feeling sick. While Reid was gone, Kevin Guthrie was alone in the room with the woman.
Kevin Guthrie took advantage of a woman who was in a vulnerable position
Kevin Guthrie is being jailed because he took advantage of a woman who was not in her senses.
Sherriff Tom Hughes further added, “The other man was urgently getting medical assistance and you were left in the room with her when she was not able to look after herself. Your position stands in direct contrast to the one of your friend Scott Reid whose actions were highly commendable.”
“The jury accepted that you committed these heinous crimes and the only appropriate sentence is imprisonment.”
When the woman in question was asked if she remembers anything from that night, she said, “I remember my top being lifted up.” She further added, “There would be times when Scott would come back in the room and he would pull the covers back on top of me and pull my top down.”
Kevin Guthrie’s upcoming project include Fantastic Beasts- Part 3 which is set to release in 2022.
