A YOUNG woman accused of enticing a young girl into sex by posing as a boy apologized when confronted by her victim.
Georgia Bilham, 21, of Alpraham, Cheshire, abused her 19-year-old victim 17 times, a court has learned.
Bilham is said to have reinvented himself under a false identity as George Parry – a Birmingham thug – and carried out a series of attacks between May 2021 and August of the same year.
Bilham reportedly used the Snapchat profile name “George_132X” to fool the teen with a picture of a blonde man wearing sunglasses.
It is alleged that the couple then met and began a sexual relationship.
A jury at Chester Crown Court heard Bilham apologize when the victim confronted her about her true identity.
Bilham responded by saying, “I never intended it to come to this.”
“I’m so sorry for everything.
“It never was me and it shouldn’t have happened.”
Bilham added, “I don’t even dress like a boy, it’s just ruled my life.”
“It was a silly, silly, silly mistake that shouldn’t have happened.
“I know it was wrong of me, but please don’t push it further.”
Prosecutor Anna Pope said the woman consented to the sexual activity with “George” and not Bilham.
Ms Pope said: “The point is that this defendant deceived someone that she was in fact a young man.”
“This other person believed he was a young man.
“And that means, shall we say, that any sexual activity that took place between these two people was based on a false pretense — and therefore did not involve genuine consent.”
“We say Georgia knew that — and that was one of the reasons she never revealed she was a woman.”
Ms Pope added it’s not known if Billham was sexually attracted to the woman or if she “created some kind of buzz by duping her”.
She also said when the victim asked more questions, “she realized that the persona of George Parry was completely fake and was created by the real George, Georgia Bilham.”
The pub landlady now faces eight counts of a penetration attack on a woman aged 13 and over.
She is also accused of nine counts of sexual assault against the same woman.
The process goes on.
