Pervert gymnast dodges jail after preying on schoolgirls at gymnastics club where he coached
A former gymnast who represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games has been spared jail for sex offences against schoolgirls.
Ryan McKee, 25, knew the girls were 14 when he became involved with them through the gymnastics club where he coached.
He kissed one girl and asked her if she wanted to see indecent images of him and requested that she send pictures to him.
He also kissed the second girl and they exchanged naked pictures with one another when he was 23.
Pub worker McKee, of Barmulloch, Glasgow, denied three charges but was found guilty after a trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
Sheriff Tony Kelly convicted him of engaging in sexual behaviour and communicating indecently with one girl, and lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour with the other.
McKee was ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid work, told not to contact girls under 16 and placed on the sex offenders’ register.
