Scottish actor Kevin Guthrie has been sentenced to a three-year jail term for sexually assaulting a woman.
The 33-year-old Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at an apartment belonging to a fellow actor in Glasgow, Scotland.
According to the BBC, the actor denied the accusations and claimed that he had only been “helping” the woman after she became unwell.
However, Guthrie’s DNA was discovered from the victim’s clothing and he was found guilty following a four-day trial.
His name has now been added to the list of sex offenders in Scotland, indefinitely.
The sheriff of the court, Tom Hughes reportedly told the actor: "The court must show that women can be protected from domestic sexual offences. The offence you have been convicted of caused distress and consequences to the young woman involved in this case."
