A SEA Cadet leader who filmed a 12-year-old boy being sexually abused by another cadet has escaped a prison sentence.

Jerome Gay, from East Linton, was ordered to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work and put under social work supervision for two years at Livingston Sheriff Court. The 18-year-old was also added to the sex offenders’ register for two years.

A jury earlier found Gay, who was 16 at the time of the attack, guilty of “acting in concert with another youth”.
