A woman who duped her female friend into having sex by pretending to be a man for two years will be sentenced today.
Gayle Newland, 25, disguised her appearance and voice as she persuaded the other woman to put on a blindfold when they met up.
Police have released this mugshot of Gayle Newland following the case.
Detective Inspector Clare Coleman from Cheshire police said: “This has been a highly unusual and complex investigation.
To recap, she received 8 years in custody for each of the three counts she was convicted of, to be served concurrently.
Gayle Newland will serve approximately four years before being considered for release.
“She has been extremely upset by what has happened and there is no doubt that there will be a lasting psychological impact on her.
“I would like to thank the victim for her bravery and co-operation throughout the investigation.
