Gayle Newland who was jailed for posing as a man to dupe a woman into having sex has lodged a second appeal.

The 25-year-old, who was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault in Chester , was jailed for eight years .

Earlier this week she announced her intention to appeal her conviction and she will now appeal the prison sentence.

Newland, from Willaston, near Neston , has lodged the appeal against her sentence with Chester Crown Court, where her trial and jailing took place.

Dubbed the Chester prosthetic penis trial , the court heard how Newland created the alter-ego of Kye Fortune.

She then lured her victim into sex sessions - using a strap-on penis and blindfold - and had sex up to 10 times.

Newland will have her case considered by a single judge at London’s Court of Appeal.

If that finds favour, it will be sent to another hearing in front of three senior judges, who will assess her eight year sentence.

They could decrease or increase it, or keep the punishment the same.

However, those proceedings could become redundant if Newland’s appeal against conviction is successful.
