LONDON (AP) — A British woman who pretended to be a man to have sex with a female friend has been sentenced to eight years in prison for sexual assault.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Gayle Newland went to great lengths to create a male persona, setting up a Facebook account in the name “Kye Fortune.”

The pair spoke by phone over the course of two years and eventually met, with Newland persuading her friend to wear a blindfold.

The deception was discovered when the complainant removed her mask and saw Newland wearing a prosthetic penis.

Newland claimed her accuser always knew she was pretending to be a man, but a jury convicted her of sexual assault.

Passing sentence Thursday, Judge Roger Dutton called Newland’s behavior a callous breach of trust.

  1. This story reads like an episode of the Jerry Springer show-OMG!!!!!!

    Which is why I still say doing stuff the old fashioned way is still the best idea. This FacePage/Twitter, etc. is not the way to meet people when it comes to dating. You could wind up meeting a Rapist or Murderer- you never know these days with all the crazies out here!!!!!!!
