Summary judgment

Woman who used fake penis to trick another woman into having sex is sentenced

A 25-year-old woman from England was sentenced to eight years for sex assault after carrying out a bizarre ruse in which she posed as a man to trick another woman into engaging in sexual intercourse. Gayle Newland was found guilty of sexual assault in September after being accused of meeting another woman on the Internet and persuading her to wear a blindfold when they met for a sexual encounter. Newland had sex with the victim 10 times before the woman eventually pulled off the blindfold during one encounter. To her shock and dismay, the accuser said, Newland was wearing a prosthetic penis. Newland had claimed that her accuser, a 25 year-old woman, was aware all along that Newland was not actually a man and that their relationship was an elaborate role-playing adventure. The court didn’t buy the defense. At Newland’s sentencing, the judge said she is “an intelligent, obsessional, highly manipulative, deceitful, scheming, and thoroughly determined young woman.”
