Film actress Zara Phythian has been jailed for eight years at Nottingham Crown Court for historic sexual abuse of a girl aged 13 to 15.
Phythian’s husband, Victor Marke, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for abusing the same victim, as well as being rude to the second girl.
After the sentencing, Judge Mark Watson told the couple he believed the initiation of the sexual abuse of the joint victim was premeditated.
The judge told Marke: “I consider you the driving force behind the abuse. You were well aware of the first incident but pretended to be asleep.”
“This could just be a pre-agreed ruse.”
During the sentencing, the judge also said that Phythian’s “deviation” was shaped by Marke’s influence on her at an early age.
