A prostitute from Brighton blackmailed a businessman after he paid her to play a dangerous sex game called “noose dancing”.
The businessman, a married father of one from Brighton, paid £150 to Victoria Jefferies, 27, to dress in a wedding gown and to wear handcuffs.
He tied a noose around her neck and she then balanced precariously on a kitchen stool.
Jefferies later went to the punter’s home and threatened to tell police that he had tried to kill her.
Detectives investigated her claims and concluded that she had lied about the incident and was trying to blackmail the man.
She was jailed by a judge at Inner London Crown Court for two and a half years. She was also found guilty of perverting the course of justice.
