Pregnant woman jailed for lying about boyfriend attack A PREGNANT woman who falsely alleged her boyfriend had attacked her because she believed he was cheating on her was jailed.
Lisa Norman, 24, twice rang police claiming her partner Kevin Hayes had assaulted her.
She even persuaded friend and lodger, mum-of-two Tracey McKeary, 38, to injure her neck and provide a false statement to back up her lies. But when Hayes, who was out on licence, was arrested and remanded in custody, the women admitted the truth. He was not released for six weeks.
Recorder David Turner QC told Norman, of Percy Road, Wallasey, he had no choice to jail her for six months, adding: “It gives me no pleasure at all to impose a sentence of imprisonment on a pregnant woman who will spend Christmas in prison.”
McKeary, of Felicity Grove, Moreton, was given a 12-month community order. THE ECHO
