British actress Zara Phythian has been jailed for eight years for sexually abusing a girl. Her husband Victor Marke is sentenced to 14 years in prison. The couple were found guilty in Nottingham court last week.
Marke gets a longer prison sentence because according to the judge he was “the driving force behind the abuse”. He was sentenced to four years for abusing a girl and another ten years for abusing the second victim with Phythian, the report said. BBC†
Phytian and her husband abused the girl from 2002, when she was 13. Both denied the charges, but a jury thought otherwise on Monday. The judge told Phythian that she was probably influenced by her husband “from a young age”. She was eighteen years old at the time.
The 38-year-old Phythian is best known for her role in the film Doctor Strange from 2016, in which she starred with Benedict Cumberbatch.
