Honeytrap mugger jailed after luring men back to her flat and robbing them
A honeytrap thief who used sex as bait to rob vulnerable men has been jailed for six years.
Hollie Cheeseman would meet innocent men and lure them back to her flat with the promise of sex.
A court heard how the mum-of-one would undress her victims before her boyfriend Jeremy Long, 41, would burst into the bedroom with a knife and threaten to mutilate them.
The duo would then rob the men of their bank cards, locking them in the flat while Long went to a cash machine.

"Whether or not you keep your baby, the fact that you will give birth as a serving prisoner is a factor I take into account."
