PROSTITUTION RACKET: Bradford woman sentenced for her role

A BRADFORD woman used her sister's bank account to deposit more than £64,000 earned from her involvement in a prostitution racket, a court heard.
Bradford Crown Court was told that Cathryn Byrom used her sister's account for money from managing and running diaries for women working as escorts.
Blonde-haired Byrom, 44, admitted five charges of controlling prostitution for gain and five of transferring criminal property, the proceeds of prostitution. The offences occurred over a four-year period between July 2011 and August 2015.
Byrom, of Storr Hill, Wyke, was sentenced to 14 months imprisonment suspended for two years and ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid community work by Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC.
Judge Durham Hall told her she had been on the cusp of going to prison but guidelines permitted him to suspend the sentence, as there was no element of coercion or trafficking involved. He said had that been the case she would have gone to prison for a long time.
Prosecutor Bashir Ahmed told the court that downloads from a seized phone connected to the defendant's phone. There was a contact list for 90 females, covering areas including Chester, Leeds, Manchester, Bury and Blackburn.
Mr Ahmed said there were text messages in relation to organising prostitution appointments, with times and addresses.
He said the defendant had no declared income in the last six years and had been in receipt of benefits for most of that period.
