Who is Rhian Keys?
Rhian Keys, 37, from South Hampstead, London, ran over the limit on the M48 near Bristol in 2019 and on the A24 in Surrey in the same year.
Bristol Crown Court heard that the second offense put her in breach of a 16-month suspended prison sentence imposed on her on two counts of fraud.
She pleaded guilty to two counts of committing an act intended to pervert the course of justice and was sentenced today.
Judge James Patrick criticized her for having a “record of dishonesty” and for being “an arrogant, dishonest and manipulative woman”.
She pleaded guilty to two counts of performing an act with intent to pervert the course of justice and was sentenced today.
Ramin Pakrooh, a prosecutor, said that at 3:45 p.m. m. on February 16, 2019, Keys’s VW Scirroco was caught going 73mph in a 50mph zone on the M48.
He claimed that her aunt had taken the car without consent, which turned out to be outside the UK, and Keys later argued that it must have been someone else.
Pakrooh said around 1 a.m. m. on 5 November 2019, the same car was found to be reaching speeds of 63mph in a 40mph zone on the A24 in Surrey.
Keys claimed that she was in Turkey, but it was later proven that she was not. She then argued that the car had commercial insurance and that someone else could have used it.
Meanwhile, the defendant had claimed that she had short-term memory loss.
In an interview with the police, she handed over a letter from her GP saying that she had mental health problems and that the interview caused her stress.
She said: ‘I never should have been here. My health is much more important than any traffic violation.
The court heard that her previous suspended sentence was for using a customer’s credit card to buy items, including electrical items, worth £35,000.
Keys, a former professional ballet dancer, had reportedly scammed her friend and client using her credit cards without permission.
The former actress and model had run a health and fitness company called Ballet-fit and appeared in the West End show The Woman In Black.
Between December 2017 and May 2018, the Met Police said Keys bought 24 iPhones worth £25,210.
She also bought £2,763 worth of car insurance, as well as a dog seat for her Dachshund and holidays for her friends in Ibiza, which included Air BnB rooms.
Emma Martin, defending herself, said: ‘She is devastated by her own actions. They relate to a time in her life when she was suffering from Class A drug addiction and extremely poor mental health.
Ms. Martin said her client attributed her “sense of arrogance” at the time to drug abuse, leading her to believe it was just motoring issues.
The court heard that Keys had sought medical treatment for problems and was fit for rehabilitation work.
