Porn model jailed for cheating on benefits

Clare Evans wrongly claimed a variety of income support,
housing benefit and council tax handouts over six years

She earned up to £800 (RM3,873) a month delighting fans with provocative poses for saucy websites.
But model Clare Evans also ­supplemented her income by fiddling £62,747 in benefits while pretending she was jobless.
And Wednesday night, the pregnant 32-year-old was starting a 10-month prison sentence in Bristol, UK, for fraudulently claiming the handouts.

Judge Martin Picton told mum-of-two Evans, who has swindled the benefits system before: "This is £62,000 stolen from the community by someone with a previous conviction for benefit fraud. That crime outweighs any sympathy."
"This was a vast sum of money in benefit fraud terms. Ten months is about as merciful as I can be.”
Evans sobbed uncontrollably as she was led to the cells. She had wrongly claimed a variety of income support, housing benefit and council tax handouts over six years."
"Suspicious council officials nabbed her after spotting a sparkling new £40,000 (RM193,623) Audi TT sports car parked on her driveway in Pill, near Bristol.
Evans, who is four months into her ­pregnancy, began claiming benefits ­legitimately in 2001 but failed to notify the authorities when she started working as a model in 2004.
She claimed her friends, family and boyfriend had been paying cash into her account to help her out.
Tabitha Macfarlane, defending, told Bristol crown court Evans has since seen the error of her ways and has pledged to turn over a new leaf by training as a ­children’s nurse.
She said: "From the outset she has been incredibly sorry for what she has done. She is a woman who is trying to better herself considerably from her previous profession."
Evans, who has a son aged 14 and a 15-month-old daughter, last month admitted fiddling her benefits when she appeared at Bristol crown court.
Her previous conviction was in 2008 when she got a community order.
