A DOMINATRIX who was given a suspended prison sentence for mortgage fraud has been told to pay just over £27,000 or face 13 months in prison.
Mum-of-two Joanne Garner, 35, lied about the nature of her work in order to obtain mortgages and remortgages on various properties.
But a judge was told she had been able to keep up repayments on the accounts.
Between 2002 and 2007 Garner, of Quarmby Road, Quarmby, claimed she was working as a yoga teacher or a self-employed beautician in order to obtain various mortgages.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC was told at her sentence hearing that in fact Garner was running a ''thriving'' S&M parlour.
Garner admitted six charges of fraud and was sentenced to nine months in jail suspended for a year.
Yesterday Garner appeared at Bradford Crown Court for a hearing under the Proceeds of Crime Act and Judge Durham Hall was told that she had realisable assets totalling £27,436.63.
Garner has been given six months to meet the confiscation order or face 13 months in prison.
Judge Durham Hall said he hoped that wouldn't come to pass.
A dominatrix is a woman who takes a dominant role in bondage, discipline and other similar fetish practices.
While the practices are sexual, dominatrices on the whole, do not perform sexual acts on their clients.
Working as a dominatrix is not illegal.
