Spanish woman, Vanesa Gesto has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after she glued up her own private parts in a bid to frame her ex-boyfriend Ivan Rico for the crime.
Rico had spent days in prison before Gesto’s lies fell apart.
Gesto accused Rico of kidnapping her outside her home and later abandoning her while semi-naked after squeezing the superglue into her private parts.
Meanwhile, investigators presented CCTV footage from a Chinese-run supermarket showing Gesto buying the glue and a ‘kidnap kit’ including knives she used to harm herself.
Additionally, no vehicles except a council bin lorry passed the area she claimed to have been assaulted and tortured while she had claimed she was kidnapped in a black car.
She was convicted of two counts of making up a crime and jailed her for 10 years by a court in the northern Spanish city of Leon.
Gesto was also ordered to pay her ex 25,000 Euros (about £22,250) in compensation.
Rico’s brother, Rafael, who said from day one his sibling was sleeping when the supposed glue attack and kidnap took place, said:
“Our mum spent days crying after he was arrested.
Gesto’s original lawyer, Emilia Esteban cut ties with her former client after it emerged she had tried to frame Rico over the made-up October 2016 crime and said: “I always believed Vanesa and that’s why I defended her. I feel humiliated and deceived.”
