A woman jailed because she was too scared to give evidence against her alleged attacker is to appeal.

The father of Sarah Holt, 20, said yesterday he was "horrified" when he heard a judge at Chelmsford Crown Court in Essex had sent her to Holloway Prison, north London, for three months, though she is now in an open prison. Mr Holt said she has only just recovered from the scars of the alleged assault by her former boyfriend, Alex Fryatt.
