Zara Phythian was recently charged and found guilty of sexual abuse. The victim was a 13-year-old girl when the abuse happened between 2005 and 2008.

Victor Marke, her husband, was also found guilty of the same offenses in addition to indecent assault charges concerning a different underage girl from 2002 to 2003. Marke abused the second victim on at least eight different occasions.

Phythian's prison sentence at Derbyshire's Foston Hall prison is already underway.

Reports are now claiming that Phythian is in isolation, where she is being checked on an hourly basis for her safety.

According to a source close to her family, Phythian is not adjusting well to life in prison, so she had to be isolated for her own good. She will eventually be moved to a single cell.

At the moment, prison guards are checking up on her every hour because "she has been close to a nervous breakdown."

Her father, Andy, has not had an opportunity to see her just yet as he is yet to get his visitor's pass.

"She's been crying down the phone to him and is not in a good way," the source has claimed.

During the trial, the unnamed sexual abuse victim said that the couple was like "Jekyll and Hyde." She went on to say that the couple had said nobody would believe her if she spoke about it anyway.

While making his ruling, Judge Mark Watson told Phythian and her husband that he believed that they planned to start abusing the victim.

The judge noted that, although Phythian had denied being infatuated with Marke, he was sure that her behavior was determined by the influence her had on her from an early age.

Consequently, the judge said that he could not disregard that she was still young when her relationship with her husband began.

Nevertheless, the judge made it clear that this did not excuse her behavior or the choices she made at the time since she was already a success on her own. According to the court, this meant she chose to take part in the abuse.
