Pretoria - Convicted sex crime offender Cézanne Visser, also known as Advocate Barbie, reported to the North Gauteng High Court on Monday to begin her seven year jail sentence.

Carrying a kit bag, turquoise pillow and other bedding, Visser, accompanied by her mother, refused to comment to journalists as she hurried up the steps to Court 2C.

Visser was earlier this year found guilty and sentenced for 11 sex-related charges, including indecently assaulting two teenage girls and soliciting a teenager to commit indecent acts; indecently assaulting two women and benefiting from the indecent assault of a third; defrauding a children's home and possession and manufacturing of child pornography.

Last week the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein dismissed Visser's application for leave to appeal her conviction.
