Barbie denied leave to appeal

2010-05-13 14:19
Bloemfontein - The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Thursday dismissed an application by Cézanne Visser, also known as Advocate Barbie, for leave to appeal.

Visser lodged an application with the SCA in March to appeal against her conviction in North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

It found her guilty of 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 the possession and manufacture of child pornography.

She was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment.

Acting Judge Chris Eksteen refused Visser leave to appeal against his finding on the merits of the case, but granted her bail of R10 000 pending the outcome of her application to the SCA for leave to appeal.

Appeal Court Judges Mohamed Navsa and Belinda van Heerden presided over the SCA application.
