A HONEYTRAP conwoman, who lured a man to her house before torturing him, has been jailed.
Caprice Buddle, 25, flirted with the victim to get him to her home, before forcing him to drink cleaning fluid during hours of physical, verbal and sexual abuse.

The pair planned the “harrowing ordeal” together before Buddle led the unsuspecting victim to a house in Waterlooville, Hampshire.
After they had carried out the “horrific attack”, the abusers blindfolded the victim, threw him into a van and dumped him on the side of the road.
However, he recognised where he was and ran home to call the police.
Perry admitted the charges of conspiracy to rob, false imprisonment, conspiracy to commit fraud, assault by penetration and causing actual bodily harm on the first day of the trial.
Meanwhile, Buddle denied charges of conspiracy to rob, false imprisonment, conspiracy to commit fraud and possession of a Class A drug, but was later convicted by a jury.
She was jailed for 10 years, while Perry received a 17-year sentence.
A court heard that Buddle acted as a honeytrap to lure the man into the house on May 5, 2019.
Honeytrapping is the use of a false sexual relationship to gain influence over someone.
Detective Constable Emily Drummer, of Hampshire Constabulary, said: “The victim in this case was subjected to a harrowing and traumatic ordeal which lasted over several hours.
“While nothing will ever be able to take that away, I am pleased Perry and Buddle will now face the consequences of their despicable actions and spend a significant amount of time in prison for what they have done.”
DC Drummer also praised the courage of the victim and said his bravery led to the convictions.
She added: “We hope this sentence sends a strong message to the public that we will do all in our power to protect and support victims of abuse, while relentlessly pursuing offenders.”
A police spokeswoman also confirmed that a 38-year-old man from Fareham and a 27 year old man from Winchester had been arrested in connection with the case, but had been released with no further action taken.
