A mother who was jailed along with her partner for running a brothel in Hounslow has had her sentence cut after winning an appeal.
It means Tasleem Yasin, 47, will be back home for Christmas with her twin four-year-old children as her initial 27-month sentence was reduced to 19 months.
Appeal lawyers argued the sentence was too tough, given the devastating impact the imprisonment is having on her children.
The mother was in charge of the day-to-day running of the Kingsley Road brothel with her common-law husband, Carl Smith, responsible for recruiting prostitutes, staff rotation and supplying cannabis for use, the court heard.
It is thought that between 2015 and 2016 the couple, of Prince Regent Road, made around £70,000.
She was jailed at Isleworth Crown Court in June for conspiracy to keep a brothel and offering to supply cannabis, and possession of the drug, but on Tuesday (November 14) her jail sentence was cut by eight months following an appeal by her lawyers.
"We conclude that justice can properly be done in this case by reducing the sentence," appeal judge, Sir John Royce, told the Court of Appeal, sitting alongside Lord Justice Hickinbottom and Mrs Justice O'Farrell.
Adding: "According to the court's calculation, that may lead to her release at this stage, or in any event, the not far distant future."
Due to time served on remand, Yasin will be freed imminently.
The court heard how Yasin and Smith were caught following police surveillance of the brothel and at another property in Aldridge Close.
Large sums of cash and some cannabis was found during searches of the properties and the couple's home, with financial investigation revealing more than £70,000 of unexplained cash had landed into their accounts.
