Per Sky News, following the horrific injury, the 22-year-old went to a nearby hospital with her boyfriend, Sebastien Abramov, with the pair choosing to leave the severed hand behind, instead of taking it with them. 

However, yesterday the District Court heard this was done with a proper plan to ensure her disability would be permanent - one that didn't quite pan out as police later recovered the hand and it was reattached.

According to Daily Mail reports, investigators later investigated that the couple had already signed with five different insurance companies a year before the incident. 

In addition to this, the court was provided with information that the woman's boyfriend searched on the Internet regarding artificial hands and how they work - with prosecutors explaining that this was further proof that the injury was caused deliberately.

During the trial, Adlesic told the court that she was innocent, saying she would never have cut off her hand deliberately. She said:

But Adlesic has been convicted after found guilty of attempted insurance fraud by a court in the city and was sentenced to two years in prison.

In addition to this, Adlesic's boyfriend was also found guilty and sentenced to three years in prison, while his father - who was also determined to be in on the fraud - received a one-year suspended sentence.
