Hossain was sentenced to five years and four months in prison and will be a registered sex offender indefinitely.

âA sexual relationship continued for several months during which she continued to manipulate the boy’s emotions, including claiming that she was pregnant after he tried to end the relationship.
âHossain was first released on bail for further investigation. As a result, the victim, her family and friends suffered a prolonged and complex campaign of behavior against them in an attempt to derail the investigation and evade justice.
âUsing fake social media accounts, Hossain attempted to manipulate other children, with threats against at least one other child if he spoke to the police. By false names, she made significant threats of harm to the boy and his family and said she was paying him to “drop the charges.”
âHossain was charged with offenses in October 2020 and released on bail by magistrates. She then created a number of fake social media accounts using different names, including that of a 14-year-old girl. Using this particular account, she fabricated messages between herself and an adult member of the boy’s family.
âShe then used these fake accounts in an attempt to cause the family member to lose her job. She then made several fake reports to police from other fake accounts in an attempt to have the adult family member arrested.
âHossain continued to attempt to make false reports to police until March 2021, when evidence was received to show that all allegations against the family had been falsified by her. This led to her being charged again and remanded in custody until her conviction.
“It has been a prolonged and painful campaign and we are happy that justice has been served for the boy and the many others who have found themselves trapped in Hossain’s network of lies and manipulations.”
