Fatinah Hossain lied that she was pregnant after grooming a 14-year-old boy

A teacher who had sex with a 14-year-old schoolboy and told him she was pregnant has been jailed.

Fatinah Hossain, 25, lied that she was expecting a child after the boy she had groomed shunned her.

She even offered to pay the boy to get him to drop the charges, Brighton Crown Court heard.

After being released on bail last June, Hossain launched a campaign of harassment against the boy and his family in a bid to stop the police probe.

Using fake social media accounts, Hossain tried to manipulate other children with threats made against at least one other youngster to warn them off speaking to officers.

She also threatened the boy and his family using fake names and added she would pay him to ‘drop the charges’, according to Sussex Police.

After being charged and appearing before magistrates in October 2020, Hossain tried to set up a member of the victim’s family by pretending to an underage teenager online.

She set up a string of fake social media accounts using different names – including one pretending to be a 14-year-old girl.

Hossain then sent messages to an adult member of the boy’s family in a bid to try and get him sacked from his job and even made false reports to police to try and get him arrested.

Her “relentless” campaign continued until March this year when police were shown evidence the allegations were false.

Hossain was then charged with perverting the course of justice along with one count of sexual activity with the boy while in a position of trust.

She had been working as a teaching assistant and cover teacher at the school in West Sussex.

Hossain was sent to prison for five years and four months when she appeared at Brighton Crown Court. She will also be registered as a sex offender indefinitely.

Judge Jeremy Gold told Hossain that she had “embarked on quite a remarkable campaign of harassment” that was “relentless, wide-ranging and malicious” following the “persistent nature of penetrative [sexual] activity over time”.

She has also been issued with a restraining order to last indefinitely, banning her from any contact with the teenage boy and several others, as well as stopping her from entering certain areas.







Hossain will be on a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years after she is released from prison.

Detective Constable Leigh Rankin, of Sussex Police, said that Hossain had spun a “web of lies and manipulation”.

DC Rankin added: “This was a prolonged and distressing campaign and we are glad that justice has now been done for the boy and the several other people who became entrapped in Hossain’s web of lies and manipulation.

“Hossain was first arrested in June 2020 following a report that she had groomed and had sex with a 14-year-old boy from a school where she was working as a study supervisor and cover teacher.

“A sexual relationship continued for several months during which she continued to manipulate the boy’s emotions, including claiming that she was pregnant after he had tried to end the relationship.

“Hossain was initially released on bail for further investigation. Following this the victim, his family and friends suffered a prolonged and complex campaign of behaviour against them in an attempt to derail the investigation and avoid justice.”

DC Rankin said Hossain tried to manipulate other children and threatened at least one not to speak to police.

The officer said: “Using fake social media accounts Hossain attempted to manipulate other children, with threats being made against at least one other child should they speak to the police.

“Through fake names she made significant threats of harm to the boy and his family and said she’d pay him to ‘drop the charges’.

“Hossain was charged with offences in October 2020 and was bailed 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 her and an adult family member of the boy.

“She then used these fake accounts in an attempt to have the family member lose his job. She then went on to make multiple false reports to the police from further false accounts in an attempt to get the adult family member arrested.

“Hossain continued to attempt to make false reports to police until March 2021, when evidence was received to show that all the allegations against the family were falsified by her.

“This led to her being further charged and remanded until she was convicted.”
