Teaching assistant Fatinah Hossain, 25, groomed and had sex with a 14-year-old student for several months at a school in West Sussex. She was jailed last week.

A source who knew her told The Sun that Hossain, known to friends as Tina, described her pupils to friends as “hormonal and horny teenage boys” who tried to flirt with her.

They said: “You can imagine what kids at school at that age could be like so it seemed like a joke.

“It’s disgusting looking back now knowing what she then did.

“She had a manipulative trait and could also be hot-headed, especially if she felt under attack.

“She seemed sexually naive at times.”

They also dubbed Hossain as someone who quickly becomes “infatuated with and obsessive” over love affairs.

The sexual relationship between teacher and pupil lasted months, and when the boy wanted to end it, Hossain claimed she was pregnant, tried to stop him from telling the police by offering money, and threatened to harm him and his family.

Hossain, who holds a Masters in Global Criminology from the University of Roehampton, worked part-time as a baker at a local supermarket. It was there, during a shift, that police arrested her.

She had at the time been working at the school for 13 months as a study supervisor and cover teacher. But her arrest didn’t stop the harassment. Hossain went on social media, using fake accounts, to threaten the pupil and other children.

After admitting sex crimes and perverting the course of justice, Hossain was jailed for five years and four months at Brighton crown court last week, with His Honourable Judge Jeremy Gold dubbing her crime as “quite a remarkable campaign of harassment”.

He described her offence as “relentless, wide-ranging and malicious”.

Sussex Police’s Detective Constable Leigh 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, who aspired to work with children in mental health and once posted on LinkedIn she believed “adulthood issues are deep-rooted within childhood”, will indefinitely be a Registered Sex Offender.

After she is released from prison, she will be subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years.

An indefinite Restraining Order also prohibits her from any contact with the boy, the initial victim, and several others.
