Sheena Boll, 35, has been found guilty of a rather bizarre crime in London. The teacher posed as a sexual abused 14-yer-old student to implicate a colleague of pedophilia. In her underaged persona, Boll told police that she was sexually assaulted by the teacher. The police responded with a full investigation that led them back to the faux 14-year-old victim.
Boll reportedly made up an entire narrative of being a vulnerable 14 year old girl who was pursued by this teacher. Police however found that the teacher had a stellar reputation in working with students. Three months later, they confronted Boll who admitted that she made up the story and was herself a 35-year-old teacher.
Police alleged that Boll has a history of such false allegations against various people and organizations.
After confessing to a malicious communication, Boll was sentenced to 11 weeks prison suspended for two years. Given the seriousness of the charge and what could have happened to the teacher, some might view that as a bit light. However, she was also sentenced to a 12 month supervision order and 200 hours community service and ordered to pay costs and compensation to her victim.
