A jilted teen sent vile messages to herself on fake social media accounts in a bid to frame her ex-boyfriend for abuse after he dumped her.

Clarice Crothers, 18, has been jailed for 8 months after telling police her ex-partner was harassing her and her family with threatening messages.

On one occasion she told officers she had received 100 abusive messages in a single day and claimed he told her she was being watched.

But investigations revealed she was trolling herself ‘in an attempt to get revenge’.

Clarice Crothers, aged 18, who has been sentenced to eight months in prison for perverting the course of justice at Warwick Crown Court. See SWNS story SWMDfake. In July 2018, she made seven allegations to police that she and her family had been receiving malicious communications from social media accounts set up by an ex-boyfriend. The messages included threats to harm her and her family, and also implied her home was being watched. On one day alone, she reported she had received over 100 messages.

A Warwickshire teenager went to the police to complain about upsetting malicious messages she said a young man had been sending to her social media account. When it then became clear the person she was blaming was not responsible, Clarice Crothers tried to put the blame onto another young man ??? who was in fact her accomplice. And at Warwick Crown Court, Crothers (18) of Darlow Drive, Stratford, pleaded guilty to two charges of doing acts intended to pervert the course of justice. In what Judge Peter Cooke described as ???a peculiar case,??? the court heard that she and Daniel Hewitt had set up false social media accounts from which they sent ???malicious messages??? to her own social media account in July last year.
