Student Falsifies Rape to Boost Grades; Now Faces 2 Years in Prison

Naima Shereen Mirza, 21, claimed she faced two sexual assaults five months apart by the same individual. Fast forward some time later and she’s wound up in prison, facing a two year sentence.

When she reported the rapes she even named a man from Perth, Scotland. However, police knew that the individual she accused was already in jail at the time the alleged attacks took place.

A police officer who had interviewed her during questioning was quoted as saying: “I had the impression it was very well planned.”

Mirza was then taken to court and found guilty by a jury at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.

She eventually wrote to one of the officers in which she confessed: ‘Nothing happened. I went to the park and made it up. I wanted another year at school to get to Strathclyde University.’

Mirza apparently needed an A in chemistry to get to university but failed to earn the marks necessary to get into Strathclyde University.

Michael O’Grady, the district’s sheriff, was quoted as saying, “It is […] a course of conduct that is selfish, devious and persistent to a truly remarkable degree.”
