Mohammed Luqman, 18, threatened to post footage on Facebook of brave victim
A student has been jailed for blackmailing a 14-year-old schoolgirl into handing over family jewellery after threatening to release a video of her being ‘abused’ on Facebook.
The young victim claimed she was targeted for sexual exploitation by Mohammed Luqman, 18, over a period of months.
The Birmingham college student allegedly recorded her being sexually abused and later threatened to release the videos on social media, unless she stole from her family for him.

Luqman was sentenced at Birmingham Youth Court on November 4, where he received six months youth custody for each offence, to run consecutively.
He was also told to pay a £20 surcharge for each victim and ordered to stay away from the two girls for the next five years.
Despite now being aged 18, he was sentenced as a youth as the offences were committed when he was 16.

She said: “It’s been horrible. When my daughter found out that no-one was being charged with any sexual offence, she was crying and screaming.
“My daughter said she would be taken to parks and was then told to get undressed. Yet she felt that police have not really believed her throughout.
