She used the accounts to send vile messages to herself and claimed that they were ran by Louis Jolly.

During this period of time, Courtney reportedly made 10 separate statements to the police, and  in one of them she said that he sent her a message telling her that she will be stabbed in the chest.

She also asked family members to support her and asked her mother to call the police and report the fake threats. 

Other family members claimed that Louis filmed her walking on the street, harassed her friends and even threw a brick on the window of her grandmother.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Jolly Was arrested 6 times and even spent a cumulative 81 hours in police custody because of the accusations that were made against him by his former girlfriend.

In a statement that the victim released, he said:

At my lowest point I felt like life wasn’t worth living and thought to myself that I’d be better off dead.

Ireland-Ainsworth was caught when Instagram confirmed that the malicious profiles came from her email accounts and IP Addresses.

She was then sentenced to spend 10 months in a young offenders institution along with a 10-year restraining order.

You created an entirely fictional but superficially credible web of poisonous deceit for over five months and had an absolutely shattering effect on the victim.
