"She looked down and saw her tights were disintegrating and she was aware of an intense burning on her leg."

Molly was rushed to hospital, eventually undergoing plastic surgery for her scars.

Police later found evidence on Emily's phone that she had been researching acid attacks, as well as the maximum sentencing for attackers.

In sentencing Emily Bowen, Sheriff Michael O'Grady QC described the teen's crime as "utterly wicked".

"You researched this topic and should have been aware of the potentially horrendous consequences for any young woman maimed by this," he said.

"You have left a young woman to suffer a terrifying ordeal and she will be both physically and mentally scarred for the rest of her life."

The court heard how Molly continues to have "shooting pains and nerve damage" and psychological problems as a result of the targeted attack.

The court has also imposed a non-harassment order that bans Emily from contacting her victim for five years.
