A woman from St John’s Wood who sheltered one of the killers of innocent mother Sabrina Moss has walked free from court after being given a suspended jail sentence today.
Fiona Cullum, 25, of Rowley Way, provided a safe haven for Hassan Hussain, 30, as he and fellow murderer Yassin James, 20, were hunted by police after t Miss Moss was gunned down in Kilburn High Road as she celebrated her 24th birthday in August 2013.
The Old Bailey heard she then lied to officers when quizzed about Hussain after he was arrested over the murder.
Hussain, James and their getaway driver Martell Warren, 23, were jailed for a total of 111 years last year after they were convicted of murder and the attempted murder of Sabrina Gachette who survived the shooting.
Judge Stephen Kramer QC sentenced Cullum to 18 months imprisonment for harbouring Hussain and 24 months for lying to police, but suspended it for two years after highlighting her ‘exceptional’ personal mitigation.
He said: “What you did was serious and hindered the police investigation into the shooting.
“You hid behind a defence that you were so drunk or in drugs you could not recall the days in question and maintained in any event you did not see Hassan Hussain.’

“You have a sad background, drinking alcohol from the age of eight and taking drugs from the age of nine years old.
“[According to the evidence] you were and are a vulnerable woman with more than your fair share of problems used by a dangerous and cruel man.”
Cullum stood trial alongside Reid Daniel, 24, and Matthew Bouzemada, 22, who were both jailed for three years for assisting getaway driver Warren.
Bouzemada was also sentenced to an extra six months for breaching a suspended sentence for drug dealing.
