Kiwi blackmailer failed to get Canadian teen to perform lewd acts


…but he may have managed to do it with others

A Manawatu man has been charged with blackmailing a Canadian teenager he met on the Internet.

The 35 year-old convinced the 16-year-old girl from London, Ontario to send him intimate pictures.

AM980 reporter Jess Brady says he then tried to blackmail the teen into performing lewd acts online.

The girl complained to police and he was eventually tracked down, arrested and charged in Palmerston North District Court.

Two girls in New Zealand have also been identified as targets of the man’s blackmail attempts.

The mark of a true coward.   Let’s hope they throw the book at him.

It is also good to see the international cooperation between law enforcement to ensure that the apparent distance and anonymity afforded by Internet crime is getting less all the time.

    I hope that when this evil excuse for humanity appears in court, some dud judge doesn’t give it name suppression.
