Edward Gay in the NZ Herald reports:
Two women who discovered they were sleeping with the same man poured maple syrup in his bed, cooked his shoes in a microwave and threatened to make public explicit photographs he had sent them.
I wonder how long you have to cook shoes for in a microwave until they are done, and what happens to the shoes?
They then blackmailed the man – whose name is suppressed – by threatening to send photographs of his genitals to his workplace, bank and a cafe where his daughter worked unless he paid them $4000 each.
This is where they went wrong. If they had just stuck to the maple syrup and the shoes, then no jury would convict them. But blackmail is not good.
They would have been better with the maple syrup to tie him to the bed first, and then pour the maple syrup over him and the bed. If in a really bad mood, you also then leave a dog or two in the room!
Crown prosecutor Fletcher Pilditch said the offending was premeditated and serious.
He said the pair should be jailed, and proposed a term of between 12 months and two and a half years in prison.
Justice Woodhouse said he gave the women credit for their early guilty pleas.
“I do not consider the harm to the complainant or to his family from this offending will be long term,” he said.
“Any long-term harm will occur from the complainant’s conduct, which was morally reprehensible.”
But despite this, the women’s conduct could not be condoned.
Sounds like the Judge is not too sympathethic to the complainant.
