Brandyn Alan Stewart pleaded guilty last Wednesday to threatening behaviour and offensive suggestions. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said Stewart started to communicate with a 16-year-old female on Facebook about three months ago. He asked her to send him a photo of herself on April 24 and asked again on the following day. At 11pm the defendant sent a text mess- age to the victim indicating he knew where she lived. He also wanted to meet the victim but she declined, Mr Ford said. Stewart said in a text that the victim s mother was a slut and he would graffiti their home if he did not receive photos of the victim topless and in her underwear. Mr Ford said Stewart also threatened to harm their pet the following day. At about 3.03pm he sent another mess- age stating that if he didn t have the pic- ture by 4.30pm he would get her dog and kill it. The victim, who was extremely upset by this stage, notified her parents. Mr Ford said Stewart was arrested on April 27. In explanation the defendant stated that he did not know why he did it. The defendant was also remorseful for his actions, stating that he was stupid and took responsibility for any hurt that he had caused. Defence counsel Geoff Fulton said Stew- art s Facebook page had been taken down. Unfortunately with these social networking sites people say strange things and it exacerbates from there, he said. Mr Fulton suggested Stewart, who had a history of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, be given a fine for the charge. Judge Susan Thomas rejected the suggestion and said she wanted him to receive help. I do not think so. It s very bizarre behav- iour, she said. He needs some sort of counselling and I think we need to see a report. Stewart was remanded until July 13, he was ordered to have no contact with the victim and not to enter their property. An order was also made for the destruc- tion of his cellphone. Woman admits fraud A woman who illegally received $47,000 in benefit payments had committed ongoing deception, Judge Bruce Davidson said. Donna McEwen, 37, appeared in court a fortnight ago and admitted five charges of using a document for pecuniary aid. Judge Davidson said McEwen had received the benefit for three-and-a-half years after tell- ing authorities that she was liv- ing alone with her child. There was ongoing deception through that period. To put it bluntly, it s theft of public money. You will never repay it. A spokesperson from the Min- istry of Social Development said McEwen went to their offices and admitted she had been receiving the benefit illegally. It is understood she might not have been caught otherwise. Defence counsel Phyllis Stra- chan said McEwen had been in a relationship with an abusive partner and had spent time in a women s shelter. She returned to live with her partner. He would not support her so she sought the benefit. She s really had a very hard road. Judge Davidson said it was another example of a male part- ner leaving a situation, with no liability. McEwen was sentenced to three months home detention and 120 hours of community work. She was no longer living with the former partner and was supported in court by her sister. Drinking mum sprayed Police pepper-sprayed a mother of three who kicked an officer after drinking home-brew alcohol. Adith Tapurau, 25, pleaded guilty to hindering police and causing wilful damage two weeks ago. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said a resident called police to Tapurau s address on April 23, because she was having a loud party. She was in a back room with an associate. He began acting aggressively. Mr Ford said Tapurau obstruct- ed police and became violent when they tried to arrest the man, who was her partner. She kicked an officer in the leg and kicked a window in the back seat of a police car. Some damage resulted. Duty lawyer Mike Sceats said the defendant did not recall some of the night because they were drinking home-brew, which was double-strength beer. She said she doesn t drink often and it was only the second time this year . . . Her boyfriend had been playing up to police. They were pepper-sprayed and as a result she lashed out. Judge Bruce Davidson sen- tenced Tapurau to six months intensive supervision.
