A man posted explicit sexual images of a woman on an internet
porn site because he thought she had "egged" his car, the
Dunedin District Court heard yesterday.
Dion Shane Kyle, 32, of Dunedin, admitted breaching a
protection order by subjecting the woman to psychologically
abusive behaviour between December 6 and 15 last year.
Kyle had kept copies of consensually made videos and still
images of the particular woman engaged in graphic sexual
activity over several years, prosecutor Sergeant Ross Hutton
told the court.
When his car was "egged" by someone, on or about December 7,
the defendant became angry, believing the woman, whom he
knew, was responsible. He published the images on a
pornographic website, tagging them with the woman's name.
That allowed anyone in the world to search for the images
using the woman's name, Mr Hutton said.
Friends alerted the woman to the fact the images were on the
site and she asked for them to be deleted. Kyle removed them
but they had already been copied to other sites.
He told police he published the images on the porn site
because he was angry with the woman as he believed she had
"egged" his car.
Judge Raoul Neave convicted Kyle and remanded him for
sentence on May 22.
