The case of a young Auckland man who had sex with a
14-year-old Dunedin girl he met through an online dating site
highlighted the dangers of teenagers communicating through
the internet, a Dunedin District Court judge said yesterday.
The actions of a woman who bit the top off her sister's
little finger during a drunken fight were ''excessive and
quite cruel'' because the sister would be disfigured for the
rest of her life, a Dunedin judge said yesterday.
