Dunedin man posted sex images of woman online

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.
