Women try to blackmail two-timing lover

Kaycee and Lani - totally guilty but given a light sentence by a Judge who was totally sympathetic.

Two women who discovered they were in a relationship with the same man exacted revenge upon his porperty and attempted to blackmail him.

Kaycee Te Aomarama Wall, 30, and Lani Aperahama, 40, each broke up with the man (who had his name suppressed in court)and later went to his home to collect belongings.

When they learned of each other’s relationship with him, they started destroying his belongings.

Their list of activities included pouring maple syrup in his bed, cooking his shoes in a microwave, breaking a lampshade and ornaments, Pouring bleach on his clothing, turning the freezer off, putting tools and clothesin a spa pool and generally trashing the place.

They went further by agreeing to try and blackmail him, using a photo he had sent them both of him exposing his genitals. They demanded $4,000 each, which was their assessment of the amount they believed was owed to them for their contribution to their relationships with him.

The women threatened to send photographs of his genitals to his workplace, bank and a cafe where his daughter worked unless he paid them the money.

After several days of heated communications, the man went to the police and laid a complaint against Aperahama and Wall.

The pair were convicted of intentional damage and blackmail and yesterday were sentenced in the High Court at Auckland to 350 hours of community work. They had earlier pleaded guilty to the charges.

Imposing sentence, Justice Peter Woodhouse said the women went into the house and Wall was overcome with anger when she saw the man’s bed.

“My broad assessment is it was a scheme dreamt up on the spur of the moment,” Justice Woodhouse said.

“It gathered its own momentum and neither of you pulled back from it when you should have.”

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.

Justice Woodhouse siad he did not believe “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.

The judge said Aperahama and Wall had shown remorse for their offending.

He also quoted from the man’s victim impact statement. “I have to accept the relationship with Ms Wall continued after Ms Aperahama moved in with me,” it said.

“I accept that for a period I was seeing both. I am not proud of that. I apologise to both of them. I did wrong to both of them and I deeply regret it.”

Newswarped suggests any bloke who wants to carry on with two women at the same time is asking for trouble. He must accept that adverse reactions from the women upon hearing the truth that he is a ‘rat’ are to be expected.
