BULLY: A Perth magistrate has delayed sentencing a boy who bullied girls into performing sex acts on webcam and the vision on Facebook.
The sentencing of a teenager who bullied schoolgirls into performing sex acts and posted the images on Facebook will set a precedent, a Perth magistrate says.
The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was due to be sentenced in the Perth Childrens Court today, but the matter was again adjourned.
Judge Denis Reynolds said the material provided to him was too scant to make a thorough assessment of the case.
The court was previously told the boy created a Facebook account in the name of a known bully and threatened the two teenage girls over the internet into exposing themselves and performing sex acts on a webcam. He then posted the footage on Facebook.
