NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — British Columbia teenager Amanda Todd feared that the person who was harassing and extorting her would continue for the rest of her life, and there was nothing she could do to stop it, a Crown attorney told B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Kristen LeNoble showed the court a Facebook post that Todd wrote shortly after the harasser shared sexualized images of her, saying, "I feel so sad, I feel so sick."

The teen from Port Coquitlam, who died nearly a decade ago, had previously written a post asking people to support her, and not judge her, as she feared her harasser was about to distribute content depicting her in a sexual manner, she said.

"This is such a horrible feeling for me," LeNoble read from one of Todd's posts.

She told the jury trial for Aydin Coban, the Dutch man accused of extorting Todd, that the person had been threatening to distribute links to her family, friends and classmates unless she performed a series of sexual "shows" on a web camera.

Coban has pleaded not guilty to extortion, harassment, communication with a young person to commit a sexual offence and possessing child pornography.

At one point, one of the numerous aliases used to extort Todd sent a message telling her she had until the end of the day "until all hell breaks loose," LeNoble said.

The person also threatened to report Todd to child-protection authorities, she said.

LeNoble said Todd had written a Facebook post urging people to block one of the harasser's accounts, saying it was a "sick pedophile" who was blackmailing her.

The teen wrote, "He will send you a link of me, of what I did that was very stupid, but people make mistakes," she said.

Todd implored people not to share any content they may receive, she said.

"I'm like bawling my eyes out," said LeNoble, reading from the post.

LeNoble told the jury on Tuesday that by the time the Crown has finished its closing argument, it will have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Coban was the person behind 22 separate online aliases used to harass and extort Todd.

Later Wednesday, attorney Marcel Daigle moved to the next phase of the Crown's argument to prove that one person was behind all of the accounts.

Daigle showed the jury examples of messages that Todd received from different usernames on multiple online platforms, including Facebook, YouTube and Gmail, some of which were "word for word the same" and sent on the same day.

All roads lead to accused, Crown tells jury for man charged with extorting B.C. teen

  All roads lead to accused, Crown tells jury for man charged with extorting B.C. teen NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — A Crown attorney says there is a "treasure trove of information" linking a Dutch man to the harassment and extortion of British Columbia teenager Amanda Todd. Louise Kenworthy wrapped up the Crown's closing arguments, telling a B.C. Supreme Court jury trial that the case against Aydin Coban was circumstantial, but the two devices seized by police are the link to the Port Coquitlam teenager. Coban has pleaded not guilty to extortion, harassment, communication with a young person to commit a sexual offence and possessing child pornography. Kenworthy told the court that "all roads lead to Mr.

LeNoble told the court Todd had also pushed back against her harasser, sending them a message saying she hoped they felt guilty for "ruining a young girl's life."

She showed the jury messages the harasser had exchanged on Facebook with several people Todd was connected with on the site, including one male friend who expressed interest in viewing sexualized images of the teen.

The harasser shared a link to a pornography website, and Todd's Facebook friend responded, "Sick, thanks bro," LeNoble said.

The extortion began just before Todd turned 13 in November 2009, she said.

Crown prosecutor Louise Kenworthy told the jury at the start of the trial almost two months ago that Todd had been the victim of a persistent campaign of online "sextortion" over three years before her death at age 15 in October 2012.

The Crown is expected to continue its arguments for the rest of the week.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 27, 2022.
