Man accused of cyber-bullying Amanda Todd sentenced

Amanda Todd's mother hopes for justice in her daughter's case following Dutch ruling

Aydin Coban shown in an artist's sketch from court was handed a maximum sentence of nearly 11 years in prison because of the Netherland court's fears he will reoffend

The court on Thursday convicted the 38-year-old man, identified only as Aydin C., for fraud and blackmail via the internet, according to a statement from the Dutch legal authorities. "I am saddened that someone has to go through those behaviours in order to bring joy to himself". "And the supreme court in the Netherlands will rule whether he will be extradited to Canada".

"I'm relieved, I'm satisfied, and I'm so happy that the courts over there decided on these verdicts and gave him 10 years and 243 days". He was found guilty of sexually abusing 34 underage girls, who he convinced to perform sexual acts in front of a webcam. In some cases, the abuse lasted years.

A Dutch court has approved his extradition following his trial in Amsterdam. He has appealed that decision and denies involvement in any cyberbullying.

Coban is facing five separate charges in Canada in relation to Amanda Todd, including possession of child pornography and extortion.

Filipino tycoons included in Forbes' list of world's richest

In October 2012, Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old from Port Coquitlam, committed suicide after posting a video on YouTube saying she was blackmailed by an online predator after exposing her breasts on a webcam. While her daughter's case isn't part of the European proceedings, Todd travelled to the Netherlands to be in the courtroom when the trial first started.

"It's been seven years and Amanda is no longer with us", she said.

Meanwhile, Amanda's mom Carol Todd, says there's a feeling of relief but the journey isn't over. "Amanda's story has touched the hearts of many".
