Wellington, Nov 28 NZPA - A New Plymouth woman has been jailed for a year for threatening to shoot her victim if she testified against her.

Courtney Chapman-Stone, 18, barmaid, admitted two charges of attempting to pervert justice, assault with intent to injure, theft and intimidation.

She had threatened to shoot her young female victim and cut her up if she testified against her and had kicked her several times in the head after they got into a fight, The Taranaki Daily News reported.

Prosecutor Mark Wilton told New Plymouth District Court that Chapman-Stone stole her victim's wallet and tobacco while her victim was still on the floor.

After police laid assault charges against her, Chapman-Stone later texted her victim, threatening to shoot her and get her associates to cut her up.

She also tried to bribe the girl with $200 if she dropped the charges.
