In September last year, the 19 year old woman wrote a message to another woman on Facebook. First, she wrote she "wanted to mash her face". A few days later she sent another message - "her face would not be so beautiful afterwards".

The District Court in Halden reviewed the case and 19-year-old received a fine of 5000 NOK (800 USD) for the threats. 

In the court, the 19-year-old acknowledged the guilt after the victim showed printed Facebook messages.

19-year-old is convicted of violating another’s peace with intimidating or harassing behavior. The penalty is fixed at a fine of 5000 NOK, alternatively ten days in jail, ruled the court.
