Parker pleads guilty to more Pamapuria sex assaults
At Kaitaia District Court this morning, former Pamapuria School vice principal, James Parker, pleaded guilty to a further 25 charges, including five charges of sexual assault.
Parker has already pleaded guilty to 49 charges of indecent assault and sexual connection to children aged between nine and 16.
A silent vigil was held outside the courthouse by members of the Enough is Enough group.
Parker, a Pakeha, won the confidence of many in the small Māori community by leading in activities like kapa haka.
