Former college teacher Andrew Loader has today admitted to paying to watch two people, one of whom is under 18-years-old, to have sex.
The 49-year-old appeared in Tauranga District Court today where he pleaded guilty to a charge under the Prostitution Reform Act 2003.
Andrew Loader in Tauranga District Court today.
The previous charge of paying a 16-year-old for sexual services was withdrawn and replaced with one charge of contract sex with a person under the age of 18.
The nature of that charge relates to paying a man in a consensual sexual relationship with a woman under 18-years-old to have sex while he watched.
Loader has been remanded on bail for sentencing on March 15.
The police summary of facts reveals Loader agreed to pay $120 to watch an 18-year-old Tauranga man have sex with his then 16-year-old girlfriend on a bed at his home on two occasions.
Police say the offending took place on November 3 and 10, 2012.
The name of the school where Loader worked is unable to be named due to suppression orders.
The principal of the school previously told SunLive that Loader is no longer working at the school.
“We have been advised that no student at our school has been put at risk.”
The principal says the matter was dealt with by the school board as soon as the allegations came to light and the matter has now been referred to the Teachers Council and police.
The offending was not related to the school, it did not take place at the school, and did not involve any person's attending the school.
