Teacher admits to sex charge

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The previous charge of paying a 16-year-old for sexual services was withdrawn and replaced with one charge of contract sex with a person under the age of 18.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.

Shouldn't be teaching

He shouldn't be allowed to teach again. He's a man clearly with sexual temptations with young people who got caught in the act. So Ministry of Education step up and wipe his name off as a teacher.

A set up........really???

Are you serious @bigted......The man has admitted to paying to watch two people have sex....one of which is under age (effectivly still a child) we all know the difference between right and wrong and what he did was wrong. A person in his position should absolutly have known this was wrong and he should be punished accordingly. So im sorry but if this "mans" life may be ruined then maybe being caught out will stop him from doing this again or even worse taking it to the next level.

'a setup by two teenagers' yet he pleaded guilty to the charges

Missed the point

You have missed the point again bigted, this man has ruined his own life, not the media. I wonder if it was your daughter or son who was involved in this, that you would still feel the same. I hope he never teaches again. How could he ever be trusted or respected?

What a stupid and irresponsible comment to make! This man is/was a teacher who whilst working in that environment has admitted to paying to watch teenagers have sex! Where are you coming from if you condone this sort of behavior from a teacher?

Storm in a teacup?

Those two teenagers had nothing to do with this coming out. Bigted I ask you this... If you were a parent and you saw explicit messages to your teenager from a teacher, what would you do? This is no set up!!

This is

SICK and as a teacher he should know better..this is someone who is supposed to teach our children.. I am horrified.. I hope he is struck off and never teaches again!

A teacups' storm

This incident has been blown all out of proportion by another local newspaper with a moral "we have the right to know" intervention. A mans life may have been ruined, which to me smells of a big set-up by two teenagers. Mr. Judge, I truly hope his sentence reflects this.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
