Paedophile teacher James Parker sentenced

Paedophile school teacher James Parker has been sentenced to preventive detention with a minimum non-parole period of seven years in an emotionally-charged sentencing before a court room packed with his victims and their families. The former deputy principal of Pamapuria School in Northland was sentenced by Justice Paul Heath in the High Court at Whangarei after earlier admitting 74 sex charges relating to sleepovers with boys at his Awanui farm between 1999 and 2012.
