Disgraced former Pamapuria School deputy principal James Parker appeared in Kaitaia District Court today for a seven-hour hearing - but the details of what was said can't be published.

He will be back in court on April 10, when he may proceed to sentencing or elect a trial.

In August last year the 38-year-old pleaded guilty to 49 charges of sexually abusing boys during sleepovers at his Awanui farm.
