One of the men facing new crimes related to historic sexual abuse at Dillworth School pleaded guilty.

Former Vice-Principal Ian Wilson has pleaded guilty to five charges indicted today in the Auckland District Court.

He is one of five men facing a total of 33 new accusations after an additional 80 victims appeared in police as part of Operation Beverly.

Wilson was found guilty and convicted of including an obscene assault on a boy aged 12-16.

The court heard that a report on the impact of the victim would be prepared.

He then appeared on March 23, and his bail continued.

He appeared in the dock wearing a medical face mask.

In November, Wilson pleaded guilty to two charges, including obscene acts, while working at Dillworth School.

Wilson was a Scout Leader, Senior House Master at McMurray Boarding House, and High School Vice Principal from 1988 to 1996. He also taught history and teleomaori.
