Man guilty of abusing girl over nine years
Fri, 07 Sep 2012 8:30p.m.
A former Gisborne deputy principal has been found guilty of sexually abusing a girl over a nine-year period.
Norman John Foote, 65, was found guilty on Thursday by a Rotorua District Court jury of two charges of sexually violating the girl by unlawful connection and four charges of either doing an indecent act on the girl or indecently assaulting her, the Rotorua Daily Post reports.
He was found not guilty of one charge of doing an indecent act.
His offending against the girl happened over a nine-year period in the 1990s, starting when the complainant was a child.
He is no longer employed in schools.
Foote was jailed in 2007 for 10 months for downloading images depicting the sexual abuse of children as young as three. He had downloaded the images on a school computer.
Name suppression lapsed on Thursday after Foote's lawyer Murray McKechnie said he would not be applying for it to continue.
Foote was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on October 26.
