A 21-year-old man has pleaded guilty to doing an indecent act on three boys at the Gloriavale Christian Community.
A police inquiry into allegations of child sexual abuse at the West Coast community has been under way since July. Police, supported by Oranga Tamariki staff, have been at Gloriavale interviewing community members.
The 21-year-old, who was first charged in September, pleaded guilty to three charges of doing an indecent act on boys aged between 12 and 16, at the Greymouth District Court on Wednesday.
