Sex offender blames twin brother.

As my readers know, I get real angry when I see manipulative lying scum of the earth slip through the sick system so they can apply their pedophile poison onto innocent and vulnerable children. In the ideal world, I would be a judge sentencing this creep. He would serve 10 years hard labour then I might think about his release. Then again on the day I could sentence the depraved animal to death.
New Zealander's must realize that we are gold medalists at child abuse and the judiciary couldn't give a flying frig! It's way past time we got real tough on these kid fuckers.

A sex offender who faked a CV to work with children fobbed off a suspicious principal who confronted him about his convictions by saying he had a twin brother.

The man, revealed as Te Rito Henry Miki, 40, today admitted using a false CV and birth certificate to work in six schools, two of which were in Auckland.

He also pleaded guilty to four charges of breaching a protection order, which prevented him working with children.

Miki's name suppression was lifted at the Auckland District Court this morning, but his aliases and the names of the schools at which he worked are still suppressed.

Judge Philippa Sinclair convicted Miki and remanded him in custody until sentencing on May 18. A new forgery charge laid by police today will also be dealt with then.

Education Minister Hekia Parata said today she was pleased to hear Miki had plead guilty.

"I think it gives certainty for the whole school sector but for those schools in particular as to what the current situation is."

She supported suppression of the names of the schools Miki had worked at.

"I don't think it is necessary for the public to know, the school are taking care of their particular school communities."

Court documents show that at least two principals became suspicious of Miki since he began working in schools in 2007.

At one school, Miki faked a brain tumour and said he was leaving the teaching profession when the principal aired his concerns.

The next school decided to employ Miki despite being told about his previous convictions and multiple aliases while doing reference checks.

"The principal has confronted the defendant who dismissed the claims stating he had a twin brother who was responsible for the convictions," a court summary reads.

It wasn't until the police became involved with Miki that his true identity was discovered by the principal who then terminated his employment.

After Miki left, the principal then went through his belongings and discovered documentation in another man's name.

The man was a friend of Miki's who had a legitimate teaching qualification.

Miki applied to change his friend's name, then notified the organisation who granted the qualification and the New Zealand Teaching Council of the name change, which he used to gain employment.

Despite these discoveries, it appears neither principal nor the police notified the Teaching Council about Miki's actions.

He was subsequently able to teach under the same alias at two Auckland schools, one for nearly more than a year.

Miki was finally arrested when he was identified by a member of the public earlier this year, when she reportedly spotted him driving a van-load of schoolchildren.

The person, who knew of the man's criminal history, rang the school principal and because she understood he was using a false name, provided the school with a photograph that confirmed his identity.

By that time, Miki had worked at three schools in the Bay of Plenty, one in Taranaki, and two in Auckland.

The schools involved have a combined roll of 2258 children.

At the time of the alleged offending, he was supposed to be adhering to an extended supervision order that normally requires an offender to be subject to parole-type conditions for up to 10 years after release.

A ministerial inquiry into how Miki was hired to work at multiple schools was on track to make an interim report at the end of the month, Parata said.

Inquiry head Mel Smith had found it difficult to speak to key witnesses with the case before the court, prompting him to seek an extension.

Former chief executive of the Education Review Office, Judith Aitken, has been appointed to help Smith with the inquiry.
