Mr Jason you have pleaded guilty pursuant to s 153A of the Summary Proceedings Act to four indictably-laid charges. Two charges of doing an indecent act on a boy under 12 and two charges of permitting a boy under the age of 12 to do an indecent act on you.
 For many years you and your late wife lived on a remote rural block in the Bay of Islands. For many years up to 1999, and continuing up until today’s date, you placed yourself in the position of a grandfather figure for the young boys who lived in the area, many of whom had problems of their own. You would often invite them or allow them to come into your house for meals. You would mentor them.
 One of the activities you engaged in was taking, normally just one at a time, these boys for bush walks, going to secluded locations. You would have the boy carry a bag of yours. At the end of the walk you would often pay the boys $20 or so, explaining that as payment for carrying your bags on these trips.
 The victim in this matter was one of these boys. You started a platonic friendship with him when he was nine. By that I mean there was no sexual activity between you. There is some information in the summary of fact, and this is advanced by the Crown, that for a year or so you groomed him so that when you later, on two quite discreet occasions, indecently assault him and got him to do an indecent act on you, he would be more prepared to do that, in comparison to a boy that you might have just met.
 The first occasion where sexual touching occurred was during one of these walks that you and he went on. You got him to lie down on a blanket that you had brought with you. You rubbed oil on his back, down his legs. You told him to turn over. You then commenced to rub oil over the front of his body, commencing at his shoulders, working down his chest to his genital area where you touched his penis and massaged that. When you had finished massaging him you lay down and you got him to massage you, which included rubbing oil on to your genitalia in the same manner that you had done to him. Your penis at the time was erect. When he returned home you paid him $40 and told him not to tell the other boys that you had doubled the amount.
 The second discreet occasion was very similar. Again this massaging.
