"You served that sentence and completed sex offender's programs," Judge John Smallwood said in sentencing.

In 2002, Hazeldine, who has two children, pleaded guilty to further offences after more victims came forward.

But after serving two months in prison, his sentence was quashed because the Magistrates Court had no jurisdiction to pass sentence in the matter.

The case was forwarded to the County Court in 2003, when Hazeldine was sentenced to two years and 11 months' jail, wholly suspended.

Judge Smallwood said Hazeldine had pleaded guilty to matters relating to six victims.

"All from the same school, all from the same time period," Mr Waters told the court.

In a statement tendered to the court, Hazeldine's wife, Allison, who was present in court, said until the past couple of years, her husband had been unable to look in the mirror because he was so ashamed.

He has not worked since he was first imprisoned in 1998.

In sentencing, Judge Smallwood referenced an old psychiatrist's report that stated Hazeldine was a "sad and broken man with a sad past, present and future".
