Former Labour Party Chairman, Peter McLaughlin, aged 61, entered his guilty pleas on the day he was due to stand trial at Carlisle Crown Court over 15 similar allegations of abusing a young boy.
Homosexual Labour Party Chairman of Stanley Town Council and former coach driver who lived in Carlisle has admitted to raping a schoolboy. Peter McLaughlin had until recently denied any wrong doing, but he finally admitted sexually assaulting and molesting the boy when his victim was much younger. An earlier hearing heard how McLaughlin committed the offences in the 1990`s when he lived in the Greystone Road area of Carlisle. The court heard that the defendant deliberately befriended his victim at a time when he worked as a coach driver for Redcrest Holidays, travelling all over Britain and Europe.
In court, Prosecutor Kim Whittlestone outlined how the allegations have been scrutinised during two trials. After the first, the Jury were unable to reach a verdict, while in the most recent one the illness of a Juror led to the case being abandoned. The decision to accept the two guilty pleas offered was reached after a detailed consultation with the victim, who otherwise would have faced the prospect of testifying for a third time.
As a result of the guilty pleas, Judge Peter Hughes QC ordered that McLaughlin, who now lives in Murray Park, Stanley County Durham, should sign the Sexual Offences Register. The period of time he will be on the register will be determined by the sentence that will ultimately be imposed. The Judge also made the defendant subject to an indefinite Sexual Offences Prevention Order, which severely restricts his future contacts with any child.
Referring to the victim`s decision to accept the guilty pleas, Miss Whittlestone added, "He wants to ensure that this does not happen again - hence the Sexual Offences Prevention Order".
Judge Hughes granted McLaughlin bail until the sentencing hearing on January 2nd 2015 so that background reports can be prepared. He also added that he will be considering ALL sentencing options.
