Police are pleased with the 20 year sentence handed to convicted sex offender, ex-teacher and regular Cathedral Square busker Graeme Joblin.
The four year investigation began with an initial disclosure that eventually led to ten victims being identified.
Detective Warwick Holmes, who led the investigation recognises the courage and bravery of the victims as the most significant factor in securing the conviction of Joblin.
"For those victims to confront what occurred to them and remain strong throughout the prolonged investigation was courageous. We hope that this result will enable all victims to move forward in their lives in a positive way."
"Joblin's predatory tactics of targeting vulnerable youths has severely impacted many lives and his offending has adversely effected the social tapestry of Christchurch. " says Detective Holmes,
