    A former North Shore community board chairman has admitted paying tens of thousands of dollars access child sex shows being streamed from the Phillippines


    Martin Henry Lawes has pleaded guilty in the High Court in Auckland to three
    charges involving child porn.

    Some of the victims are thought to be as young as three.

    Lawes was caught by a global investigation that began with the FBI in the
    United States.

    He was found to have been using a false online profile to access live
    streamed material.

    Customs officers also found other objectionable material on computers seized
    from his home.

    Lawes will be sentenced in September.
