Former school deputy pleads guilty to child sex abuse charges

A FORMER Ipswich deputy school principal has pleaded guilty to three historical child sex abuse charges.

Paul Anthony Wruck, 56, pleaded guilty today in the Brisbane District Court to three counts of unlawful or indecent treatment of a child under the age of 14.

Wruck was still working at St. Mary's College in Ipswich when he was arrested in October this year but has since resigned.

Wruck was both a mentor figure and a family friend of his 13-year-old schoolboy victim when the offences occurred in 1982 and 1983.

The court heard Wruck performed oral sex on the boy on two occasions, rubbed his penis against the boy and masturbated in front of him.

Judge Brian Devereaux sentenced Wruck to 18 months in jail to be suspended after four months.
