Alosio Taimo, the Auckland rugby coach on trial for sexually abusing boys, has been found guilty of most of the 106 charges laid against him. The 55-year-old has been on trial in the High Court at Auckland for nine weeks. Crown prosecutor Jasper Rhodes had argued Taimo sexually abused boys at his job at McDonald's where he worked as a manager, at a school where he later worked as a teacher aide and in his own home and car, amongst others. Mr Rhodes talks to Philippa Tolley.
