He also pleaded guilty to the rape, a sexual assault on a man and taking an indecent photo of a boy.
Former parish councillor pleads guilty to raping teenager and other child sex offences
A former parish council chairman faces prison after he admitted raping a teenage girl and sexually assaulting five boys.
Mark McCormick, who was the chair of Bursledon Parish Council, pleaded guilty to 14 indecent assaults between 1997 and 2011 charged against him at Southampton Crown Court, on the second day of his trial.
These include the rape of a 16-year-old and inciting boys under the age of 16 to engage in sexual activity.
The 49-year-old could now face a lengthy custodial sentence.
Last year, McCormick appeared at Southampton Magistrates’ Court where he did not enter a plea as the charges were too serious for the court.
McCormick became a prominent figure within Bursledon, but it is understood he stepped down from his public role in 2017, after he was re-elected chairman of the parish council in May 2016.
The parish council last year posted a vacancy for a councillor after McCormick resigned from the post.
In 2016, he was at the forefront of a bitter fight between the parish council and the Bursledon and District Community Association (BDCA) after the parish council were effectively evicted from their offices by the BDCA, which managed the building.
McCormick is also listed as one of the DJs and presenters working for the Southampton-based company Avenue Artistes Limited.
He will be sentenced for one count of rape, three of indecent activity with a child, three counts of multiple incidents of indecent assault on a child, five of indecent assault on a male person, one of sexual assault and one count of taking indecent photographs of a child.
McCormick was remanded in custody to be sentenced at Southampton Crown Court on Friday, October 12.
