The son of the Maori King will appear for sentencing at the Auckland District Court tomorrow.

Korotangi Paki, 19, pleaded guilty to two charges of burglary and one of theft from a car.

The three other men who participated in the crimes with Paki appeared in Gisborne District Court last week for sentencing.

Te Ahorangi Totorewa, 20, Hamuera Wipoha Pugh, 19, and Raa Ngaru Smith were each ordered to pay prosecution costs of $400 and discharged without conviction.

In March the men had been drinking before stealing two surfboards from Waikanae Motor Camp.

They then drove to a Wainui Beach home where they took another surfboard and items including a cattle prod and designer hat and jacket (valued at $650) from a car.

On top of any court-imposed sentence, they will also have to complete an eight-step mana restoration programme.
