A former youth worker in the NSW Hunter region is facing 15 charges for historical sex crimes allegedly committed against two boys between 1990 and 2004.
The 71-year-old man from Marks Point was arrested on Thursday morning following an eight-month investigation.
The charges include sexual intercourse with children, supplying prohibited drugs, and committing aggravated indecent assault on someone under the offender's authority.
They were allegedly committed over a 15-year-period in Muswellbrook and Gateshead.
The man has been refused bail and will appear at Newcastle Local Court on Friday.
