'Beast' will reoffend, says former partner

The former partner of serial sex offender Stewart Wilson – known as the ‘Beast of Blenheim’ – says he is “a vicious animal” and will likely reoffend.
Wilson, 65, will be released next month after spending 18 years behind bars for crimes including rape, assault, bestiality and child abuse.
Upon release, Wilson will have the toughest parole conditions ever imposed by the Department of Corrections in New Zealand.
But his former partner, who 3 News cannot name, says Wilson shouldn’t be released from prison.
“I know what he’s like. I was with him for two years,” she told Radio New Zealand.
“I wouldn’t say he’s a person, I’d say he’s an animal.”
She met Wilson in the 1970s after seeing an ad in the classifieds of the local paper.
“He advertised through the Herald or the Sun. Of course, I answered it and he said he’d take me out that night. He was looking for a female for company,” she told 3 News.
After meeting him once she says she didn’t want to see him again. But Wilson kept coming back.
Wilson later sexually assaulted her and so she called the police.
“It was bloody awful. I had to get rid of him in the end,” she says.
“I got a couple of hidings and everything else to go with it… It has affected me a lot, in every way I think.”
Wilson was imprisoned in 1996 and sent letters to his former partner from inside.
She never replied and pretended he had the wrong address.
After learning of his release next month, she has became worried again.
“He’s not the type of guy to be rehabilitated. He’ll never change,” she says.
“As far as I’m concerned, they can bloody hang the bastard. He’s that bloody cruel.”
She expected Wilson to die in prison and says she is still not ruling it out.
“I reckon the crew down in Whanganui will get to him. If the inmates get near him, I think they’ll finish him off.”
When asked how she would describe Wilson she replied: “Vicious. Vicious in every way”.
Wilson will be released from Christchurch’s Rolleston Prison at the beginning of next month and moved to a special house next to Whanganui Prison.
Conditions of Wilson’s parole include:
If Wilson breaches any of the conditions, prison officers from next door will immediately intervene.
He can also be recalled to prison if he shows an increased risk to the community.

How much is it going to cost the taxpayers to make sure this animal or worse than a animal is kept safe? Please dont say its for the protection of the public because to protect the public this animal should be behind bars for the rest of his life. Wouldnt it be cheaper to keep him behind bars, of course not make the taxpayers waste more money so that this dog can commit another crime. The legal system in this country sucks. There is no justice. He is not welcome anywhere in the country. Find a legal way to keep him jail.

I don't wish to be critical of your article but there are huge gaps?? His former partener says she was with him for 2 years! You go from her replying to an ad and meeting him once and then her saying she never wanted to see him again? then straight to him sexually assaulting her (his then partener i assume?) so she called the police? So at what point of the relationship did this happen?? At the end is this how he was caught?? so what happened in the 2 years you skipped over?? Or earlier on in which case she and the Police knew what he was like?? I am in no way blaming her but if you write an article that puts fear into scociety you have to get the facts accross not just your own biased opinion? He was obviously full of hate and anger and it emerged as violence and rage! He clearly needs psychiatric help I just hope his former partener got the help she needed after this?

If he can not accept the crimes that he has done, then no way should he be put in the community, he should be placed in a institute to assist him with taking resposibility for his actions or a longer imprisonment should be imposed until he can accept and take the resonable steps to admit his actions. Do you know how many lives this man has desroyed? It is disgusting that he is a high risk offender yet the law qill let him out so he can ruin many more lives. This not only terrifies me but it makes my skin shiver! Who do I write to?

And we the poor tax payers probably pay more for all this monitoring of this mongrel when he could be in prison, where he so belongs at a cheaper cost I would imagine. But hey that is is our dumb justice system. Justice isn't what they are about. No they are all about rehabilitation and does it work for most.........NO!!! Lock the freak back up so people can get on with life not having to look over thier shoulder all the time.

Can't we desex him? We do that to man's best friend!
In Singapore the memory and the threat of caning is an effective deterent for sex reoffenders.

I am no expert but just reading the parole conditions set out one would assume that they do not trust him and have not helped him to overcome his mental problems? The system we have in place now is to rehabilitate people back into society. I approve of this as this is the only way forward but question whether any of this has taken place re-this case? They are making him a prisoner without walls. If he can not seek employment, use the internet, drive a vehicle how is he going to start to live any sort of normal life? Surly this would be the whole point of his parole. The conditions set out you would expect that alone to steer him back to what he was as they are not letting him develop as a normal person, if in fact that is possible?? If they have a program set out where this is the next healthy step for him then great but it appears it is more due to the end of his sentence. If that is true then I guess the system has failed him and society just want to close their ears and just want to see more punishment dished out. Shame that those are the only options as I do think we are better than this and have the ability and knowledge to change things in a positive way but we lack the desire and compassion.

And we are to believe that the parole authorities are capable of keeping this animal away from decent folks? Get real.
