Wilson's release conditions to be revealed
Wed, 08 Aug 2012 5:24a.m.
The parole release conditions for the first three years of freedom for the convicted rapist known as "the Beast of Blenheim" should be known on Wednesday afternoon.
Stewart Murray Wilson, 65, will be released from prison at the beginning of next month despite most experts who have seen him saying he is a high risk of reoffending.
Wilson was jailed for 21 years in 1996 for sexual offending against women and girls in Blenheim, including rape, attempted rape and bestiality over a 25-year period.
He was sentenced in 1996, before preventive detention laws were introduced, and cannot be held in jail any longer.
The Parole Board met on Tuesday to discuss Wilson's restrictions and a spokeswoman told NZ Newswire those restrictions would be made public on Wednesday afternoon.
The Parole Board's strict release conditions expire in September 2015, after which a 10-year supervision period commences.
Wilson is expected to be one of the first offenders to be issued with an ankle bracelet which can be tracked by satellites after the Government announced they will be introduced from August.
