Sex offender Stewart Murray Wilson is still denying an alleged breach of his parole conditions.

A telephone conference regarding Wilson's case was held, in chambers, before Judge David Cameron at Wanganui District Court this afternoon.

Wilson, 66, was released on parole in August last year after spending 18 years in prison for sexual offending against women and girls.

He is accused of using his cellphone in February to call a female he was instructed not to contact.

Wilson was recalled to prison following the alleged breach, which he denied during an appearance in Wanganui District Court on February 22.

His plea has not changed, but his defended hearing, which was due to take place on May 13, has been cancelled.

The next step for Wilson's case will be another judicial conference in June.
