The 'Beast' to live on Wanganui Prison grounds

The man dubbed the "Beast of Blenheim" will be forced to live in a house on Wanganui Prison grounds outside the security perimeter, and will be one of the first parolees to be continuously tracked by a GPS satellite, after he is released from prison on September 1. The Department of Corrections said the conditions, revealed by the Parole Board today, were the most stringent ever put in place. Wilson, 65, was jailed for 21 years in 1996 for a quarter-century of sexual offending against women and girls including rape, indecent assault, stupefying, wilful ill-treatment of a child and bestiality.
