The man known as the 'Beast of Blenheim' has been released on parole.
Stewart Murray Wilson was imprisoned for 21 years in 1996 for a raft of sexual offences, including rape and sexual assault.
In 2012, he was released under strict conditions to a house within the grounds of Whanganui Prison, but was recalled to jail in 2013 after breaching parole.

In October 2018 Wilson was found guilty of 11 historical sex charges - including rape, attempted rape, indecent assault, threatening to kill and indecency with a girl under the age of 12 - and jailed again.
He continues to deny all sex charges.
After a hearing in late July, the Parole Board announced on Thursday that Wilson will be released on parole on effectively the same conditions of his 2012 release.
"These are extremely tight conditions of control," panel convenor Sir Ron Young says.
Wilson will return to live in a residence immediately outside Whanganui Prison, and will be monitored by probation officers and GPS.
"We are satisfied that given the special conditions imposed, we can impose including significant control over Mr Wilson’s whereabouts and his capacity to re-offend then with those conditions he is no longer an undue risk and may now be released," Sir Ron says.
Wilson remains at a medium to high risk of re-offending.
