Stewart Murray Wilson
Born (1946-12-11) 11 December 1946 (age 74)
Timaru, New Zealand
NationalityNew Zealand
Known forSexual offending
Stewart Murray Wilson (born 11 December 1946) was born and raised in Timaru, New Zealand. During his 20s he lived in Sydney before moving to Blenheim, New Zealand. He is known publicly for serious sexual offending including offences against children. He has served 18 years in prison. In September 2012 he was released on parole with the most stringent release conditions ever imposed on a person in New Zealand. These included that he would be required to live in a house on the grounds of the Wanganui prison – which led to public outrage from local citizens and the Wanganui City Council. Wilson was recalled to jail in February 2013 after he allegedly made a phone call to someone he was not allowed to contact.

Biography
His parents divorced during the 1970s. A family friend has reported that Wilson's father used to beat his wife and the children. Wilson was directed to live in a children's home.
Wilson also spent time at Cherry Farm Psychiatric Hospital during his youth. In a letter to the judge prior to sentencing in 2018, Wilson wrote that he had no memory of the events with which he was charged nearly 50 years ago which he put down to "the shock treatment I received while a patient at Cherry farm Hospital, Sunnyside Hospital, Porirua Hospital, Tokanui Hospital, Carrington and Oakley hospital while I was under child welfare for seven years until I was 21 years old... While in those hospitals and welfare homes, I was abused, raped and bullied many many times. I witnessed the murder of a male nurse who I tried to protect and who died in my arms and that person also tried to kill me as I was a witness." Wilson also mentioned that he had been receiving counselling from ACC because of his childhood abuse but his probation officer cancelled it.
Wilson's criminal record began in 1962 when he appeared in court on burglary charges. Prior to the 1990s he also had convictions for assaults on females, living off the earnings of a prostitute, and assault on a child. In 1996 Wilson was convicted on sex offences involving 16 female victims from 1972 to December 1994, when he was arrested. The guilty verdicts were for seven charges of rape, one of attempted rape, six of indecent assault, two of stupefying, one of attempted stupefying, two of wilful ill-treatment of a child, three of assault on a female, and one of bestiality. Some of the charges were laid representatively. One of the indecent assaults was of a girl under the age of 16. He was acquitted of two other charges. Wilson was sentenced in March 1996 to 21 years in prison. During sentencing the judge said that he would have given a sentence of preventive detention, except that this option was not available for him to use.
Lack of rehabilitation in prison
For many years Wilson was held in Rolleston Prison, a low-security prison. This prison has a sex offenders unit called Kia Marama, providing a group-based treatment programme for convicted child sex offenders. However, the Department refused to put Wilson into the programme because he would not admit to a psychologist that he was guilty of the child sex offences for which he was convicted and this is one of the criteria for inclusion: "To be admitted to the Kia Marama Unit, prisoners must admit to their offending.". However one other entry criterion for the programme states that, "denial or other cognitive distortions related to offending behaviour" is an indication of suitability for the programme."
Wilson claimed that not only had he been denied any treatment since being sentenced in 1996, he had also been denied one-on-one counselling with a psychologist – again because he would not admit he was guilty. Prior to his release in 2012 he told the High Court he had received only four hours one-on-one counselling in the 18 years he had been in prison. Wilson said he had also offered to attend a 'Sexual Treatment Outpatients Programme' (STOP) to treat sex offenders, but was not permitted to do so.
Wilson made repeated appearances before the New Zealand Parole Board from September 2006. However, he was not released until his statutory release date in 2012 because he continued to deny responsibility for his offending, appeared to have no remorse, and had not engaged in any treatment. The Corrections Department also claimed he was at high risk of reoffending although his score on the Department's main risk assessment tool (the RoC*RoI) placed him at medium risk.
Parole Board hearings
Prior to his impending release in September 2012, Wilson appeared before the Parole Board at least five times. Each application for early release was turned down. At the age of 65, after 18 years in prison, he was released two days before his statutory release date of 1 September 2012.
In the process of establishing his release conditions, the parole board was told by clinical psychologist, Jane Freeman-Brown, that Wilson was still at high risk of reoffending. Wilson declined to be interviewed for the assessment, which relied instead on information from his prison file. Nevertheless, the Parole Board accepted her assessment of him as high risk and imposed 17 release conditions, said to be the toughest conditions ever imposed on anyone released from prison in New Zealand. The first of those conditions requires Wilson to live in a state house which was to be shifted onto the grounds of Wanganui Prison especially for him. Another condition was for him to wear a GPS tracking device – one of the first prisoners ever to be fitted with one. Wilson is not allowed to use the internet.
Three months after his release Wilson continued to live rent free in a house on prison land. The Parole Board turned down a request from the Corrections Department that would have forced him to pay about $100 a week to live there. His lawyer Andrew McKenzie said Corrections was "essentially asking to take $100, but not give him the rights of tenant". Wilson has not even been allowed to go into stores in Wanganui to buy clothes. McKenzie says the rules surrounding Wilson's release remained unclear.
Public reaction to his release
The news of Wilson's release created a public outcry, led by former Wanganui mayor and controversial broadcaster, Michael Laws who was furious that Wanganui was being used as a 'dumping ground' for sex offenders. The Wanganui District Council was so concerned it filed proceedings with the High Court to try and prevent him being sent there. After the High Court ruled against the City Council, Councillor Ray Stevens started a campaign to have Wilson trespassed from Wanganui shops.
Media coverage about Wilson's release has been extensive. In almost every story, it says he's been dubbed the "Beast of Blenheim". How Wilson first came to be labelled the "Beast" is not known although columnist Rosemary McLeod notes that the media generally cannot get away with such insulting terminology – but says nobody seems to be protesting at Wilson being "dubbed in this way". Jim Hopkins, a columnist for the New Zealand Herald noted for his humorous writing style said: "We're never told who did the dubbery, but it is exceedingly kind of the media to advise us that it's happened."
Very few commentators tried to allay the public's fears. One who did is Victoria University professor, Tony Ward, a clinical psychologist with expertise in sexual offenders. The Howard League for Penal Reform was also concerned about "local bodies feeding moral panic and hysteria" and wrote to the Wanganui District Council stating it may issue a High Court challenge over Council steps to orchestrate the shunning of Murray Wilson.
Recall
Wilson was recalled on an interim basis in February 2013 after Corrections claimed he had made a phone call to a woman on his blacklisted contacts list. When he appeared before the Board in April 2013, the Board made the recall 'indefinite'. The Board said he still posed an undue risk to the community after it emerged that he talked with the woman about leaving the country and said he "remained deceptive in his behaviour and selective in what he chose to disclose to his probation team". This means that Wilson is likely to remain in prison until the end of his sentence in September 2015, after which release conditions can be imposed for a maximum of six months. The Corrections Department is seeking an extended supervision order against Wilson for a term of 10 years, starting when his parole or release conditions come to an end.
His brief stay in the community cost the taxpayer over $200,000 – double the amount it costs to keep a prisoner in jail for a year. This includes the cost of his relocation from Rolleston Prison to Wanganui, the cost of his housing in the grounds of the Wanganui prison and the Crown's cost of defending legal action brought by Wilson and the Wanganui District Council against his placement at Wanganui.
Re-release
Wilson was granted parole again in December, 2014 and released to live in a house on the grounds of Whanganui Prison where he will be subject to GPS monitoring and supervision if he leaves the house.
Later events
In May, 2017, Wilson met journalist Harrison Christian while fishing at the Whanganui river mouth. He told Christian he was being investigated by police once again for historic rape allegations. He denied all of his offending, and demanded more freedom. In 2018 he was sentenced to two years and four months' imprisonment for those historical rapes. In August 2019, it was announced that he was about to be released again, and as of November 2019 he was residing on a house on the grounds of Whanganui Prison. In October, 2021, Wilson died of natural causes in Whanganui hospital, aged 74.
