From the Dominion Post 26th September 2014
With one final flourish - a one fingered gesture to the sentencing judge - Alan Ivo Greer began a sentence of preventive detention for sexual offending against teenagers. The sentencing in the High Court in Wellington today was marked by Greer, 52, interrupting, laughing at his victim's trauma and insults to the judge. Greer had been found guilty of sexual violation by rape, two of supply of methamphetamine, one of supply of cannabis, two of aggravated burglary, possession of an offensive weapon and three of threatening to kill. He had represented himself at trial. A former sentencing date had to be put off because Greer refused to co-operate with report writers.
He has continued to refuse but Justice Alan MacKenzie would not put the sentencing off any longer despite Greer calling him a fascist and saying he should recuse himself. When Justice MacKenzie decided to go ahead with the sentencing Greer shouted, "obviously the court is full of s***, as are you, Judge". Justice MacKenzie said Greer had befriended two girls, aged 16 and 17, and supplied them with methamphetamine and one with cannabis. He threatened their families, broke into their homes with weapons and threatened to slit the throat of the father of one. He broke into the house of one victim with a shotgun and knife, took her to his home in Castlepoint, plied her with drugs and alcohol and raped her when she passed out. The judge said the families took the threats seriously, believing Greer had the means to carry out any threat.
Greer began laughing when Justice MacKenzie called it a reign of terror. The judge said Greer had 153 previous convictions, beginning when he was 14 in the Youth Court, and had been to prison for seven years for sexual violation in 2004. Justice MacKenzie said those offences showed disturbing similarities to the current charges. He had to stop several times during the sentencing to tell Greer to be quiet, only to have Greer shout "you be quiet" back at him. The judge said Greer had a paranoid personality and believed he was the victim of conspiracies. "You hold the entrenched belief that you are being victimised, which is shown in your conduct before, during and after the trial," MacKenzie said. He said there was a high risk of Greer reoffending and he had come to the belief the only sentence was preventive detention. He also imposed a minimum non-parole period of 10 years.

A Wairarapa man who could be get an open-ended jail term is refusing to co-operate with the preparation of reports needed before he can be sentenced. Allan Ivo Greer, 52, was to have been sentenced in the High Court at Wellington today on charges including rape, supplying drugs and aggravated burglary. The Crown has asked that Greer be sentenced to preventive detention, an indefinite jail term available for serious or repeated crimes of sex or violence where reoffending is likely. But before preventive detention could be imposed a court has to have two reports from psychological and psychiatric health assessors.
A report from a probation officer is also standard. When Greer, who represents himself, appeared in court today Justice Alan MacKenzie said Greer had refused to "engage" with the report writers. One of the health assessors had written a report based on information already held about Greer but the other and the probation officer both said they were unable to prepare their reports. The judge said he was not expressing any view about whether preventive detention was the appropriate sentence but he would not go ahead without that option. He said the report writers should try to interview Greer but if he still refused to speak to them the reports should be prepared on the available material. Greer did not speak during this morning's hearing and was remanded in custody until late September.
From NZ Herald story 6th May 2002
A dangerous sex offender has escaped from one of the country's most secure mental health units less than a year after security was upgraded because of two other escapes. Allan Ivo Greer, 40, climbed over a 5m fence and fled the Porirua Purehurehu Unit at 6.15pm on Saturday. He had been in the unit for three months as a special patient, and it appeared that his escape had been carefully planned. The Purehurehu Regional Forensic Health Unit is home to 15 of the nation's most dangerous offenders. It takes referrals from courts and prisons, including offenders acquitted on the grounds of insanity. Police would not say what Greer, who is also known as "Grub", had been sent to the unit for, but he was "very well-known" to them.
The Herald understands that Greer is a sex offender who also has a history of violence against adults and children. Greer was last night being hunted by police in the Horowhenua and Wellington regions, although sources admitted that he could now be anywhere in the country. It is understood that police have moved to protect his victims. Greer is the third to escape from the Purehurehu Unit in 18 months. The unit's security fence was upgraded and extra cameras added last July, after two escapes within two weeks. The changes cost about $200,000, and at the time the mesh used on the fence was referred to as unclimbable. One of last year's escapers was Leslie Raymond Parr, who was found not guilty on the grounds of insanity of strangling, stabbing and decapitating his girlfriend, Fiona Maulolo, in 1997. His escape lasted 1 1/2 hours. Capital Coast Health spokesman Michael Tull said yesterday that security would need to be reviewed again in light of Greer's escape.
Greer was supposed to have been inside the building at the time of his escape, but he managed to find a way to enter the unit's exercise yard instead, Mr Tull said. Patients are not allowed into the area without supervision. Greer climbed over the fence and was spotted by staff as he ran away. Mr Tull said staff numbers were not a factor in the escape - there were eight staff on duty at the time. It appeared that Greer had planned the break for some days, waiting for the right moment to move. Other patients were being questioned to establish whether he had any help. "Clearly there was a breach in security that allowed him to escape. We've closed off the avenue so that nobody can replicate it. There will be an investigation, and we will be looking at an upgrade to the fence," Mr Tull said. He added that the unit had experienced just the three escapes in 10 years of operation. Greer is 168cm (5ft 6in) tall and has some teeth missing. Police say he should not be approached.
