Lloyd Alexander McIntosh
A "high risk" sex offender has become the first person in New Zealand to have his strict monitoring programme extended for another decade.
Lloyd Alexander McIntosh's 10-year extended supervision order, designed to protect the public from potentially dangerous offenders, was set to expire on June 11.
According to a judgement by Justice Rachel Dunningham, the Department of Corrections applied to the High Court at Christchurch this month to have the order renewed.
As part of its application, Corrections also sought an intensive monitoring condition for the first year of the extended supervision order, the judgement says.
The court was provided with a health assessor's report which said McIntosh had committed sex crimes against vulnerable victims and he remained a "high risk" of further offending.
McIntosh's counsel filed no opposition to the application.
"In fact, [counsel] notes that Mr McIntosh welcomes the order as a means to provide for continuity for his support and care at the [residential centre where he lives]," the judgement says.
Dunningham approved the application.
McIntosh's crimes include the rape of a 23-month-old baby and a 6-year-old child.
In 2004, the paedophile, who has to take drugs to control his sex drive, was set to be released to live in a rural Canterbury town, but public outrage forced Corrections to house him in a unit on the grounds of Christchurch Men's Prison.
The same year he became the first man to be the subject of a 10-year extended supervision order.
Corrections was able to apply to have the order extended this month under the Parole (Extended Supervision Orders) Amendment Act passed last year.
The legislation allows Corrections to apply for an extension of an existing order, without the offender committing new eligible offences.
Extended supervision orders are designed to protect the public from high-risk violent and sexual offenders when they have completed their jail terms.
They allow the Parole Board to impose special conditions, such as electronic monitoring.
