Double rapist to be released from prison

12:54 pm on 5 April 2012

The Parole Board is confident a convicted double rapist can be released from prison on parole, even though he has not completed a sex offenders treatment programme.

Ihaia Mack Moeau will be released this month, having served nine years of his 10 year sentence.

The Parole Board says it is too late into Moeau's sentence to deal with the issue of the treatment programme.

It says Moeau resisted the programme but has been involved and engaged in counselling to sort out issues in his life and attitude.

Moeau will be subject to 24 hour electronic monitoring and has to undertake further counselling.
