Extension to paedophile supervision order sought

1:50 pm on 28 February 2015

An extension to the supervision order in place for the convicted paedophile Lloyd McIntosh is likely to be sought.

McIntosh has convictions for raping a 23-month-old baby and a six-year-old child.

He was released from prison in 2004, but was placed under extended supervision which involved his being electronically monitored for 10 years.

This order would expire next month, but Radio New Zealand understands the Department of Corrections will apply to have it extended for up to another 10 years.

Such applications have been made possible by the passing of an amendment to the Parole Act late last year.
