Appeal by sex offender rejected by Supreme Court

1:25 pm on 20 August 2013

A convicted serial sex offender has had another plea against returning to prison rejected, this time by the Supreme Court.

The Parole Board recalled Stewart Murray Wilson to prison in April after he breached some of his release conditions.

Wilson served 16 years for multiple rapes of women, assault, drugging, ill-treating children and bestiality.

He has repeatedly appealed against his recall to prison following breaches of his release conditions, which include contacting a woman he was not meant to contact.

Wilson claims the extended supervision order granted at his release is unwarranted as there is little likelihood of his reoffending.

These claims have been rejected by the Court of Appeal and now the Supreme Court.
