The woman whose phone calls with the Stewart Murray Wilson landed him back in prison last month says she's a relative of two of his victims.
But the woman, who told One News she's been a penpal of Wilson's for years, said it wasn't her job to pass judgment on the man dubbed the Beast of Blenheim.
She admitted sending Wilson a Christmas present in prison and had taken several calls from him since his release.
Wilson was jailed for 21 years in 1996 after being convicted of 22 sex charges against women and children between 1971 and 1994.
Police visited the woman the day after one of his phone calls in late February, and told her that Wilson had been grooming her.
''I don't think he was going to harm me, but I think he wanted to have a contact with a female. I had no intentions of contacting any of his victims.''
They had been swapping letters for years, she said.
''It was very peaceful letters. There was no bad language or anything involved.
''It's not my job to the judge. It's God's job.''
He should not have been recalled to prison, she said.
''That's a waste of taxpayers' money and very vindictive and very nasty.''
Wilson was back behind bars at Whanganui Prison on February 21, after the Department of Corrections successfully applied to the Parole Board for an interim recall.
The next day he entered a not guilty plea at the Whanganui District Court.
Judge David Cameron remanded him in custody until May 13 where he will face a defended hearing. A status hearing into Wilson's alleged breach will take place on May 2, and will likely be done by telephone or video conference.
