Obsessive stalker due for release
New Zealand's most notorious stalker has become obsessed with one of his prison therapists, forcing Corrections to extend his no-go zone when he is released from prison tomorrow.
Glenn Green, 43, aka Glenn Corleone, Goldberg, Carlionne, Casellano and Holden, was sentenced to 30 months in 2012 for two counts of criminal harassment - offending he began three weeks after getting out of prison in 2011.
He has been held to the very end of his sentence but he has to be released tomorrow, despite materials found in his cell last month indicating he is "planning" his next victim.
Corrections applied for release conditions that he be monitored by GPS tracker.
He was given a 9pm curfew and ordered to not go north of Onehunga or east of State Highway One.
Corrections applied this week to extend Green's banned areas to include Hamilton and Ngaruawahia, the workplaces of a "female health professional" who treated Green in prison.
The parole Board said two independent sources had indicated Green was obsessed with the health care worker and he was aware of her business address.
He intended to "visit" her once released, the Board said.
The board said the health worker fitted the profile of green's previous victims and she was "consistent with photographs of attractive, young, adult blonde females that were recently found in his possession".
Green told the Board the report was "fabricated" and he had no idea who the woman was.
The Parole Board previously said Green had an "appalling" history of over 200 convictions, many for breaching protection orders, harassment, intimidation, threats, and abuse of the telephone.
He had not had any psychological treatment during his sentence and Corrections had forwarded a "lengthy" document outlining their concerns.
Corrections previously said documents had been found that indicated Green was planning activities that "again raise concerns for potential victims of his harassing type behaviour".
"On any measure the risks relating to Mr Green's release are high. He poses a significant threat to public safety."
The Parole Board said it could only impose conditions for six months after Green's release.
It varied his release condition to include not entering the townships of Hamilton or Ngaruawahia.
