A sex offender convicted of the rape of a baby will appear in the Christchurch District Court on Monday in relation to a breach of his release conditions.

Lloyd McIntosh, who was jailed for offences including the rape of a 23-month-old baby and a child aged six, was released in 2005 into the grounds of Christchurch Men's prison.

He has been heavily supervised since then, and his release conditions include being accompanied in public and a ban on internet use.

He cannot have contact with anyone aged under 16 unless supervised, get a job without written consent of the probation officer, or have contact with victims.

Corrections told Radio New Zealand the breach relates to the monitoring included in his release conditions, and not to any sexual reoffending.

His court appearance will be on the same day as a hearing of an injunction sought by Whanganui District Council against the release of Wilson to a house in the grounds of Whanganui prison.

More than 100 high-risk paedophiles released from prison are on an extended supervision scheme.
