Prolific stalker re-arrested
The country's most notorious stalker allegedly breached his release conditions six times in the 12 days after he was released from prison.
Glenn Green, 43, aka Glenn Corleone, Goldberg, Carlionne, Casellano and Holden, was imprisoned for 30 months in 2012 for two counts of criminal harassment. His offending began three weeks after getting out of prison in 2011.
Green targeted three Christchurch women, including TVNZ reporter Charlotte Bellis, with messages from a Glenn Castellano proposing a relationship or meeting.
He was held to the end of his sentence and released on June 4 this year, but was rearrested for allegedly breaching his release conditions just 12 days later.
Police allege he breached his conditions six times in the period he was free - five times by not telling his probation office he had attempted to form relationships with women through unsolicited text messages and letters and once by possessing gang regalia.
Green was denied bail in the District Court and the Justice Mark Woolford confirmed that decision on appeal today.
Green will remain in custody until his judge-alone trial in the Manukau District Court.
Green's release conditions featured a 9pm curfew and an order that he not go north of Onehunga or east of State Highway 1.
Just before his release, the Parole Board had extended Green's banned areas to include the workplaces of a "female health professional" who had treated Green in prison.
The Parole Board said two independent sources had indicated Green was obsessed with her and was aware of her business address.
The board said the health worker fitted the profile of Green's previous victims. 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 more than 200 convictions.
