Capill out of Jail

Convicted kiddie fiddler Graham Capill is out of jail.

Disgraced politician and ex-police prosecutor Graham Capill is free after more than six years behind bars for child sex offences.

The Department of Corrections yesterday confirmed the former Christian Heritage party leader had been released from jail nearly three years early.

“Mr Capill will be managed according to the standard and special conditions of his parole order set by the New Zealand Parole Board,” Community Probation Services area manager Nick Scott said.

Last month, the Parole Board granted parole to the Christchurch-based church minister and morals campaigner to an undisclosed residence.

He had been declined five times previously.

Capill, 52, was sentenced to nine years jail in July 2005 after admitting sex crimes against three young girls over a 12-year period, starting in 1990, the year after he became party leader.

He was paroled with seven special conditions, including being banned from contact with children aged 16 years old or younger unless under approved supervision.

We can know who this man is because the judge in his trial sensibly removed name suppression from him. We can also know if Graham Capill breaks his?parole?conditions because we can know it was him. Far too many people like him are released into the community still hidden by name suppression and because of that the general public can not know about who their new neighbour is.
