No housing crisis for sex offenders

offend1

This looks like a nice place to live. It has stunning views, and is a well maintained modern house.

You even get lovely views from the bathroom.

I’m told (by a local resident) that this is the where Corrections have put up the child sex offender in Lower Hutt.

I’m not saying ex-prisoners must be put up in slums. But there is a middle ground between that and putting them up in a house that would be well above the median for the city. The cost to the taxpayers would be immense.

Note that of the many photos available of the house have used the ones which make it hardest to identify the house externally. I’m sure some people can reverse engineer from the photos to work out the house so I considered not using any photos. But the reality is that the exact address is already known by pretty much every local person in the area, so I decided to use a couple of photos to illustrate. Do not post anything in the comments about exactly where the house may be, if you know.
