& # 39; Like something from a horror movie & # 39 ;: the impending conditional release of Murderer delayed for years due to & # 39; corrupt and obscene & # 39; letters he wrote to a female prison worker – causing her mental illness to fail
- Wayne Patrick Clancy, 59, killed his former girlfriend's boyfriend in 1992
- Three months after his conditional release, he raped an elderly woman with intellectual disabilities, 65
- As the conditional release approached, he wrote three obscene letters for a female officer
- She read one of the letters, suffered a nervous breakdown, and left her job
The upcoming release of a murderer has been delayed for years after he & # 39; corrupted & # 39; and & # 39; obscene & # 39; sent letters to a female prison worker who had experienced a mental breakdown after reading.
Wayne Patrick Clancy, 59, who had spent most of his life behind bars after being institutionalized from the age of three, was almost conditional release but sentenced to another three and a half years for his last crime.
He had served a maximum of 12 years in prison after killing his ex-girlfriend & # 39; s boyfriend in 1992.
Three months after being released on release for that crime, in February 2003, Clancy raped a 64-year-old woman with intellectual disabilities. He returned to prison.
Clancy wrote three corrupt letters to the prison worker, and after finding and reading one, she had a nervous breakdown and left her job in prison.

During the sentence at the Court of Ballarat, magistrate Gregory Robinson described the letters that Clancy sent to the female prison officer as something of a horror film.
& # 39; She has dedicated her life to helping men as the accused and she gets these horrible letters & # 39 ;, Robinson said as reported by The Ararat advertiser.
& # 39; It could be more serious – but nevertheless they are sinister, they are scary and something they will never forget for the rest of her life, and I don't think I'll do it either.

His defense lawyer told the court that his client was leading a restless life since he was three in and out of boys' homes and prisons.
Clancy was improperly imprisoned in the infamous J Ward, part of the Ararat Lunatic Asylum for the criminally insane, for 10 years without a sentence when he was 13 years old.
The J Ward housed the most dangerous and corrupt men in the state and the conditions in the ward were horrible.
The only way he could get out of J Ward was to escape.

& # 39; On behalf of the community and the victim, I condemn your behavior, and without hesitation, I put that punishment on the basis that you are a serious sex offender and pose a threat to the community. & # 39;
Clancy pleaded guilty to three counts of threatening a sexual offense and he was sentenced to an additional three and a half years in prison.
