VANCOUVER -- Newly released documents reveal the parole board has been keeping a tight rein on the man known as the balaclava rapist since he was granted day parole last year. Larry Takahashi is serving three life sentences after pleading guilty to 14 charges involving 23 victims

Larry Takahashi , one of Canada’s most notorious rapists , has been granted day parole in the Vancouver area. Takahashi , dubbed the ‘ Balaclava Rapist ’, was known for breaking into homes and sexually assaulting women while wearing a ski mask.

He was originally charged with 70 sexual offences but pleaded guilty to 14 as part of a plea bargain.

Parole begins

Takahashi, now 65, was granted day parole in B.C. last year after serving 32 years in prison. He lives in a residential facility somewhere in Metro Vancouver.

The board said he didn't leave the centre for more than a month after his initial parole because of the media attention, only leaving escorted for a few hours at a time.

August's decision noted that he's participated in voluntary counselling sessions, risk assessments and sex offender programming. 

Takahashi's risk is being "actively managed," it said.

Under his parole conditions, Takahashi isn't allowed to consume alcohol or drugs, access pornography or use a computer without supervision. He's also under a curfew, is subject to electronic monitoring and can't leave the city he lives in unless he's pre-approved for a trip.

The board has also ordered him to report any kind of relationship with a woman — sexual or not — to his parole supervisor.

"You have brutalized women," read the board's decision. "Your movements and associations with women must be restricted and strictly monitored in order to prevent any re-offence."

The Correctional Service of Canada recommended the board authorize overnight privileges, but it declined, saying Takahashi hasn't "yet developed the stability or supports to be granted" such permission.
