Black cab rapist is set to be released from prison after 8 years,

Post by Syl on Fri Jan 05, 2018 3:45 pm

First topic message reminder :

Black cab rapist John Worboys will be freed by the end of the month in a move that has provoked fury among victims' groups and led to calls for reform of the parole system.

John Worboys is feared to have attacked up to 200 women during a horrific spree of sex attacks he carried out on women he drugged in his cab.
Despite getting a sentence which could have seen him locked up for life, he has been freed just eight years in after a controversial parole panel decision he is no longer a danger to women.

The ruling has led to widespread claims of 'soft justice' and fears his victims, some of whom only found out about his release through radio news, are being let down by the system.

It emerged today that Worboys will be moved straight from a high-security jail into a bail hostel where he will be monitored by the end of the month.

 Worboys was jailed in 2009 for raping and sexually assaulting young women in his black cab.
Police suspect the 60-year-old, who was labelled a 'repetitive, predatory sexual offender' in a probation report, may have abused as many as 200 women.

Karen Ingala Smith, chief executive of women's sexual and domestic violence charity, Nia, said: 'The police believe that Worboys may have raped more than 100 women, others think this is a conservative estimate.
'He's served nine years and nine months, that's just over a month per rape victim. How can we say justice has been served?

Gibberish

Just because there was not enough evidence, does not mean there was no evidence, only that it has not come to light.

What a twat you are

I quite agree.
And as you know, my ex is a black taxi driver and the rumours that circulated (and I know they're just rumours) were that there were many more than just one.

Just asked my OH ...he was a black cab driver for 40 years in Manchester, he said he never heard any gossip about licenced black cab drivers abusing women.
Private hire was a different matter.

I didn't mean black cab drivers in general Syl. I meant this one in particular.

He got life, how is 8 years life, its appalling and a kick in the teeth for his victims.
The so called M25 rapist is the latest one to be considered for release Mags.

He received 7 life sentences....he has served less than 14 years, which means a life sentence in his case is TWO years.
His victims ranged from 10 years old.


Bloody raping kids, he should never be released, he will always be a paedophile. He could start again.

Him and Warboys should die in prison.

I agree Mags.

Parole boards who grant early release to people like this should be made to make their reasons public.
God knows how they can equate a life sentence to a pathetic 2 years.

All the victims of these monsters will be trying to get on with their lives, to probably not be afraid, and now they're coming out of prison.

Makes a complete mockery of parole boards. How in heaven's name can the board make this right. Bet they pretended they were sorry, saying sorry goes a long way with the board's, they need locking up too.

From the GOV.UK website.

Listing their responsibilities.....

We carry out risk assessments on prisoners in England and Wales according to provisions in the Criminal Justice Act 1991 and the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997. Our main responsibility is to protect the public.
