Thumbs down Convicted Child Killer Colin Pitchfork to be Released by Parole board

Quote:
A man who killed two schoolgirls is to be released from prison.
Colin Pitchfork has served 33 years in jail for raping and murdering 15-year-olds Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth in the 1980s.
Last month the Parole Board said it was safe to release the 61-year-old, who was the first murderer to be convicted using DNA evidence.
This led to a challenge by Justice Secretary Robert Buckland which has now been "refused" by a judge-led review.

Strict licence conditions:

The justice secretary intervened on the grounds the decision to free Pitchfork was "irrational" because the Parole Board panel "failed to give sufficient reasons" as to why it agreed with the evidence provided by professional witnesses.

Judge Michael Topolski QC, who reviewed the decision for the Parole Board, said he did not consider it "irrational" and concluded the "application for reconsideration is refused".

He added: "This was and remains a case of considerable seriousness, complexity and notoriety. The terrible consequences of the brutal rapes and murders of two innocent girls will forever darken the lives of the families concerned."
Pitchfork's release will be subject to strict licence conditions.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: "We are disappointed with this outcome given we felt there were grounds for the decision to be reconsidered, but respect the independent judge's decision.

"Our sympathies remain with the families of Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth but they can be reassured that Pitchfork will be subject to close probation supervision for life and faces an immediate return to prison if he fails to comply with his licence conditions.

"The Lord Chancellor has launched a Root and Branch review of the parole system, which will report back later this year, and we are changing the law so that child murderers such as Pitchfork face life in prison without the possibility of parole as the default sentence."
Disgusting decision.

Re: Convicted Child Killer Colin Pitchfork to be Released by Parole board

He was sentenced by the court and has served his time, he is now considered not to be a threat by the parole board, so that as they say is that, had he been sentenced today he would serve a whole of life term, but you can't change the rules once he has served his time.
he won't find life easy out of prison as the public will just hound him where ever he goes.

He's not going to find modern life easy to adjust to either.

When he went to prison there were only 4 TV channels, no Internet, mobiles etc.

Now everything is run by computer & there is a lot more traffic.

Unfortunately, his time served was not what it should have been in any normal circumstances, the law in this country for those murderous b astards is so wrong IMO it beggar's belief, the judge setting him on parole should be jailed for incompetence, absolutely unbelievable.

I imagine he was [impartially] following the law, and taking into account advice.

There was no judge, it was a parole panel and the parole panel were following the law, it's not them that's the ass it's the law

Re: Convicted Child Killer Colin Pitchfork to be Released by Parole board

If someone murdered over a crime of passion, a fit of pique or you were in a gang or criminal fraternity etc, you know what I mean. I believe there is a chance of rehabilitation.

But this guy raped two “children” and then murdered them.

I don’t think you should ever see the outside of a prison cell for that kind of crime.

There’s lots of casual low level offenders in prison taking up time and resources that are not really a danger to society and for who prison does not help them or us and then there’s people like him the world is a better place with him locked away.

I don’t believe in the death penalty but for the real evil *******s, they should stay locked up.

Itís beggars belief this evil prick wants to be freed. Itís like Moors Murderer, Myra Hindley wanting her freedom in the 90ís, she would have been lynched the day she was freed. Thankfully, she died of cancer, but I remember at the time there was a little campaign to free her claiming she was a reformed character. I think regardless of how one changes their character, they canít ever change their evil deeds of the past.

This Pitchfork scumbag, took his young baby son along with him and left him in the car during one of the murders. He then coerced a colleague to take a DNA test, he was eventually caught when 5,000 men in his area, had to do a DNA test.

Re: Convicted Child Killer Colin Pitchfork to be Released by Parole board

In the UK, we do concurrent sentences, but for these type of crimes it should be consecutive


That way, people like him would do a minimum 60+ years
