BRITAIN’S worst female paedo Vanessa George who abused dozens of kids has been released from jail after just ten years behind bars – sparking outrage from her victims’ families.
The 49-year-old was jailed in 2009 for abusing at least 30 children in her care at Little Ted’s nursery in Plymouth.
During the probe child protection officers visited 180 children thought to have had contact with George, who admitted taking up to eight pictures a day while on duty.
Earlier this month we told how she was due to be released under strict conditions, with it emerging today through the Victoria Derbyshire Show she has been freed.
One dad, who still doesn’t know whether his young daughter was abused as George refused to name all of her victims, slammed the decision.
The parent, who we are not naming, had begged officials not to free George at the parole hearing.
He told The Sun Online: “If I see her I will kill her, all bets off. Even if my daughter wasn’t [one of the ones abused].
“I was disgusted [by the verdict], The whole process from start to finish – even up to today – has been a mess.
“She should never be released. We had no sleep at all last night.”
Another said today: “Disgusted. I knew this was coming but to find out on the day it’s already happened has made it worse. Again no consideration for the victims.”
‘KEEP HER IN JAIL’
MP Luke Pollard, who helped them, said he had been told she would be out this month.
He said she should stay in jail until her victims were 18 and should not be let out until she agrees to name them.
He also called for parents of young children who have been sexually abused to be treated as victims in the criminal justice system.
Mr Pollard said: “The families understand that Vanessa George is under very, very strict conditions, but for them it is the fear of what happens if she breaks them.
George, who worked in Plymouth, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault by penetration and two counts of sexual assault by touching.
She also admitted making, possessing and distributing indecent images.
She will face “extensive and robust” licence conditions on her release, including residing at a location as directed by her supervising officer and bans on owning or using any electronic device which has access to the internet.
SICK PAEDO RING
Special needs coordinator Vanessa George took pictures on her phone of her abusing babies and toddlers at a nursery in Plymouth.
She was jailed in 2009 for a minimum of seven years.
Her trial heard she sent pictures to paedophile Colin Blanchard after meeting him on Facebook.
When arrested she did little to help identify the victims.
Blanchard, of Rochdale, said to be the “hub of the paedophile wheel”, was later jailed for a minimum of nine years.
He traded the photos to members of a paedophile ring, including prostitute Angela Allen, of Nottingham, who was jailed for at least five years.
In an open letter to the people of Plymouth, chief probation officer Sonia Crozier said: “I share the disgust at the crimes committed by Vanessa George and I understand why the prospect of her release is so worrying to so many people, particularly in Plymouth where memories of her abuse are still vivid and frightening.
“The fact she so callously exploited a position of trust to commit these crimes makes them all the more horrifying.
“She will also never be allowed to work with children again and will be on the sex offenders’ register for the rest of her life.
“She is subject to a number of conditions, including not to have unsupervised contact with any children whatsoever.
“If she breaches any of these conditions or if her probation officer thinks there is an increasing chance she might re-offend – she can be immediately recalled to prison.”
Child protection officers visited 180 children thought to have had contact with George, who admitted taking up to eight pictures a day while on duty.
Staff at Little Ted’s, George’s former place of work and base for the sick abuse, said they felt “betrayed” by her actions.
One former colleague of George said that “a lifetime of childcare had been ruined by Vanessa’s actions”.
In her letter, Ms Crozier said 21 families had taken up an offer of support in the wake of George’s crimes.
Sadly, on your watch serial child abuser Vanessa George is being released early and many of her victims only found out on Facebook because the authorities didn’t tell them about their plan to release her. https://t.co/avh9SiF9VC
