John Worboys set for release from prison

John Worboys, one of the UK’s most high profile and prolific rapists, is set to be released from prison after serving around 10 years in custody. 

Worboys, 60, worked as a London cabbie and is believed to have carried out over 100 rapes and sexual assaults over a six year period between 2002 and 2008.

The driver would offer his victims Champagne spiked with drugs before assaulting them.

In 2009, after time spent on remand, he was convicted of 19 offences and ordered by Croydon Crown Court to serve a minimum of eight years in prison. 

A hearing was conducted two months ago in regards to his case, in which the Parole Board chose to sanction his release but only with "stringent" licence conditions attached.

Some of those conditions include no contact with any of his victims and also having to report to probation staff at least once a week. 

“We can confirm that a three-member panel of the Parole Board has directed the release of Mr John Worboys, following an oral hearing." Said a statement from Parole Board to the BBC.
