John Worboys: Black cab rapist’s release put on hold after victims won the first step in a legal challenge

The release of black cab rapist John Worboys from prison has been put on hold after victims won the first step in a legal challenge.

Lawyer Harriet Wistrich said an “urgent application” had been made to the High Court on behalf of two of his victims for a stay of his release pending a further permission hearing.

She said: “Update – we have been granted a stay on his release until an oral application between February 6-8.”

The Parole Board provoked fury this month when it directed Worboys’ release after a decade in prison.

He was jailed indefinitely in 2009, with a minimum term of eight years, for drugging and sexually assaulting women passengers.

Worboys was convicted of 19 offences against 12 victims, but has been linked to more than 100 complaints in total.

His convictions included one count of rape, five sexual assaults, one attempted sexual assault, and 12 of administering a substance with intent.

Jill Meagher’s husband in objection to rapist release

The husband of the murdered Irishwoman Jill Meagher has warned that Australia’s practice of releasing violent rapists on parole will result in more women being attacked.

Ms Meagher, 29, who was born in Drogheda, was raped and strangled by Adrian Bayley as she walked home from a bar in September 2012. The Victoria coroner ruled in 2016 that her death was preventable as Bayley, who had rape convictions back to the 1990s, should have had his parole revoked after he was involved in an assault in the months before the murder.

Tom Meagher, from Dublin, urged the Australian authorities to learn from the case after a petition aimed at preventing the parole of another rapist was unsuccessful. The parole authority has ruled that Simon Monteiro…

State and county officials challenge plans to release serial rapist Thomas Duvall

State and county officials are challenging the proposed release of serial rapist Thomas R. Duvall, one of the most violent sex offenders in state history, from the Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP).

In court filings this week, state Human Services Commissioner Emily Piper and Hennepin County prosecutors argued that Duvall’s conditional release, recommended by MSOP staff and approved by a state judicial panel, was opposed by all the expert evaluators “not employed by the MSOP” who offered testimony in the case. This includes a court-appointed psychologist, Dr. James Alsdurf, who described Duvall as a “sexual sadist” still fixated on violent sexual thoughts in court testimony last spring.

The petitions could delay or derail plans to release Duvall, 62, who has been confined at the MSOP since 1991 for a series of brutal rapes of teenage girls in the 1970s and 1980s and who has admitted to assaulting more than

DONATIONS to challenge the early release of depraved ‘Black Cab rapist’ John Worboys have doubled to £40,000 in just 24 hours as fury mounts.

Cops believe Worboys could have attacked up to 102 people while lawyers believe there could be 105 victims.

But Justice Secretary David Gauke yesterday ruled out the Government launching a judicial review on the advice of lawyers.
