49-year-old Vanessa George, known as the ‘worst female pedophile’ will be released from jail after she managed to convince a parole board that she is not a ‘significant risk’ to children anymore.
The former nursery worker was jailed in 2009 for a minimum of seven years after taking more than 60 photos of herself harming toddlers and babies at the Little Ted’s nursery.
George was said to have ‘plumbed new depths of depravity’ by abusing kids in the facility. She was refused parole in 2017 after serving seven years.
However, the Parole Board said George should now be released after a recent review. Her release will cause outrage among parents of the abused children and her ex-husband admitted he was flabbergasted.
George was divorced by her husband Andrew and publicly disowned by her two daughters while in jail. She has reverted to her maiden name Vanessa Marks.
Neither her daughters nor Andrew knew of her secret life. They fear she still poses a significant risk to children.
He claimed he was a ‘broken man,’ adding: “I am staggered. I just don’t know what to say.
“While she’ll be returned to society, possibly with a new look and identity, I face a life sentence knowing that for me this nightmare will never disappear.
“Vanessa is manipulative and she’s like the leopard which never changes its spots. She should have stayed locked up.”
The announcement of her release was met with horror and fury within the community of Devon, with many saying she should never have been considered for release.
“I hope someone just as caring as her finds her and takes care of her with the same she took care of those families precious little ones,” said one local resident Donna Garlick.
Sarah Gallagher wrote: “Should never ever be freed. She has never given the names of the innocents she abused so how can they say she’s not a danger.
“The judge even said she should have an indeterminate sentence, absolute disgrace her even being considered.
Another resident, Lynn Barnes, said: “She should have been kept locked up, she has not given one thought to the families who have no idea whether their children were abused. Until that was disclosed parole board should not have even considered letting her out.”
