Tracey Connelly has six stringent conditions on her release, which she must comply with or be thrown behind bars for allowing or causing the death of her 17-month-old son Peter
Baby P’s mother has to abide by strict conditions as she is released with a license – rules she broke the last time she was released and saw her put back behind bars.
Tracey Connelly, now 40, shocked the world with her horrific crimes against her 17-month-old son Peter, which were revealed during their court hearing.
She was jailed at the Old Bailey in 2009 for causing or allowing the death of little Peter at their home in Tottenham, north London, on 3 August 2007.
Peter Connelly, known publicly as Baby P, had sustained more than 50 injuries over a period of eight months at the hands of her partner Steven Barker and his pedophile brother Jason Owen.
This is despite the fact that the young person was on the risk register and received 60 visits from social workers, police officers and health professionals over the same period.
Now Connelly has received the license release for the second time.
She was released in 2013 but was jailed again two years later after violating the terms of her parole by selling indecent photos of herself online.
It was reported last year that Connelly may have to agree to take a lie detector test to prove she won’t reoffend.
After previous reviews in 2015 and 2017, the parole board reviewed her case for a third time in 2019 and refused to either release her or transfer her to an open prison.
In 2020, she lost an appeal against the parole board’s recent decision not to parole her.
Today the parole board approved her release – again on license – and on six strict conditions:
1. Stay at their home address, behave well, and show up for supervisory appointments
2. Wear an electronic tag and show all relationships
3. Do not approach victims or children
4. Have internet and mobile phone usage monitored
5. Do you have a curfew
6. Continue working to address defined risk areas in the community
The details of her curfew and when she has to stay at home in between have not been released.
A summary of the decision, released today and seen by the Mirror, reads: “At the time of her offence, these risk factors included Ms Connelly not managing certain aspects of her personality, being quick to form relationships, prioritizing those relationships above all else, and thinking about sex a lot and using it Sex to feel better.
“The panel also considered Ms. Connelly’s inability to control extreme emotions, her lifestyle, decision-making, low self-esteem, manipulative behavior, dishonesty, a lack of victim empathy, and difficulty dealing with victim’s feelings of anger.”
Prior to her initial release, the report said: “Prior to her release, Ms Connelly had worked with a psychologist to address her abusive behavior.
“The professional evaluation at the time deemed this effective and Ms Connelly was released on the instructions of the parole board.
After being jailed for the second time, the report adds: “Further professional assessment concluded that the work Ms Connelly had done prior to her release was insufficient to reduce her level of risk.”
It continued: “The panel heard that Ms Connelly had now spent over two and a half years in the regime and had done a good job.
“Evidence was presented that she was utilizing her new skills and was now able to work openly and honestly with professionals.
“In her long time in the regime, there were few concerns.
“Witnesses supported Ms Connelly’s release and the Secretary of State’s representative confirmed that the recommendation was accepted.”
