Victims fear as ex-priest Ridsdale nears parole
May 30, 2013
Victims of serial child rapist Gerald Ridsdale have been told the former Catholic priest could be freed from prison within a month.
Ridsdale, 79, who abused dozens of children over three decades from the 1960s, was sentenced in 2006 to a maximum of 13 years, a term that would expire in 2019. He was already serving a maximum 18-year term from 1994.
Victims have recently been contacted by the Adult Parole Board and informed that the paedophile could be released as soon as June 29, sparking fears that he is likely to reoffend.
