Who is Jon Venables? Where is he now? Age, Parents, Wife. The Father of Jon Venables’ victim’s pleadings to keep his son behind bars, Jon will have a parole hearing in the coming weeks.
The monster, 40, has a “high possibility” of escaping due to his “good” progress inside, according to sources.
James Bulger, a two-year-old victim, passed away in February 1993.
“If Venables is walking around as a free man as we mark 30 years of losing our beautiful boy, it would be the ultimate betrayal.”His dad Ralph told The Sun:
Last night, he encouraged Dominic Raab, the justice secretary, to oppose any potential release.
“Mr Raab has pledged to crack down on the most dangerous criminals in this country.He said:
“Venables should be top of that list and never see daylight again.”
His ex-wife, Denise Fergus, the mother of James, has echoed his pleadings.
Venables was sent back to jail a second time in 2017 for keeping roughly 1,200 pictures of child abuse.
He’s been told to prepare for a date in “early 2023.”
The Sun previously reported on how reports, which included the opinions of prison guards, psychiatrists, and even Venables himself, had been compiled to build a highly sensitive dossier.
Currently, the Parole Board is reviewing that matter.
It must first choose whether to conduct a thorough oral hearing and interview witnesses or simply review the documents in front of them to make their decision.
According to sources, Venables’ reputation and history of repeat offenses make an oral hearing in this instance a “racing certainty.”
He will be given the option to speak in front of the panel.
