|Keith John Williams|
Doncaster is just northeast of Rotherham. And we know how much they need another child-rapist in the Rotherham area.
Keith John Williams, 57, was serving five life sentences for carrying out sex attacks on his stepdaughter for six years.
His victim, who was eight when the paedophile first struck in the late-1970s, said she fears Williams will now track her down to carry out threats to harm her again.
The woman said: “He will come for me, he has made that clear.
“This is a monster who believes his own lies and his own rules. He is violent and evil. People need to be aware of how dangerous he is.”
She slammed the MoJ (Ministry of Justice) for the blunder that led to his release.
In November last year the Parole Board rejected ex-pub landlord Williams’s bid for freedom. It also ruled he should be moved from his open prison to a closed one.
Ordinarily, he would not have been eligible for parole again for a further two years.
But MoJ staff had mistakenly failed to show Williams’s legal team a victim statement written by the woman before the hearing.
The oversight meant there had to be a fresh hearing.
It took place in May – and the Parole Board suddenly decided Williams was fit to be released .
The distraught victim said: “I want proof that his behaviour has changed so drastically they can now say he is no longer a risk to the public, which is obviously what the board last time deemed him to be.”
She added that Williams had sent her cards and rung her up from jail, threatening “this isn’t over” and “see you soon!”.
The woman said: “They told me he was supposed to admit guilt and show remorse before he was even considered for parole but I don’t see how threatening your victim is showing remorse.”
She attempted suicide and has battled breakdowns after the years of sex abuse.
Williams would carry her down to the bar at the Derbyshire pub where they lived to rape her while her mum slept.
He would let other paedophiles molest her and the attacks were filmed by the sick gang.
On one occasion the victim remembers Williams’s friends brought along a girl aged six.
The pervert, likened by a judge to serial killer Fred West, was convicted and jailed 15 years ago.
The stepdaughter wrote the victim statement last year when she heard Williams, of Swadlincote, Derbys, had applied for parole.
This letter should have been passed to his lawyers by the Public Protection Casework Section, a branch of the MoJ’s executive agency the National Offender Management Service.
The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, complained and received a letter of apology admitting the blunder.
She said: “The letter says it’s their error that caused him to have a second hearing.
“They said that after the mistake they were sent on a training course. What use is that to me now?”
The MoJ said yesterday: “The release of life-sentenced prisoners is directed by the independent Parole Board once they are satisfied prisoners can be safely managed in the community.
“Sex offenders on licence are subject to a strict set of conditions such as exclusion zones, non-contact orders and sex offender treatment programmes, as well as being subject to the sex offenders’ register.
“If they fail to comply they can be recalled to prison.”
