Therese Speaks Out on Sex Offenders Being Housed in Hollesley

Therese has contacted the Prisons Minister outlining concerns from local residents after the Prison Service confirmed thatHollesley Bay is to be among several open prisons which will be used to accommodate sex offenders.

In her letter to Rory Stewart, Therese asks what assessment has been made on the impact of the local community and whether previous absconding levels have been taken into consideration.

Therese said: "I recognise that about 18% of all prisoners are in jail for sexual offences and as prisoners approach their release date they need to be fully prepared for life on the outside. Open Prisons are extremely important in helping facilitate prisoners transition back into normal life but they should not be an easy place for potentially dangerous criminals. Considering the very close proximity of the primary school, I fully understand local residents concerns – so I have written to the Prisons Minister and asked him to look again.
