Speaking after the verdict, Mrs Ross's husband Michael, a hairdresser, described the defendant as a "low life".
He said: "I am serving a life sentence and my boys are serving a life sentence that means they will never see Jacqui.
It's strange. When an private sector employee or a manager makes a mistake or cuts a corner, and the result is the death of an employee or member of the public, Guardianistas are the first to call for heads to roll, courts to convene, and corporate manslaughter charges to be brought.
How come that doesn't apply to the deaths of innocents killed by the decisions of probation officers ? After all, I'd reckon that more people are killed each year by early release prisoners than died in the Hatfield train crash.
He had been on an all-night drinking session to celebrate his release from prison after serving just under two years of a four-and-a-half-year sentence for attempted armed robbery and possession of an imitation firearm.
A spokeswoman for the Probation Service said they were satisfied the supervision of Redfern-Edwards following his release had been of a "high standard".
She added: "He had committed previous acts of violence and because of this his supervision requirements were stringent.
"Whilst this gave cause for concern, there was nothing to suggest he would carry out an offence of this gravity."
So three days after release he's drinking all night then attempting a sexual assault. Sir, I don't see any "supervision".
If that's a "high standard" and "stringent supervision" what would they consider a low standard to be ?
UPDATE - once a teacher or school governor seeing a double-barreled name like Ben Redfern-Edwards would think 'posh kid' or possibly 'pretentious mum'.
These days you think 'uh-oh - trouble'. Ben's daddy didn't quite love him enough to marry his mother, but you can't say he wasn't ready to help him out.
His father Paul Edwards, who has already been convicted of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and assisting an offender, helped him dispose of his clothes - which were covered in mud and blood - and then drove him away from the house.
