Never again will Sheffield United be able to call themselves a family club with the news that they are about to allow Ched Evans back into the club.
It is true that all people deserve a chance to atone for their mistakes and to be rehabilitated into society but should it be in such a high-profile occupation?
The poor victim, who is regularly forgotten in all this, is having to live her life away from her parents and friends under a different name.
What sort of life is she leading with the whole affair regularly being thrust in front of her?
Many people have stated that if Evans was a bricklayer, road sweeper, joiner etc, they would be welcomed back but I can assure you that this is not true.
The workers in any trade would not welcome a rapist back to his former employment, he would probably have to move to another area to obtain employment and lie about his past.
I know from past experience how hard it is to obtain a job after coming out of prison.
Yes, I’ve been inside for my troubles but I must mention not for sex or violence and I’m not proud of it.
I was out of work for around five years and there’s no way my previous employer would have welcomed me back.
Because of this I had to lie to get a job but it was always in your mind that someone would walk through the door and divulge your secret.
I know many of your readers will have read the account of ‘truth’ on the Evans website but I ask you to read the full transcript of the trial and you will read some of the most disgusting behaviour that no family paper could print.
If you do I then ask, guilty or not guilty, is this the kind of person who should be hero worshipped?
