She will reportedly “start a new life” after being released from prison.

Baby P’s mother has been freed from prison for the first time in 7 years.

Tracey Connelly, who is now 40, was found guilty of allowing her son’s death in 2007.

Her son Peter Connelly was subjected to months of abuse before his untimely passing.

It is believed the young boy suffered over 50 injuries within an 8-month period.

He suffered a broken back and broken ribs, as well as gashes to his head.

Ms. Connelly, her partner Steven Barker and his brother Jason Owen were all found guilty of allowing or causing the death of a child.

According to The Sun, she was released from prison in Durham on Wednesday night. She has since been moved to a secret bail hostel so she can “begin a new life”.

Both the Government and members of her family protested against Connelly’s release.

However, the bid was dismissed.

Connelly may no longer be in prison, but her release comes with extremely strict conditions.

Probation chiefs will now monitor her every move.

She will also be sent straight back to prison if she breaks her release terms.

Before her release, Dominic Raab asked the judge to overturn her release. However, the judge dismissed his request.

Connelly’s own family also said she shouldn’t be released from prison, but their concerns were ignored.

A member of her family recently told The Sun: “When will these people learn evil is evil?”

They told the publication, “Connelly gets chance after chance. She’s fooled them before and fooled them again.”
