Darryl Laycock was released from Prison in March 2011. When released on licence he was deemed a very high risk of harm to known adults, so he was a subjected to be MAPPA 3 Tier 4 nominal, which is the highest an offender can be. This status came with very stringent conditions for him to abide by. This was done to reduce his risk of harm to others and also reduce the risk to himself.
Under MAPPA conditions Darryl was placed in an approved premises (hostel) for 8 months. He wasn’t allowed in his home town & his movement was restricted. He wasn’t allowed to contact past associates. The ever-present risk on his life was a cause of concern to the authorities so they deemed it too dangerous to be in public with his children so it was attached to his licence conditions.
Prior to his release he made a promise to his immediate family members that he would refrain from committing any crime again. Darryl spent more than 12 years in custody. He begun offending from his early teens however as he got older the offences became more serious. Throughout the time he was criminal minded he lost over 30 friends and family to violence. Darryl himself has survived being shot on 3 occasions and being stabbed 7 times.
