Zara Aleena’s killer Jordan McSweeney wrongly assessed as medium risk

A man with a history of violence was able to sexually assault and murder a law graduate after mistakes were made by probation staff, a report has found.Jordan McSweeney, 29, attacked Zara Aleena in June 2022, nine days after his release on licence from prison.A report by chief inspector of probation, Justin Russell, released on Tuesday, outlined how McSweeney was not treated as a high-risk offender or recalled to prison as quickly as he should have been.Women’s safety campaigners have said that a lack of funding is partly to blame for the litany of errors which left McSweeney “free” to kill the 35-year-old last year, just nine days after he was released from jail.
