Ricky Preddie was first released in September 2010, but recalled to custody in March 2011 after returning to Peckham from his west London bail hostel in breach of his licence conditions.
Then in October 2011 he beat up another prisoner, but a Parole Board hearing on December 23 decided he should be released on January 25, 2012.
He lasted just 16 days before being taken back to prison for again violating his parole by going to areas he was banned from and visiting friends from his old gang.
He was let out in July 2012, which means he has lasted just five months on early release before being hauled before the authorities again for handling stolen goods.
He was released after serving out every day of his eight-year sentence in 2013. Although the eight-year jail term was handed down in 2006, he had already served time behind bars on remand.And what was the latest sentence?
Ricky Preddie, 32, also known as Ricky Johnson, is back behind bars after pleading guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified, failing to stop, and driving without insurance at Harrow Crown Court on Thursday.How long before he's out again? Taking bets now!
