Should Wales footballer Ched Evans play again after rape?

Former Wales and Sheffield United footballer Ched Evans is due to be released from jail after his conviction for rape.

He will serve the remainder of his five year sentence on licence having spent two and a half years behind bars.

Anticipation of his release has sparked an online petition campaigning for his former club Sheffield United not to re-employ him.

So should he be allowed to continue to play professional football?

Fiona Elvines, of charity Rape Crisis in south London and Juliet Lyon director of the Prison Reform Trust, discuss the complications of the case.
