Convicted Rapist Ched Evans Reportedly To Train With Sheffield United
The Welsh international footballer, who spent two-and-a-half years in prison for rape, is to train with his former club this week, according to the BBC.
Footballer Ched Evans, 25, will train with Sheffield United this week, less than a month after leaving prison, according to the BBC, amid ongoing speculation that the club will offer him a permanent contract.
Evans was released from prison on 17 October, and said he wanted a "second chance" in an online video posted a few days later.
The video, in which he failed to apologise to his victim, was part of a campaign run by his family to repair his public reputation by arguing that he was wrongly convicted – although the player's aunt has said he deserved his conviction.
The father of Evans' victim has said that she has had to leave her hometown and change her identity twice.
