A driver who left baby Cerys Edwards brain damaged and paralysed has been released from prison six months into his 21-month sentence.
The early parole sparked fury from the victim’s mother Tracey, who branded the decision to free 21-year-old Antonio Boparan Singh “an insult”.
The millionaires’ son is back home under an electronic tagging scheme and subject of a 7pm-7am curfew. He was released early because he is not regarded a “dangerous offender”.
The heir to an estimated £130 million fortune was speeding on the wrong side of the road in a powerful Range Rover Sport when he smashed head on into the family car in Streetly Lane, Sutton Coldfield.
Cerys was ripped out of her baby seat when the 4x4 collided as it overtook at more than 70mph in a 30mph zone in November 2006. The crash left Cerys paralysed, brain damaged and unable to breathe without a ventilator.
Cerys, three next month, only returned to Birmingham weeks ago to live in rented accommodation while cash is found to house the family and her full-time nurses.
Mum Tracey, who quit her job to care for her full-time, said: “It’s an insult to Cerys, that the person who caused this was only made to serve six months of the sentence. Cerys has been institutionalised for two years and now is in rented accommodation away from us while we try to find a home.
“My daughter was given a life sentence while he can return to his comfortable life.”
The family started a petition demanding tougher sentences for dangerous drivers who cause catastrophic injuries.
The Boparan family is still in negotiations with Mr and Mrs Edwards to give a cash sum independent of insurance or compensation payments.
The family owns West Bromwich-chicken suppliers Boparan Holdings and featured at No.49 in the Sunday Times Rich List with an estimated £130 million fortune.
A spokesman for the family said Boparan would be raising cash for Cerys now he is out of prison, and added that he plans to raise awareness about dangerous driving.
