Alexander McCracken was released from prison just before Christmas and he has recently been rehoused in a one bedroom flat just yards away from a nursery, according to a report by The Sun. The 39-year-old ex-cop was arrested back in 2015 along with his then-girlfriend, Sharon Campbell. The pair reportedly admitted to sharing child abuse images online. At the same time, the couple had also plotted to conceive a child together so they could rape it. They even described themselves as a "no limits pedo couple, especially love newborn baby". 

McCracken had said at that time that he wanted to "breed a baby boy" to abuse "as soon as born", and would "deffo rape a little baby girl". At Ayr Sheriff Court he had admitted to three charges of possessing and distributing indecent images of children and was released in December 2018.

A source told the outlet that it wasn't right to allow McCracken to live so close to a nursery especially after he had admitted to committing such crimes. Tory Shadow Justice Secretary Liam Kerr stated that it came as a shock to know that someone "guilty of such a horrific crime is free to walk the streets at all".

"I don't understand why he was able to get flat by a school," a source told the outlet. "He's still denying what he's done. His family is still choosing to believe him. There's just no remorse or decency. He tried to get a job at a local meat factory but he didn't have much luck there." The source continued, "He even got thrown out of the gym last week as the owner found out who he was and didn't want to lose customers."

Prior to the arrest, McCracken had spent nine years with Strathclyde Police. He was exposed in 2010 as a swinger and a £400($500)-a-night bisexual prostitute. When police raided his home in Ayr they found that he possessed more than 500 child abuse and bestiality images.

He was then sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison along with his then-girlfriend. Of the 551 images, 33 were of the most depraved possible. According to police reports, most of the pictures were distributed online among pedophiles between July 2012 and October 2013. After the incident came to light, McCracken has been banned from several places. One of them includes the gym that he used to visit. "I have a young kid and I don't feel great with the knowledge he's just walking about," the source told the outlet.

The source continued, "I'm sure most parents would feel the same. He's banned from seeing Sharon but he's still out there without a care." McCracken and Campbell, who were given 10-year Sexual Offences Prevention Orders and put on the sex offenders register indefinitely, have one child from their previous relationships. Both of them were banned from seeing their children when they were sentenced. At the same time, they were banned from using any device that would give them access to the internet. 

Kerr noted that "Obviously individuals like this have to be housed somewhere. But many people will understandably be furious at how close the accommodation is to a nursery. Perhaps the more shocking element of this episode is the fact someone guilty of such a horrific crime is free to walk the streets at all."
