More than 50 cases have been pulled together by the National Association of Probation Officers (Napo) after it approached members from across the country to provide examples of "complicated" medium risk sex offenders.
Among the offenders who would be transferred to the private sector under Justice Secretary Chris Grayling's shake-up of rehabilitation, are a 32-year-old repeat offender in Greater Manchester who was convicted for violence against a child.
The dossier includes cases of child abuse, harassment by the internet, intent to cause grievous bodily harm, unlawful wounding and instances of repeated domestic violence.
