The Parole Board deciding whether Baby P's mother Tracey Connelly should be released was not looking at what happened to Baby Peter himself - they don't consider how serious that crime was.
What they are purely looking at is whether she still poses any kind of risk to the public and they have obviously decided that she doesn't.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling will now take the final decision of how and when it will happen and Connelly will remain on licence, so if she steps out of order she will be sent back to prison.
