Larry Murphy left prison at least five years early on Thursday because of his 'good behaviour'.
On February 11, 2000, hunters who were lamping foxes in the Wicklow mountains discovered him raping and assaulting a woman he'd kidnapped violently from a car park. He drove off in his Fiat but was caught.
The carpenter from Baltinglass was convicted of attempted murder and rape and sentenced to a total of 22 years, with 15 to be served.
