Anna Barnes was the Youth Offender Officer assigned to Aidan Critchley when he was arrested in January 2003 for the murder of Maxine Peacock and the attempted murder of Emily Bishop, crimes for which Richard Hillman was really responsible. Anna let Ken Barlow, who had been his mentoring tutor at Weatherfield Comprehensive, see him for a few minutes after he had been formally charged in court and before he was sent to a Young Offenders Institution pending his trial.
