Hugh Collins was released from prison on 5 July 1994, and married the following month. His sculpture, ‘Christ, the Sinner’, was commissioned by the St Columbus Church in Glasgow but rejected owing to its explicit depiction of Christ’s genitalia. It is on permanent exhibition at the Demarco Gallery. A collection of Collins’s work, Evolution of the Special Unit, was published in 1983. He has written to volumes of autobiogtaphy – Autobiography of a Murderer (1998) and Walking Away (2000), as well as two novels, No Smoke (2001) and The Licensee (2002).
