Pretoria - Convicted child molester Cezanne Visser or "Advocate Barbie" - has several job offers on her release on parole, it was reported on Tuesday.

The head of correctional services' incarceration and corrections unit, deputy commissioner James Smalberger, refused to give details of the job offers - and pleaded with the public to give Visser a second chance.

"We need to give her space to apply her mind and decide which job she is going to take," said Smalberger.

Visser left the correctional services national headquarters in Pretoria on Monday morning, holding hands with her mother, Susan Lemmer, The Times reported.

She will be placed under house arrest after serving three years of a seven-year sentence.

Visser was found guilty of 11 charges, which included two of indecently assaulting an 11-year-old girl and a 14-year-old girl, and soliciting a 13-year-old girl to commit indecent acts.

She was also sentenced on a charge of defrauding a children's home to get them to allow children to spend weekends with her and her then lover Dirk Prinsloo.

Visser was convicted in 2009 and began serving prison time - after a failed application to appeal her sentence - in 2010.

She was previously turned down twice for release on correctional supervision by the parole board.
