DPP Will Appeal Sentence Of Rapist Stepfather

The Director of Public Prose­cutions, Christopher Pryde, will appeal the sentence imposed on a stepfather convict­ed and sentenced for rape on the grounds that the sentence of 14 years was manifestly lenient hav­ing regard to the facts and the cir­cumstances of the case.

The 32-year-old man was convict­ed in the High Court on July 26, 2018 of three representative counts of rape and one count of act with intent to cause grievous harm to his 10-year-old step daughter.

The Petition of Appeal was filed in the Court of Appeal Registry on Wednesday.
