Stuart Hall: Court Of Appeal To Review Sentence Today

I think a great deal will be inferred from the news that will come from The Court of Appeal today about how seriously the authorities are now taking child abuse.

The Court of Appeal will rule later on whether the 15-month jail term for child abuser and former BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall should be increased.

Hall, 83, admitted 14 counts of indecent assault on girls aged between nine and 17 between 1967 and 1985.

But the Attorney General Dominic Grieve referred his sentence after some groups claimed it was “unduly lenient”.

It is believed Mr Grieve’s department received about 165 complaints about the length of the term.

The NSPCC said Hall, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, had shown a “total disregard” for his victims’ feelings during the case.
