Rod Hayler success in the Court of Appeal
02 February 2018
Rod Hayler was successful with an appeal against sentence this week.
The three judges sitting in Court 8 of the Court of Appeal earlier this week agreed with Rod's contention that a sentence of 9 years was manifestly excessive. Rod argued that the judge in the Crown Court had misapplied the sentencing guidelines and had failed to award the appropriate discount for an early guilty plea.
The sentence was reduced from 9 years to 6.
