Man, 47, convicted of raping his friend's 6-year-old daughter appeal 15-year prison sentence; says it is "manifestly excessive"



A 47-year-old man, Selwyn Lancaster, who was unanimously found guilty by a jury on two counts of child rape back in 2019, is now asking the Guyana Court of Appeal to set aside his conviction and sentence.



Lancaster is arguing that his conviction cannot be supported, having regard to the evidence adduced at his trial.



He also argues that the sentence is manifestly excessive, and not in keeping with established sentencing guidelines.Latest Post
