Rapist given six more years in jail after judges ruled that his sentence was too lenient



56-year-old Christopher Appleby who was found guilty of ‘taking away the childhood’ of one of his young victims who he raped from when she was 11 until her late teens, has had his prison term increased.



Appleby's prison term was increased on appeal after judges ruled his original sentence for a ‘campaign of rape’ was too lenient.



The convict was initially handed a 15-year jail sentence after being found guilty of raping his above victim and two other girls when they were in their mid-teens.



However after Solicitor General Alex Chalk raised a concern that the original sentence was unduly lenient, it was considered in London on Thursday December 9 by Lord Justice Haddon-Cave, Mr Justice Hilliard and Judge Mark Lucraft.
