+ + + Chaytor Launches Sentence Appeal + + +

Despite pleading guilty and despite being fast-tracked to an open prison, David Chaytor is not going away quietly. When he was locked up, the sentencing judge said sending him down would go some way to restoring the public’s faith in politics, but it seems he isn’t willing to take one for the team. He is appealing the length of his sentence. The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, and two other judges will hear an application by 61-year-old Chaytor at the Court of Appeal on March 22.
