    Introduction

    We have covered the case of Ian Watkins before and mentioned that, as expected, he was appealing his sentence.

    This was heard on 23rd July 2014 where the Court dismissed the appeal.

    For our background pieces, see :

    Appeal Ruling

    At the moment, we don’t have the judgment, just the news reports. We know that the Court said that the offences were “of such shocking depravity that they demanded a lengthy prison sentence“.

    That much is clear, for anyone who has read the facts of the case. The question is whether the sentence was still too long, despite the horrific nature of the offences. We will hold fire on that until there’s more details in the public domain ….
