Stuart Hall - Stuart Hall's Sentence To Be Reviewed

Stuart Hall's prison sentence is to be reviewed after officials in the U.K. were bombarded with complaints from politicians and charity leaders who alleged the disgraced Tv presenter's jail stint is too lenient.

The former It's A Knockout host was jailed for 15 months in June (13) after pleading guilty to 14 counts of indecent assault against girls aged nine to 17 in a series of offences dating back to 1967.

However, more than 150 people, including several Members of Parliament (Mps), petitioned Britain's Attorney General about the length of the sentence, so he has now agreed to refer the case to the U.K.'s Court of Appeal.

A spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Office says, "Having carefully reviewed this case, the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, QC Mp, has decided to refer the sentence of Stuart Hall to the Court of Appeal for review. The case will in due course be heard by three Court of Appeal judges who will decide whether or not the sentence is unduly lenient and whether they should increase the sentence."

The case is likely to be be heard at the Court of Appeal within the next two months.
