A Cornish artist, who walked free from court after being convicted of child sex offences, will have his sentence reviewed.

Graham Ovenden from Mount near Bodmin was given a suspended jail term of a year.

Now the 70 year old's case has been referred to the Court of Appeal over claims it is too lenient.

A spokesman for The Attorney General said: "Having carefully reviewed this case, the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC MP, has decided to refer the sentence of Graham Ovenden 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."

Graham Ovenden was convicted of six counts of indecency with a child and one count of indecent assault on the 4th June, at Plymouth Crown Court.

He was sentenced by His Honour Judge Cottle to 12 months imprisonment, suspended for two years concurrent on each count.
