A violent rapist who attacked a woman in Penzance finds out later whether his prison sentence is being extended.

Lee Hosking was sent down for nine and a half years after a judge called what happened "every woman's nightmare."

The 28 year old engineer attacked the woman, throwing her to the floor and stamping on her.

Even though it was six years ago - his victim still bears the scars.

He was caught using DNA evidence, arrested and sent down in January.

But the Attorney General is asking the Court of Appeal to review the sentence, because he thinks it may have been too lenient.

Judges are set to rule on Friday.
