Convicted sexual abuser Graham James will get another day in court, only this time it’s to see if he’ll be sent to jail for a few more years.
James’ sentence appeal is set for December 3 in a Manitoba court as they’ll look to extend his punishment beyond the two years he was given back in March. Former NHLers Theo Fleury and Sheldon Kennedy were both abused by the former junior hockey coach but it was him preying on Fleury and his cousin Todd Holt that landed him in prison.
The Crown was aiming for a six-year sentence for James when he was sentenced in March, hoping the judge would ignore previous jail time James served. That didn’t happen and now Fleury and Holt want to see him put away longer.
If the appeal fails, James can apply for parole in November and could be out on statutory release in July.
