THE Department of Public Prosecutions is appealing the sentence handed to Echuca child sex fiend Fabian Meharry.
Fabian Roy Meharry, 28, was in March sentenced to 12 years’ jail for sexually abusing more than 20 girls, all aged under 17.
Victoria’s Director of Public Prosecutions John Champion lodged an appeal today on the grounds the sentence was manifestly inadequate.
The sentence included a non-parole period of 10 years.
Meharry pleaded guilty in Victoria’s County Court to 62 charges including sexual penetration of a child under 16.
