Aust teacher appeals Cambodian conviction

A retired Australian teacher is appealing his conviction in Cambodia for indecent assault against minors after the prosecution also said it would appeal the verdict and the leniency of his sentence.

Garry Mulroy was in May convicted of assaulting six boys aged between 11 and 14 but was acquitted of the more serious charge of child prostitution, which carries a potential 15-year jail term.

The court in northwest Siem Reap sentenced the former Catholic teacher from Lismore to two years behind bars. Including time already served, he was to be released in July 2021.
