Former One Nation adviser appeals rape conviction
A FORMER One Nation adviser jailed for raping a woman has lodged an appeal against his five-year sentence.
Sean Black has filed an appeal against the conviction and sentence with the Court of Appeal.
The hearing will be held at the Court of Appeal on a date to be determined.
Black's sentence was to be suspended after two years and three months.
Earlier this month Black was convicted of raping the woman in a bathroom in 2007, pushing her down stairs and crushing her hand in a door.
Black, who did not give evidence, was acquitted on a separate count of assault.
