A Fathers4Justice campaigner jailed for six months for defacing a portrait of the Queen with paint in Westminster Abbey appeals against the length of his sentence today.
Tim Haries, 42, of Bellis Avenue, Doncaster, who told jurors he vandalised the picture to highlight the "social justice issue of our time", will have his challenge heard at the Court of Appeal in London by the Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, sitting with Mr Justice Keith and Mr Justice Royce.
Haries denied a charge of causing criminal damage of more than £5,000, but was found guilty at London's Southwark Crown Court in January.
