Mark Campbell, the man who was convicted and handed two life sentences for raping underage boys, has now moved to the Court of Appeal, seeking to have his conviction and sentence overturned.

Campbell was sentenced to life imprisonment with the eligibility for parole after serving 30 years by Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry after he pleaded guilty to sexually penetrating the five-year-old boy on April 16, 2013.

In October 2017, the convicted rapist was handed another life sentence by Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall, after he was found guilty of raping a young boy on two occasions.

In that case, the court had heard that Campbell first engaged in sexual penetration of the boy during the month of September, 2011, when the boy was six-years-old. It also found that he raped the child on July 10th, 2013, when he was eight-years-old.

The man had also appeared to answer to two counts of sexually penetrating a three-year-old boy.

However, the jury, by a count of 11 to one, found Campbell not guilty of sexually penetrating the child.
The panel of jurors was unable to come to a consensus on the second count, which alleged that he raped the same child two years later, on July 16 2013.

They were reportedly deadlocked, with eight believing him to be guilty and four believing him to be not guilty.
