Court of Appeal upholds Peter Swailes’ suspended sentence
12th April 2022
The Court of Appeal has upheld the suspended sentence handed down to a man who admitted exploiting a vulnerable worker living in a shed on a caravan park in Cumbria.
Peter Swailes, 56, of Cryndlbeck Stables, Low Harker, Carlisle, was sentenced to nine months in prison, suspended for 18 months, at Carlisle Crown Court in February this year.
His sentence was referred to the Court of Appeal by the Attorney General’s Office under the unduly lenient scheme.
However, at a hearing in London on Tuesday April 12, the court concluded that the sentence was not unduly lenient.
The original sentence remains unchanged.
