Hey Dad! Star Robert Hughes Loses High Court Appeal

Hey Dad! Star Robert Hughes has just lost his High Court appeal over child sex convictions.

68-year-old Hughes, has been in jail since 2014 after being found guilty for 10 counts of sexual and indecent assault dating back to the 1980’s.

The case against him suggested that Hughes had a tendency to opportunistically engage in sexual activities with young girls.

Hughes argued each accusation was ‘too different’ to be regarded as a tendency under law.

His arguments were since overturned by the High Court in a four to three ruling which supported the evidence used in the conviction.

He is currently serving a minimum six year sentence.
