Serial rapist, Patrick Green, has filed an appeal against the sentences imposed on him in two separate courts. 

Green is contending that the sentences are manifestly excessive and should be reduced.

In March this year, the Clarendon man was sentenced in the St. James Circuit Court to a total 35 years for the rape of five females, including an eight-year-old girl in Irwin Point, St James.

The incident happened in 2012.

Two brothers were initially charged for the crimes but were later freed after DNA tests did not return a match. 

Following further investigations by the police Green was arrested and charged in relation to the incident.

When the matter was brought before the court Green pleaded guilty to six counts of rape and six counts of grievous sexual assault.

Meanwhile, in December 2014, Green was sentenced to a total of 83 years in the Clarendon Circuit Court with eight additional counts of rape, two counts of robbery, two counts of forcible abduction, eight counts of illegal possession of a firearm and two counts of grievous sexual assault.

Green was ordered to serve 30 years before he becomes eligible for parole.
