Die veroordeelde tennisspeler, Bob Hewitt, sal na verwagting vandag in die Hooggeregshof in Pretoria appèl aanteken teen sy vonnisse.

Die 75-jarige Hewitt is verlede maand ses jaar tronkstraf en ‘n boete van ‘n honderd-duisend rand opgelê.

Hy is in Maart skuldig bevind op twee aanklagte van verkragting en een van seksuele aanranding terwyl hy nog tennis-afrigter was.
