Hey Dad! star makes final appeal against child sex convictions

Former Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes will take his fight against child sex abuse convictions to Australia’s highest court today.

His lawyer filed documents earlier this year in the High Court to appeal his convictions and jail term.

In 2014 Hughes was sentenced to at least six years in prison after he was found guilty of 10 charges of sexual abuse on four young girls in the 1980’s and 1990’s.


His appeal to the New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal dismissed his challenge against the convictions last December.

The High Court is his final avenue of appeal.
