Appeal Court

At the appeal court in May Judge Nicholas Cole at Worcester Crown Court slammed the farmer for his 'outrageous behaviour' but reduced his sentence by 2 months down to 10 months.

This week Mr Price was authorised for a 'Home Detention Curfew' with stringent guidelines, a Prison Service official stated. The 68-year-old would be sent back to jail if those regulations were breached, they added.
