Greyhound trainer sentence to be appealed

AAP logoAAP 4/10/2016

Disgraced Queensland greyhound trainer Tom Noble is again facing the possibility of time behind bars for live baiting practices.

Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath has instructed Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions to appeal Noble's wholly suspended three-year jail term.

The appeal was on the grounds that the decision to suspend the sentence was "manifestly inadequate", she said.

Noble, 69, was sentenced in the Ipswich District Court last month having pleaded guilty to 15 counts of serious animal cruelty related to live baiting.

The court had heard Noble used piglets, rabbits and possums to develop a "bloodlust" in the racing dogs between August and October 2014.

The attorney-general's decision also comes after the DPP lodged an application in late September targeting the net proceeds from the sale of Noble's Churchable property and seeking orders to compel him to get written consent before it is sold.
