Conviction appealed

18:31, Feb 06 2014

An Invercargill man has appealed his conviction for assaulting a female.

The appeal hearing for Ritchie Hamilton Alexander Kidd, 24, was held in the High Court at Invercargill this week.

Kidd's lawyer Jono Ross said the appeal was on the grounds that two errors had been made with Kidd's defended hearing - the judge had disallowed a relevant line of questioning and police had not disclosed the complainant's relevant conviction.

Justice Cameron Mander reserved his decision.
