CALGARY- The Alberta Court of Appeal has upheld the five- year sentence handed to disgraced forensic psychiatrist Aubrey Levin.

In January 2013, Levin was convicted of sexually assaulting three men assigned to him as patients through the courts.

On Tuesday, the appeal court denied Levin’s request to have the five- year sentence reduced to two to three years.

Levin launched the appeal of his sentence after the appeal court rejected an appeal of his conviction in April 2013.

Levin had faced other charges but was found not guilty on two counts of sexual assault and a mistrial was declared on four other counts.
