Provincial authorities have filed an appeal of the sentence given to former hockey coach Graham James on sex-abuse charges.
Disgraced junior hockey coach Graham James was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison for sexually preying on two of his former players.

Former junior hockey coach and convicted sex offender Graham James has pleaded guilty to sexual assaults involving two of his former players, including NHL star Theoren Fleury.
Convicted sex offender Graham James surrendered to police Wednesday at Toronto's Pearson International Airport and was whisked to Winnipeg, where the former major junior hockey coach was wanted on nine charges of sexual assault.
"I was just a kid. A child," Fleury said in his victim impact statement. "I was completely under Graham James's control. And I was scared. I did not have the emotional skills, the knowledge or the ability to stop the rapes or change my circumstances. I felt lost, alone and helpless."
"I understand that it does take a while to put an investigation together, put charges together and whatnot, so I'm pleased at this point with the result of what happened today," Fleury said from Toronto. "We'll just keep moving forward and trust in the legal system that we'll get justice."
