A religious tyrant and his cruel wife must stay behind bars after a judge refused them leave to appeal against their long prison sentences.

The 47-year-old man was jailed for nine years and his wife, 41, for six years.

It seems like 6 and 9 years is too little for these people.  Their kids will be scarred for life.  I think they deserve the same.  Another case of dogma making people crazy.
