CALGARY - Disgraced Calgary psychiatrist Dr. Aubrey Levin was sentenced Thursday to five years in a federal prison for the “horrible” violation of three male patients, including one who secretly recorded video of the abuse.

But within minutes of Justice Donna Shelley’s decision to send the elderly sex offender to prison, his lawyers had appealed both his convictions and punishment.

Court of Appeal documents seek a new jury trial for Levin on the three sexual assault convictions a jury found him guilty of on Monday.
