Smith was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 2011. He was given a 12 months suspended sentence, placed on a 12 months drug rehabilitation programme and placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years.

After the appeal Smith handed himself into a police station in Leeds at around 8pm on Wednesday.
