Guilty of abusing a 15 year old girl. Guilty of being a child abuser.
Spin that one Max!
PR guru Max Clifford has been found guilty of a string of indecent assaults on teenage girls over a period of nearly 20 years.
The 71-year-old became the first person to be convicted under the high profile Operation Yewtree sex crime investigation at Southwark Crown Court today.
He was found guilty of eight indecent assaults, cleared of two and the jury was unable to reach a verdict on one other.
He denied all the charges and continues to deny one outstanding offence, which the jury were unable to reach a decision on.
He was arrested by detectives from Operation Yewtree in December 2012, and charged in April the following year.
