Stuart Hall Gets 15 Months in Jail
Stuart Hall

Veteran British broadcaster Staurt Hall has been jailed
for 15 months for a string of sex attacks on children as young as nine.

The 83-year-old
BBC sports presenter, who also fronted game show It's a Knockout, has admitted
inappropriately kissing and groping 13 girls aged between nine and 17 years old
in a series of offences dating back to 1967.

Most of the
victims were daughters of Hall's friends and acquaintances. One was assaulted
after appearing as a cheerleader on It's a Knockout, and another was abused in
his dressing room at the BBC.

Hall was
sentenced to 15 months by a judge at a court in Preston, England on Monday
(17 June) after previously pleading guilty to 14 charges of indecent assault.

The
judge told Hall the offences were worsened as there was "a degree of
planning and premeditation" to the attacks.
