Former Music Impresario Jailed For Sexual Abuse

According to BBC former music impresario Jonathan King has been jailed for seven years for sexual abuse.

King, charged under his real name Kenneth King, was found guilty of four indecent assaults and two serious sexual offences against boys aged 14 and 15, committed in the 1980s.

He will have to sign the sex offenders' register for life and will be barred from working with children.

King, who denied all the charges, continues to protest his innocence on his website.

His lawyers said they had already lodged an appeal to the High Court.

Judge David Paget told a pale and shaken King: "This was a serious breach of trust.

"You used your fame and success to attract adolescent and impressionable boys."

The 56-year-old former television presenter, who lives in Bayswater, west London, was convicted on September 27th.

But reporting restrictions were not lifted until Wednesday because other allegations were being dealt with.
