BBC chief's apology to paedophile Jonathan King for writing him out of pop history
Now 66, King was convicted in 2001 of sexual assault on five teenage boys in the 1980s. He was given a seven-year jail sentence and was released on parole in 2005.
He was shamed in September 2001 when he received a seven-year sentence for six offences against five boys aged 14 to 16, committed between 1983 and 1989.There have been other charges against Gary Glitter also.
I don't recall hearing about things like this back then. Probably because people didn't pay attention, or mind. It wasn't always the "good old days".
