Stuart Hall – veteran BBC broadcaster – finally confesses to his crimes – let’s hope this pedophile gets a long sentence
Stuart Hall, the veteran BBC broadcaster, has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting 13 girls, one of them aged just nine.
The former It’s A Knockout presenter admitted 14 historic counts of indecent assault at a court hearing last month, but they can only be revealed today after reporting restrictions were lifted.
His victims ranged in age from nine to 17, and the offences date from between 1967 and 1986.
Hall, 83, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, had previously strenuously denied any wrongdoing, saying the allegations against him were “pernicious, callous, cruel and above all spurious”.
