'Disgraced' celeb publicist Max Clifford jailed for eight years for sex assaults
Disgraced celebrity publicist Max Clifford on Monday was jailed for eight years for indecent assaults on girls and young women.
The 71-year-old PR man has now become the first person to be convicted under the Operation Yewtree, the BBC reported.
Judge Anthony Leonard said that Clifford should serve his eight sentences of between six and 24 months consecutively.
Earlier, the court also heard how the abuse Clifford subjected on four women changed the course of their lives.
He was a key player in the British media in the 1990s and 2000s, orchestrating tabloid revelations about the sex lives of number of celebs, including David Beckham, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Jude Law.
