Stuart Hall has been sentenced to 15 months in prison after he admitted to 14 sex offences against young girls during his time with the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Hall, now 83-years-old, admitted to the crimes in May. This comes after he previously stated this year that the allegations against him were "pernicious, callous, cruel and, above all, spurious."
The BBC said that it was "appalled" with Hall's actions - some of which occurred in connection with his work for the network.
Part of the defense of Hall seemed to be the number of victims, as odd as that sounds. His barrister, Crispin Aylett, stated in court that Hall had "all of 13" victims, as opposed to the alleged 1,300 that Jimmy Savile had.
In addressing the former BBC presenter, the judge overseeing the case told Hall that his crimes revealed a "darker side to you, one hidden from public view until now, and a side which you were able to conceal taking advantage of your status as a well-liked celebrity."
The BBC appointed Linda Dobbs, a retired High Court judge, to investigate Hall's conduct while he was with the BBC. Her investigation will focus on the BBC's culture and what allowed Savile and Hall the opportunity to get away with their crimes for so long. The BBC says that it will reveal what Dobbs' findings are, and they "will be published as part of the Dame Janet Smith Review later this year."
Do you find that sentence to be fair?
