Wow! 71 year old PR Guru Max Clifford gets 8 year jail term for indecent assault on 3 women in 1977 (41 years ago)

Wow.. imagine committing a crime over 40 years ago and being jailed for it..Disgraced PR guru Max Clifford was today jailed for eight years for a string of indecent assaults on three women and a 15-year-old girl.The 71-year-old was convicted of eight counts of the crime, carried out between 1977 and 1984.

Despite this, today he stood his grounds that he is innocent saying" I stand by everything I have said in the last 17 months.'
Judge Anthony Leonard  who passed the sentence at Southwark Crown Court today, told him: '
These offences may have taken place a long time ago, when inappropriate and trivial sexual behaviour was more likely to be tolerated, but your offending was not trivial, but of a very serious nature.''The reason why they were not brought to light sooner was because of your own dominant character and your position in the world of entertainment which meant that your victims thought that you were untouchable, something that I think you too believed.'Continue...
 The judge said that due to the age of the offences that occurred between 1977 and 1984, Clifford was charged under an act from 1956, which set the maximum term at two years per offence.

Clifford repeatedly shook his head as the judge made his comments to a packed courtroom. Clifford once represented the likes of Marvin Gaye,Muhammad Ali and Marlon Brando..
