British radio DJ convicted of indecent assault

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) A jury has found veteran British radio DJ Dave Lee Travis guilty of indecent assault.

The 69-year-old Travis, whose real name is David Griffin, was cleared on two other assault charges on Tuesday.

Travis was a longtime DJ on BBC radio and host of TV music show "Top of the Pops."

He was arrested in November as part of a wide-ranging police investigation into past abuse after revelations that the late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile was a serial sexual predator who abused hundreds of young people.

Prosecutors said Travis was an "opportunist" who acted as if he had the right to grope young women.

The allegations date back to the 1990s and related to women who alleged they were assaulted while working with Travis.
