Re: Jimmy Savile

I had forgotten about King.

I think what's going to be tricky from the police's perspective is trying to seperate the abused from the (likely) young women who willingly threw themselves at celebrities back then. Not saying that makes it right if underage girls were involved, but might just muddy the water enough for a clever lawyer to get someone off. I saw a quote from the Quo's Rick Parfitt talking about what the girls in the TOTP audience were like at times and there'll always been teenagers smitten with rock stars and the like (obviously Savile doesn't fall into this category but Glitter might) although even if they weren't underage, and went willingly into a dressing room, it doesn't follow that they knew what they were letting themselves in for.
