Disgraced former British Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has been jailed for 13 years for child sex abuse and even “offered” one boy to another BBC presenter.
The prolific paedophile, 75, used his fame to groom and sexually assault dozens of young victims in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
He took some of the boys to London on several occasions and introduced them to other celebrities, including Gary Glitter.
Denning, one of Radio 1’s founding presenters, was sentenced to a total of 13 years’ imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court for abusing 11 boys, some as young as eight.
Judge Alistair McCreath said the effect on the victims, now grown men, has been “devastating”.
He described the offences as “utterly depraved”, and added: “It is not to be forgotten that all of this suffering was inflicted by you for nothing other than your own selfish pleasure.’
Denning previously pleaded guilty to 21 sexual offences, including indecent assault and inciting boys to commit acts of gross indecency.
He is already serving a 13-year jail sentence for a catalogue of sexual assaults against 24 victims, including one allegedly at Jimmy Savile’s house.
Judge McCreath ordered that the latest sentence will start from today.
Tony Wadsworth, 68, and his wife Julie, 58, are the recent BBC stars facing charges with sex-offences against four children.
The duo will be appearing before Warwickshire Magistrates’ Court on May 11.
Between 1996 and 1999 the Leicestershire residents are accused of committing the offences in Atherstone.
Mr and Mrs Wadsworth also present shows on BBC Radio Leicester and BBC WM in Birmingham.
A BBC spokesman asserts ”both presenters have been removed from the air” while investigations ensue.
He said: “We understand the charges do not relate to their conduct or position at the BBC”.
Mr Wadsworth faces five counts of inciting a boy under the age of 16 to commit an act of gross indecency.
Mrs Wadsworth’s charges include seven counts of inciting a boy under the age of 16 to commit an act of gross indecency.
They both also face one count each of committing an act outraging public decency.
The BBC’s pedophile portfolio also lists TV and radio presenter Stuart Hall whose conviction of sexual offences occurred in 2013 and 2014.
Another convict on twelve counts of indecent assault is veteran BBC entertainer Rolf Harris in 2014.
Jill Nando was the first person to alert BBC authorities of a pedophile ring within the company but she was murdered in front of her apartment on April 26, 1999.
