LONDON--Britain's top public relations guru Max Clifford was found guilty Monday of sexual assaults on young women in the first conviction stemming from a police investigation launched after the Jimmy Savile scandal.
Jurors at a London court found 71-year-old Clifford guilty of eight counts of indecent assault relating to four women as young as 15.
The spokesman for the stars was acquitted on two other counts, while the jury was unable to reach a verdict on another one.
The silver-haired publicist was granted bail ahead of sentencing on Friday.
