LONDON--A British children's charity says at least 500 people have reported abuse by the late entertainer Jimmy Savile, with the youngest alleged victim just 2 years old.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) said Monday that the most common age group for victims was 13 to 15.
Peter Watt, the charity's director of child protection, said Savile was a “prolific sex offender ... (who) lost no opportunity to identify vulnerable victims and abuse them.”
