This is just an awful, horrible story.
Max Clifford is a renowned celebrity publicist, you might have heard of him.
Maybe it's because he represents (or at least represented until very recently) music and TV icon Simon Cowell. Or maybe it's because the 71-year-old Brit was recently convicted of eight counts of indecent assault against a multitude of young women.
Ugh. Absolutely disgusting. It doesn't matter how good he is at PR because this is one of those super icky stories that just cannot be spun.
A British judge has just sentenced him to spend at least eight years in prison for his horrible, reprehensible actions. Though the crimes were all committed over 30 years ago, the judge didn't let that stop him from throwing the book at Max.
Here's an excerpt from the judge's ruling:
