Dave Lee Travis: Guilty as charged

Sympathy for Dave Lee Travis should evaporate after his having been found guilty of indecent assault and as he faces civil action over a further allegation

 

On Tuesday afternoon, Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis was found guilty of indecent assault at London’s Southwark Crown Court despite having so loudly and publicly protested his innocence.

After having been cleared earlier this year of a number of other charges, Lee Travis stated:

 

“I’ve been through a year-and-a-half of hell with this, which includes costing me so much money… I had to sell my house to do it… I did lose my reputation as well, which I may try get back later. I want to say I had two trials: one by media and one by crown court, and I have to say in all honesty that I preferred trial by crown court. All I want to do now is go home, relax with my wife and daughter who has also been suffering with me”.

 

Mr Lee Travis gained sympathy at the time as many believed he’d been treated unfairly and was a “victim of a witch hunt”. With this verdict, it is time to reassess such thoughts and to accept that here, again, is yet another example of a personality who wrongly considered he was above the law.

 

Dave Lee Travis will be sentenced on Friday 26th September and separately, it can now be revealed, he faces a civil claim from an additional alleged victim of primary school age.

  1. His poor daughter is also suffering! But he obviously wasn’t giving a Monkey’s toss about he’s daughter when he was raping someone elses young Daughter.

    • Well said. I agree with you on this. The picture of Dave Lee Travis with Sir Jimmy Savile says it all. What a dirty pair of perverts.
