Former radio presenter Ray Teret jailed for 25 years

Former Radio Caroline, Piccadilly and BBC Radio 2 presenter Ray Teret has been sentenced for rape and indecent assault of girls in Manchester in 60s and 70s.

He’s been given 25 years after a jury found him guilty of seven charges of rape and 11 of indecent assault, which took place between 1963 and 1979. He was cleared of various sexual offences in relation to six other complainants.

Greater Manchester police has also confirmed it was investigating more sexual abuse allegations against Ray Teret made by four other women.

Sentencing, Mr Justice Baker said: “It is clear that you exploited your celebrity status to sexually abuse young girls when they were between 13 and 15 years of age.

“Those who were raped had little or no understanding what was happening to them and felt they could do little to prevent the abuse taking place.”
