Savile lawyers would 'make mincemeat' of alleged victim

An alleged victim of Savile says she was told by police in 2008 that she risked being branded a 'liar', while his lawyers 'made mincemeat of her'.

Because he had plenty of money, Jimmy Savile would have the best lawyers, it would all take place in a big court in London and his lawyers would make mincemeat of her. She also got the clear impression from the police that she would be publicly branded a liar and that her name would be all over the newspapers, particularly if she lost the case.
