Celebrity publicist Max Clifford has been described as living a "double existence" during his decades influencing the media after being sentenced to eight years for a string of indecent assaults.
Passing sentence at Southwark Crown Court, Judge Anthony Leonard told him:
Although your charitable work has gone on for a long time after your offending stopped, I cannot ignore that for decades you were leading a double existence.
Judge Leonard said he believed Clifford's personality and profile were why the crimes he committed had not been made public sooner.
Some of Clifford's supporters, sitting behind the dock in the public gallery, broke down in tears as he was sentenced. The 71-year-old was taken away to the cells.
