Jimmy Savile's victims "will take some comfort" from Ray Teret's conviction for historical sex offences, an abuse lawyer representing clients with claims against both men has said.
Liz Dux of Slater & Gordon, which represents 169 of Savile's victims and one of Teret's, welcomed the verdict.
This is the closest the victims of Jimmy Savile will get to a conviction against their attacker - they will take some comfort from the verdict.
Teret has been proved to be a predatory paedophile and dangerous sex offender in the same mould as his friend Savile. Yet again it shows victims of sexual assault that, even years after offences have been committed, they will be taken seriously, offenders can be punished and justice finally done.
Our client is to be commended for her bravery in giving evidence about a truly horrific crime. Having lived with the mental scars for many years, I hope now she can find some closure.
