Ray Teret, Jimmy Savile’s DJ colleague, has been found guilty of seven rapes and 11 indecent assaults against schoolgirls.
He was convicted of the string of historical sex allegations in the 1960s and 1970s at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.
The 73-year-old was alleged to have used his celebrity status in the Manchester club scene to prey on many of his “starstruck” victims.
Teret – known as Ugli Ray – was mentored by Savile in the early days of his career and was described as following him around “like a shadow”.
During the eight-week trial, Teret – a former Radio Caroline DJ – told the jury he had no interest in under-age girls.
