Children’s charity patron handed eight-year prison sentence.

Max Clifford, patron of Epping-based charity Rhys Daniels Trust, has been sentenced to eight years in jail at Southwark Crown Court today.

He was convicted of eight indecent assaults, half of which were against a 15-year-old girl in 1977.

Woking and Sam Beare Hospices and Shooting Star Chase children’s hospice in Surrey broke ties with Clifford after he was found guilty on Tuesday.
