Jailed Clifford sued by three women

The Oxford Times: Three women are suing jailed publicist Max Clifford. Three women are suing jailed publicist Max Clifford.

Three women who fell prey to Max Clifford are suing the disgraced PR guru following his conviction for a string of indecent assaults.

The 71-year-old was sentenced to eight years in prison earlier this month for eight assaults on four women between 1977 and 1984.

Today one of the women taking legal action said: "I was young and impressionable when I met Max Clifford and he used that to exploit me. It is right that he is held accountable for his actions."

Clifford finally fell from grace after decades influencing the media when he became the first person to be successfully prosecuted under sex crime investigation Operation Yewtree.

A number of his current and former high profile clients moved to distance themselves from the veteran agent in the wake of the guilty verdicts and his subsequent jail term.

The women's solicitor Richard Scorer said: "Clifford used his fame and public persona as a cloak to mask his sexual perversions. We are investigating all of Clifford's assets, including those of his companies, Max Clifford Associates and Max Clifford Media.

"We represent three women who have approached us for advice and we fully expect others to follow. I urge all of his victims to seek legal advice with a view to redress under the law."

Yesterday a judge signalled an end to Clifford's four-year marriage to wife Jo as the couple were granted a decree nisi in the Central Family Court in London.

Neither was at the hearing - although each was represented by a lawyer.

Divorce papers showed that Mrs Clifford had filed for divorce on the grounds of "unreasonable behaviour".

She said Clifford's behaviour had affected her health and had written: "I suffered from stress and had heart palpitation and saw a specialist."

Mrs Clifford had signed the petition on August 14 2013.

And she noted the date of the "final incident" she relied on as August 18 2012 - nearly four months before Clifford was arrested on suspicion of committing sex offences.

Lawyer Raymond Tooth, who represented Mrs Clifford, said after the hearing: "Everything has been settled amicably."

Clifford remained defiant despite the guilty verdicts in his trial and his lawyers said they planned to appeal against his sentence, and potentially his conviction.

Of course, why do you think the case was brought against him in the first place?
Do you think if he was a penny less pauper they would have had the gall to raise an action against another perpetrator?
CICA the compensation payment quango, pays out much less than a private action.
I would love some rich biddie to stick her hand down my trousers and play with my cahonnes.
"Oh I am mentally disturbed her Rolex watch got caught on one of my m*nge hairs and has traumatised me for life".
If you walk into a room and the Casting Couch asks you to strip naked for a possible photo shoot alarm bells should be ringing?
Or is the fact that the peroxide blond has had so much seepage that one was an airhead back in those days.
That's a tasty £60, grand. Thank you very much.
What an utter load of B*ll*cks. AVPG.
