UK’s Worst Rep Gets Up to Eight Years in Prison for Sexual Assault

max-clifford-214x300Our long international nightmare is over: Max Clifford, the man who taught far too many people that the best way to get attention is to make stuff up, has been handed eight sentences of between six and 24 months each, to be served consecutively.
