Disgraced British Dj Dave Lee Travis has been handed a three-month suspended prison sentence for groping a woman backstage at a Tv show.

The presenter, a stalwart at the Bbc's flagship Radio 1 during its 1970s and '80s heyday, was convicted of indecent assault on Tuesday (23Sep14) for grabbing a startled researcher's breasts in a corridor at a studio in 1995.

He faced a possible jail sentence for the offence but a judge at London's Southwark Crown Court told the relieved Dj on Friday (26Sep14) that his three-month sentence would be suspended.

Judge Anthony Leonard, Qc, told Travis, "It was an intentional and unpleasant sexual assault."

The Dj, who was also a long-standing host of Bbc chart show Top of the Pops, had been cleared of 13 other charges related to allegations of groping.
