Ex-DJ Ray Teret jailed for rapes
Former DJ Ray Teret has been jailed for 25 years for a series of rapes and indecent assaults on girls as young as 12.
Teret, 73, a friend of Jimmy Savile, was convicted of seven counts of rape and 11 counts of indecent assault at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court last week.
He abused girls aged between 12 and 15 during the 1960s and 1970s.
Teret did not react as he was taken down. Mr Justice Baker tells him the effect of the 25 year sentence is he will most likely spend the rest of his life in jail
Many of the women who were raped by Ray Teret are in court – many are crying – some shouted monster at him as he was taken down.
Jimmy Savile’s former chauffeur Ray Teret found guilty of seven rapes and 11 indecent assaults on children
A DJ friend of Jimmy Savile has been convicted of a catalogue of historical sex offences against young girls.
Ex-Radio Caroline DJ Ray Teret, 73, used his celebrity status in the Manchester club scene in the 1960s and 1970s to prey on many of his 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’, Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard.
Teret, of Altrincham, Greater Manchester, told the jury he had no interest in underage girls, despite a previous conviction for sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl in 1999, an offence he continues to deny.
He denied 18 rapes, two other serious sexual assaults, one attempted rape, 12 indecent assaults and one count of indecency with a child.
After more 60 hours of deliberations, he was convicted of seven rapes and 11 indecent assaults. He was cleared of the other charges.
