ARGIES WANT APOLOGY
Travis – real name David Griffin – was found guilty at London’s Southwark Crown Court and sentenced last month.
A spokesman said: “The Attorney General has decided not to refer the suspended prison sentence given to David Griffin to the Court of Appeal as he does not believe they would find it to be unduly lenient and increase it.
“The judge marked the seriousness of the offence by imposing a three-month sentence of imprisonment, the maximum under the guidelines being six months.
“It was neither wrong in principle nor unduly lenient to suspend that sentence.”
Travis’s trial heard that the former Top Of The Pops presenter got a “weird sexual thrill’’ when he indecently assaulted the victim, who is now a successful TV personality, in 1995.
Travis, of Aylesbury, Bucks, was arrested in October 2012 under Operation Yewtree, Scotland Yard’s probe into historic sexual abuse in the wake of allegations against the late DJ Jimmy Savile. ARGENTINA has demanded a public apology from the BBC following its feud with host Jeremy Clarkson.
Earlier this month Clarkson and co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May were run out of the country by an angry mob thought to be reacting to a number plate on Clarkson’s Porsche that appeared to mock the Falklands War.
Now Argentina ambassador Alicia Castro has made a formal complaint to the Beeb, slamming claims made by Clarkson that the thugs had been ‘state organised’.
A BBC spokesman said: “The BBC has received a complaint and will apply its usual processes.”
