Former DJ guilty of sex offences
Former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning has pleaded guilty to a string of sex offences against young boys.
He admitted 29 charges involving boys as young as nine when he appeared at Southwark Crown Court in London.
But he denied a further 12 charges and will face trial on November 24.
The offences he admitted were committed between 1967 and 1984 – and involved boys aged from nine to 16.
Denning (73) pleaded guilty to 26 counts of indecent assault on a male person and three of indecency with a child.
The charges he denies are two offences of buggery, one of attempted buggery, eight of indecent assault on a male person, and one of indecency with a child.
Wearing spectacles and a grey fleece, he entered the 41 pleas with a clear voice.
Denning, of Basildon in Essex, was one of the original Radio 1 line-up when the station was launched in 1967.
Judge Alistair McCreath told him he would be remanded in custody until his trial, which is expected to last up to two weeks.
