BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall has pleaded guilty to 14 indecent assaults on young girls, prosecutors said Thursday.
The 83-year-old sports broadcaster was arrested in January for questioning about alleged crimes committed between 1967 and 1986.
Hall admitted his guilt in court in mid-April but the information could not be made public for legal reasons until Thursday, when reporting restrictions on the case were lifted.
Hall's lawyer Crispin Aylett said Hall is "sorry for what he has done" and wishes to apologize to his victims.
"He is only too aware his disgrace is complete," Aylett said.
