Retrial for British broadcaster Travis on sex assault charge
(02-24 20:17)

Veteran British radio and television personality Dave Lee Travis will appear in court again in March despite being cleared of a dozen counts of indecent assault earlier this month.
Although the jury in that case found the 68-year-old innocent of a series of alleged assaults against young women, it failed to reach a decision on one count of indecent assault and another of sexual assault.
Prosecutor Miranda Moore told London's Southwark Crown Court that officials want a retrial on the two outstanding counts.
Travis is a radio DJ and former host of TV music show “Top of the Pops.''
Speaking after he was acquitted of most of the counts on February 13, Travis said he had experienced “a year and a half of hell.''—AP
