Artist says case is 'witch hunt'

Renowned Cornwall artist Graham Ovenden, who has been given a suspended sentence for indecency offences against young girls, has described his conviction as a "mindless witch hunt".

Ovenden, 70, who was sentenced to 12 months in jail, suspended for two years, was convicted of indecency and indecent assault dating back 40 years.

After being sentenced at Plymouth Crown Court, Ovenden said he did not have the "slightest intention of apologising".
