Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Presenter awarded MBE for charity work is cleared of sexual abuse”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A radio presenter has been cleared of sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy 40 years ago - when he was aged 20.

Kevin Johns, 60, maintained his innocence and called the allegations 'nonsense' after he was accused of grooming the child in Swansea in the 1980s.

He denied 'selfishly and arrogantly' grasping an opportunity for sexual gratification with the teenager.

When his barrister Matthew Roberts asked whether he was guilty, he told a jury at Caernarfon Crown Court: 'Not at all, no.' 

Mr Johns, who has worked for the BBC, hosted a breakfast show on Swansea Sound for 25 years. He organised charity events in the city and at Swansea City FC, and appeared as panto dame in Peter Pan at his local Grand Theatre.
