Grammy-award winning conductor jailed for historic sexual abuse

A Grammy-winning conductor who sexually abused two young boys has been jailed for 12 months.

Joseph Cullen was locked up after grooming his victims in the late 1970s and early 1980s while involved in choirs in Glasgow.

The married 55-year-old was finally brought to justice after one of them went to police in 2013.

Cullen returned to the High Court in Glasgow after pleading guilty to two charges of using lewd and libidinous conduct.

Lord Turnbull said the conductor had carved out a prestigious career following the abuse resulting in genuine international acclaim.

This included Cullen winning two Grammy Awards for his work with the famous London Symphony Chorus.  (more...)
