Disgraced British broadcaster Stuart Hall is facing a fresh police probe after a woman alleged he raped her repeatedly over several years. The 83-year-old former BBC sports presenter was jailed for 15 months in June (13) for a series of sex attacks on children as young as nine, dating back to the 1960s. His sentence was later doubled to 30 months following a public outcry in the U.K., and it has now emerged a woman has come forward with a new set of sex abuse allegations against Hall. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims she was repeatedly abused by the TV star during the 1980s. Police in Lancashire, England are investigating the allegations.
