Pop millionaire faces child sex charges

Jonathan King
King launched the careers of several major bands  

LONDON, England -- Millionaire pop mogul Jonathan King has been charged with three sex offences, after being questioned by police over allegations of child sex abuse.

He has been released on conditional bail and is due to appear in court next Thursday.

King was arrested during a raid on his London home on Thursday. The arrest followed an investigation by the Serious Sex Offenders Unit of the National Criminal Intelligence Service.

The charges are believed to date back to the late 1970s and 1980s.

King had his first hit while he was still a student at Cambridge University. "Everyone's Gone to the Moon" went to Number 4 in the UK charts in July 1965.

Ten years later, he scored a summer hit with the single "Una Paloma Blanca".

But he is also know for discovering bands such as Genesis and 10cc, as well as for his work as a music producer and writer, and an entertainment TV presenter.
