LONDON (AP) — A jury has cleared a veteran radio and television DJ of 12 counts of indecent assault.

Jurors at London's Southwark Crown Court failed to reach a verdict on two more counts against Dave Lee Travis.

The 68-year-old had denied 13 counts of indecent assault and one of sexual assault.

He had been accused of assaulting young women over a period of three decades.

Travis, a longtime radio DJ and host of TV music show "Top of the Pops," was one of several veteran U.K. show business figures arrested after revelations that the late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile was a serial sexual predator who abused scores of young people.

A court hearing will be held Feb. 24 to decide whether Travis will face retrial on the two outstanding charges.
