In his book Mervin Conn says he gave up his shows due to allegations of assaulting a lady in his office

Mervyn Conn's conviction for attacking his 19 year old receptionist Margaret Malloy in 1989 was UPHELD ON APPEAL.

Mervyn Conn attacked her just 4 days after she started working for him.

The Front Page Headline of the Sun Newspaper dated Thursday 7th December 1989 says,

Judge Robin Laurie says of Mervyn Conn, 'Without the victim's consent you embraced her and fondled her genital area'. The judge imposed an eight week prison sentence and 1000 pounds compensation.

The Judge concludes, 'A custodial sentence is the only way this Court can properly deal with the circumstances'.

Mervyn Conn pleaded guilty, admitting indecent assault at London's Southwark Crown Court. Yet he appealed the sentence imposed; that prison was too harsh. The Appeal Court maintained the eight week sentence, but suspended it for two years. This is unambiguous. Guilty, with an eight week suspended sentence and 1000 pounds compensation. After all, he pleaded guilty, and said it was a 'moment of madness'. (Royal Courts of Justice, Friday 12th January 1990. Case Number 89/6677/Z2. File name: CONN/896677Z2. File number 019900112. Before Lord Justice Lloyd, Mr. Justice Tudor Evans and Mr Justice Owen. Regina v. Mervyn Harold Conn)

Yet when we read Mervyn Conn's book Mr Music Man, he says on Page 179 last paragraph,
'...I needed support after an employee made false allegations about me, which ended up all over the front pages of the papers'.

Mervin Conn continues, 'I was up for a knighthood and all that disappeared because mud sticks, even if you have been found innocent by the Courts. Tainted by this false accusation I found I was out of the Hurlingham Club'.

Let us make no mistake, despite what Mervin Conn writes in his book, the Sun correctly states 'his lawyers appealed the jail sentence'. NOT HIS CONVICTION.
