From the BBC:

"Giving evidence, the woman - now a television personality - said she was 22 when Travis approached her as she was smoking a cigarette in a corridor of the BBC studios in Manchester."

"But the woman's account of having raised the assault incident at the time was backed up by comedian Dave Gorman, a scriptwriter on the show, and the producer Peter Kessler, who told the jury they remembered her claims clearly."

So we can discount compensation, we can discount "5 minutes of fame."

In that case what you appear to be saying is that if you can afford to spend 100k on defence and are bankrupted by it then that should count as some sort of mitigation, and are therefore perpetuating the idea that rich, powerful men(and invariably it is men) will carry on in this way because either no one will believe their accusers, or they'll be able to buy their way out of trouble with good lawyers.

That needs to be challenged in the strongest possible way. The message needs to be sent that NO MATTER who you are, no matter how much time has passed, you will face the full extent of the law. You are on completely the wrong side of the argument here.
