Rolf Harris Found Guilty of Indecent Assault

THE GUARDIAN – The veteran entertainer and artist Rolf Harris is facing prison after being found guilty of indecent assault following a trial in which he was portrayed as a “Jekyll and Hyde” character who used his celebrity status to grope and abuse young women and girls.

Following a dramatic six-week hearing, the jury at Southwark crown court convicted Harris of 12 counts of indecent assault, from 12 initial charges dating over nearly two decades from 1968.

The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, said the entertainer would be sentenced on Friday, pending medical reports, and warned Harris a jail term was “uppermost in the court’s mind”. Harris will remain on unconditional bail until Friday.
