I did think we had a thread on him, but can't find one - yet more charges....


Rolf Harris faces seven indecent assault charges

Rolf Harris is to be charged with seven counts of indecent assault, the Crown Prosecution Service has said.

The CPS said it had "carefully considered" evidence gathered and had authorised police to charge the 85-year-old former entertainer.

The alleged offences date from 1971 to 2004 and relate to seven complainants aged between 12 and 27 at the time of the alleged incidents, the CPS added.

Mr Harris is currently serving a prison sentence for sex-related offences.

He will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 17 March.




In a statement, the CPS said it had reviewed evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police as part of Operation Yewtree.

"We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Harris to be charged with seven counts of indecent assault," it added.

Operation Yewtree is investigating sexual abuse allegations and was launched in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

Entertainer Rolf Harris will stand trial via video link from prison for an alleged string of historic sex attacks dating back more than 45 years because he will be too 'ill, tired, or hungry' to be in court.
Television entertainer Rolf Harris will not have to attend his sex attack trial in person because of his age and health, a judge has ruled.
In what could be a legal first, the Australian-born 86-year-old will be allowed to follow proceedings at London's Southwark Crown Court via videolink from Stafford Prison, Judge Alistair McCreath said on Thursday.
Harris is accused of indecently assaulting young girls over a period of more than 30 years and a trial lasting around six weeks is due to start in early January.

I don't know how anyone can be aware in advance that they will be too "ill, tired or hungry" to attend court!

Rolf Harris will face retrial over a ‘brazen’ string of alleged sex assaults on three women and girls.

A jury took just under a week to find the 86-year-old Australian not guilty of three of the seven alleged assaults said to have taken place over four decades, following a second trial at London’s Southwark Crown Court.

But now the disgraced children's entertainer will be hauled up in front of a judge for a second time.

I don't think this has been posted before - Vanessa Feltz talking about Rolf Harris and the shameful response from trolls about the unpleasant encounter with him.

Will he be sent back though if he's convicted on the charges currently being heard?

Well as he has just been released from prison after serving time for identical charges, I feel this headline is a bit misleading.
Also it would be more accurate to show that the jury was unable to come to a majority verdict, and this was the second trial on these charges (+ 1).   The first trial on these charges (+1) the jury was discharged as well.
They make him sound like an innocent man FGS         affraid
