Rolf Harris Is A Free Man

Found Not Guilty Again

Rolf Harris Is A Free Man

Rolf Harris has walked free from a London court, and says he wants to spend his final years in peace, after being found not guilty on four indecent assault charges.

A jury of 7 women and 5 men deliberated for 4 hours and 47 minutes, but failed to reach a majority verdict on four more counts of assault. It means he no longer faces the prospect of more jail time.

The jury in his second trial back in January this year also found him not guilty of three indecent assault charges but could not reach verdicts on four, which led to this latest retrial.

The 87-year-old has been told the prosecution would not seek a further retrial on charges he groped three teenage girls. He was released on bail from Stafford Prison on May 19 after serving time on previous convictions following his first trial in 2014.
