Rolf Harris was considered one of the country’s best loved entertainers until he was accused of a string of historic indecent assaults. Unlike Jimmy Savile, he was still alive to be brought to justice. Originally from Australia, Rolf Harris became a television star in the UK back in the 1960’s. He would become famous for his TV programmes, music and art, even painting a portrait of the Queen for her jubilee in 2012. But in August 2013, his legacy and reputation lay in tatters when he was accused of numerous indecent assaults on girls as young as eight years old between 1968 and 1986. In July 2014 he was sentenced to five years in prison for his actions. We reveal Harris’ life and his crimes told by people who worked with him and those who represent his victims who fought so long for justice.
