ROLF Harris has been found guilty on 12 counts of indecent assault.
The 84-year-old TV star and world-famous children’s entertainer was convicted today at Southwark Crown Court.
He was accused of sexually assaulting four girls aged between seven and 19 over three decades, between 1968 and 1986.
Seven of the charges related to a friend of his daughter, Bindi.
The judge, Justice Sweeney, warned that given the conviction on all 12 counts it was ‘inevitable’ that a jail sentence would be considered.
The performer was released on bail until Friday when he will be sentenced.
The disgraced former ‘national treasure’ has experienced 50 years of glittering showbiz success, including the opportunity to paint the Queen.
He is being flagged as the ‘biggest scalp’ so far for Operation Yewtree, which saw the conviction of PR guru and Costa del Sol regular Max Clifford in May this year.
