Rolf Harris to face London court again on charges of groping teenage girls


Entertainer Rolf Harris is set to face a London court on four charges of groping teenage girls at public events in England between 1971 and 1983.

The 86-year-old will appear by video-link in Southwark Crown Court on Monday for a trial expected to last two weeks and involving three complainants.

Two of the indecent assault charges relate to allegations Harris groped the breast of a 16-year-old girl and ran his hand up between her thighs in the back of a taxi at a celebrity sports event in Cambridge in 1978.

Another charge is that he put his hand up the skirt of a 14-year-old girl and touched her on the vagina as she sought his autograph at a music festival in London in 1971.

The other charge is that he groped the breast of a 13-year-old girl at the BBC Television Centre in 1983 and said to her, “Do you often get molested on a Saturday morning?”

Harris has been granted the right to appear by video-link due to his age and state of health.
