Rolf Harris to be freed from jail tomorrow

Rolf Harris to be freed from jail tomorrow

Rolf Harris has been released from prison, jail staff have confirmed.

His release from prison means he will now be able to attend the court in person, while on bail, for the remainder of the trial.

The court is now hearing evidence from the second alleged victim, who claims Rolf assaulted her at a sports event in Cambridge when she was 16 years old.

Harris denies four charges of indecent assault.

"She said she had been groped by Rolf in a taxi", he told the court.

Yesterday the victim, who nicknamed him "Groper Rolf" after the alleged assault, denied she had "fabricated" evidence against Harris.

Harris was released from Stafford Prison today.

But she said she felt empowered by Harris' conviction and began to feel "I might be vindicated".

The court heard from the 1983 complainant that on New Year's Eve that year she was invited with her sister and other children to a live screening of an entertainment show at the BBC Television Centre featuring Harris.

'I do feel strongly that men like Harris shouldn't get away with it'.

"I was in shock because I couldn't comprehend really what had just happened".

The jury was not told why he was in prison or how long his sentence was. Should Rolf Harris have been released on bail?

In his statement, the man said Harris' abuse had been "discussed in the family in an open way".

Harris was previously found guilty of 12 counts of indecent assault committed between 1968 and 1986 on girls aged age from seven or eight to 19. Her cross-examination continues when the trial resumes on Monday.
