I picture a scene where he's taping the Prison toilet seat musically, annoying fellow inmates, the rest, could lead to sexual activities. Which kinds? Glad you asked, but I'll hold this bit until a verdict comes through.

Remember when Sir Elton John was a controversial figure because he was *gasp!* bisexual?

Rolf Harris Update

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/201...iled-for-years

Rolf Harris has been sentenced to five years and nine months in prison on 12 charges of indecently assaulting four girls.

The 84-year-old showed no reaction when he heard the sentence.

Harris was convicted on Monday of 12 indecent assaults against four young girls in the UK between 1968 and 1986.

Justice Nigel Sweeney on Friday said the verdicts of the jury showed Harris "was a sex offender" during the period in question.

"You took advantage of the trust placed in you because of your celebrity status," the judge said at Southwark Crown Court.

"You got a thrill from committing the offences while others were present or nearby."

Justice Sweeney said Harris had shown no remorse for the crimes "at all".

"Your reputation lies in ruins," he said.

"You have no one to blame but yourself."

Harris will immediately be taken to Wandsworth prison in southwest London. He'll then be transferred at a later date to a lower-security facility.

The convicted sexual predator arrived at court on Friday prepared for jail with a colourful striped suitcase. He had the medium-size suitcase with him in the dock as Justice Sweeney handed down the sentence.

Justice Sweeney said Harris would serve half of that time and be released on licence.

Harris could be released in under three years.

After delivering the sentence the judge said: "Thank you, you may take him down."

Two dock officers then escorted the 84-year-old out of the courtroom.

Harris indecently assaulted a seven or eight-year-old girl in the late 1960s at a community centre near Portsmouth.

She'd gone on stage to get Harris's autograph but was "aggressively and forcefully" groped between her legs.

Harris also abused a teenage waitress at a celebrity event in Cambridge in the mid-1970s.

She'd been drawn out of a marquee by the sounds of dogs and saw Harris crouched down on all fours barking at a terrier.

He subsequently put his arm around the teenager before "firmly" groping her bottom.

The 84-year-old was convicted of a series of assaults against the main victim in the case who was a childhood friend of Harris's daughter Bindi.

The Australian abused her from the age of 13 until she was almost 30 - although he was only charged with seven specific assaults.

Justice Sweeney said: "I have no doubt you fancied (the victim) even at that young age."

Harris twice abused the teen at her own home in southeast London and, subsequently, on another two occasions at his residence in Bray west of the capital.

The victim was under 16 when the incidents occurred between 1979 and early 1981. Harris also indecently assaulted her in his own indoor swimming pool in 1984 when she was 19.

The Australian subsequently abused her for another decade.

"It was your crimes against her that resulted in her becoming an alcoholic for many years," Justice Sweeney said on Friday, adding that the assaults caused her "severe psychological harm".

The man who gave the world the wobble board was also jailed years for assaulting Australian woman Tonya Lee at a London pub in 1986 when she was 15.

Ms Lee had travelled to the UK with a youth theatre group when Harris asked her to sit on his lap and touched her crotch area.

The sex pest subsequently groped her breast and digitally penetrated Ms Lee outside a bathroom where she'd fled to escape the first assault.

Harris has 28 days from when he was convicted to lodge an appeal. His legal team has indicated it will wait to see Justice Sweeney's written judgement before making a decision on that front.

Earlier on Friday, defence barrister Sonia Woodley QC pleaded for a degree of leniency.

"He has a limited lifespan left and that will be diminished by a prison sentence due to the state of his health," Ms Woodley said.

"Every day, every month in prison, is going to shorten his life."

Personally he reminded me of Roman Polanski

It's his mate 'Peg' with the 'extra leg' I'm worried about.

But touching on something someone else said yeah he will probably die in jail now he's been sentenced to 5 years. The old cunt looks nearly dead already. He'll be in one of those fancy minimum security prisons out in the countryside though tbf. It'll be more like an old folks' home than jail.
