Rolf Harris released from prison after three years

Posted May 20, 2017

Rolf Harris has arrived back at his home in Berkshire this morning, following his release from Stafford Prison earlier today.

Rolf Harris, who was initially imprisoned for sex crimes against minors in 2014, will be released on Friday, the court has ruled.

He's still on trial for four indecent assault charges involving three women who've accused Harris of groping them while they were teenagers in the 70s and 80s.

Judge Deborah Taylor told the jury that the former Animal Hospital host will now appear in court in person for the remainder of the trial, which opened on May 15.

This was relayed to jurors at Southwark Crown Court in London yesterday to explain why the married artist will begin attending the trial part-way through.

Harris has been in jail since 2014.

The four charges of indecent assault span between 1971 and 1983 - all of which Harris denies.

Jurors heard he allegedly told her she was "a little bit irresistible", The Guardian reports.

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

The woman said she was "shocked and confused" by Harris's actions. "She just wouldn't believe it because it was Rolf Harris", she said.

She told the court: 'I absolutely have not (fabricated evidence).

The jury was not told why he was in prison or how long his sentence was. Harris has denied all charges. Her cross-examination continues when the trial resumes on Monday.
