Rolf Harris death updates — Disgraced TV figure & convicted sex offender dies, 93, as crimes exposed in new documentary

DISGRACED former entertainer and convicted sex offender Rolf Harris has died at the age of 93, it has been confirmed.

Australian-born Harris was a family favourite in the UK for decades before he was convicted of 12 indecent assaults at London’s Southwark Crown Court in June 2014.

These assaults included one on an eight-year-old autograph hunter, two on girls in their early teens and a catalogue of abuse against his daughter’s friend over 16 years.

Following his conviction, Harris was stripped of his CBE – which he received after painting the Queen’s 80th birthday portrait. He was released on licence nearly three years later in 2017, had one count overturned but was refused permission to appeal others by the court.

His cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
