Rolf Harris facing more jail time amid fresh allegations

JAILED Australian entertainer Rolf Harris could face more time behind bars.

UK prosecutors say the disgraced artist is to face seven further indecent assault charges against women and girls.

Harris, 85, will be charged with two counts of indecent assault of a girl under the age of 14 in 1971, 1977 and 1983 and four counts of indecent assault on a woman aged 16 or over in 1977, 1978, 2002 and 2004.


The ‘Jake the Peg’ singer is currently serving five years and nine months in an English prison, after being found guilty of indecently assaulting four girls in Britain between 1968 and 1986.

Harris is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on March 17.
