Rolf Harris gives up on sexual assault appeal

CONVICTED child molester Rolf Harris has given up his fight to appeal 12 convictions for sexually assaulting four girls in the UK. 

The court of appeal originally knocked backed the television entertainer’s appeal in October and gave him 28 days to ask for a hearing before three judges, which has now expired.

The 84-year-old was convicted for inappropriately touching four girls between 1968 and 1986, including his daughter’s childhood friend, who he sexually assaulted numerous times from the time she was 13.


In October, British media reported more than 10 new alleged victims of Harris had come forward.
