Rolf Harris, the 84 year old entertainer, appeared at Southwark Crown Court on 6th May 2014 for the start of his trial for child sex offences.

He is facing 12 charges relating to four different complainants between 1968 and 1984. The complainants were aged between seven and 19.


The Offences Alleged

All offences are charged as indecent assault, alleged to have been committed under s14 Sexual Offences Act 1956.
