Rolf Harris, One Of The World’s Most Famous Cartoonists, Found Guilty On 12 Counts Of Indecent Assault

_75947453_fwbrkg9aRolf Harris, one of the world’s most famous cartoonists, thanks to his work in Australian and British TV over fifty years, his musical career and being given the chance to paint the Queen’s portrait, has been found guilty at Suffolk Crown Court in the UK on twelve counts of indecent assault over three decades, including a friend of his daughter from the ages of 13 to 19.

The judge has asked for a medical report into the 84 year old’s condition but has suggested this will likely include a prison sentence.

And, since the trial began, the police have received new allegations of a similar nature, which they are looking into.

The full list of charges can be found here.

Rolf Harris gained his fame in the UK with comedy and music shows during which he would draw cartoons, and launched bestselling singles playing on his Australian heritage such as Tie Me Kangaro Down Sport and Waltzing Matilda, as well as Two Little Boys, Jake The Peg and a cover of Stairway To Heaven. For many British comic creators, the TV show Rolf’s Cartoon Club was instrumental to their choice of career, and lately his work on veterinary programme Animal Hospital has also inspired a wave of veterinary trainees. Recently he painted the Queen’s portrait, a privilege offered to few, especially one not regarded as belong to the “fine arts”.

Harris will be sentenced on Friday.
