Now Rolf Harris is charged with abuse of girl as young as 7

Harris has painted a portrait of the Queen and performed at her diamond jubilee concert last year
Rolf Harris has been hit with new child sex charges including an alleged assault on a girl thought to have been only seven.

The entertainer and artist is already facing 13 charges of indecently assaulting two girls aged 14 and 15 in the 1980s and downloading child pornography as recently as last year.

Yesterday it emerged that prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to charge him with an attack on a child who was seven or eight when the alleged abuse happened in 1968 or 1969.

The 83-year-old has also been charged with molesting another 14-year-old girl in 1975. And prosecutors have added a further offence relating to an existing complainant, who was 19 at the time she claims she was groped by Harris in 1984.  (more...)
