Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris has pleaded not guilty to a string of sex offence allegations involving children and a disabled woman. Harris, 86, appeared at Southwark Crown Court via videolink to deny seven counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault against seven complainants aged between 12 and 27 at the time of the alleged offences, between 1971 and 2004.
Harris is accused of molesting a girl under the age of 14 at BBC Television Centre in London over the Christmas period in 1983. He is accused of two further indecent assault allegations involving children under the age of 14 at the Lyceum Theatre in London in 1971 and Radio Victory in Portsmouth in 1977. The former TV personality is also accused of indecently assaulting a disabled woman at a London hospital in 1977.
Harris, who is currently serving a five-year and nine-month sentence after being found guilty of 22 counts of indecent assault against victims as young as seven, is due to stand trial to face the new allegations in January 2017.
