Rolf Harris stands trial in Southwark Crown Court for sexual assault charges
The Australian star, 86, faces six counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault, over a period of four decades.
The prosecution at Southwark Crown Court argued it was in Harris’ nature that he groped women in public places, including young girls, alleging he had been getting away with it for years.
Harris’ defence claimed he is innocent of the last charges brought against him.
Harris' defence denies all charges against the Australian entertainer
The most recent allegation is that Harris thrust his crotch at and grabbed the breast of a woman in her 40s, in 2004, after filming a TV show.
On the first count he is alleged to have put his hand up a 14-year-old’s skirt at a youth music event at London’s Lyceum Theatre in 1971.
He is accused of a similar offence in the latter part of the 1970s, where he allegedly put his hand up the skirt of another young girl approaching him for an autograph outside a radio station in Portsmouth.
Harris is alleged to have inappropriately touched underage girls
Another charge alleges Harris groped and “slobbered” over a disabled and blind woman in Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, in 1977.
A fourth alleged victim claims Harris groped her breast and touched her crotch through her jeans, on the TV programme Star Games in 1978.
On the fifth count, he is accused of sliding his hand under the breast of a 13-year-old while asking: "Do you often get molested on a Saturday morning?”.

The trial jury is still deliberating the case
The former TV personality was not present to give evidence during the three-week trial, but followed the first part of it via video-link from Stafford Prison.
As the defence case neared end, he was brought to court, by order of Judge Alistair McCreath, who said it was important Harris attended the close of the trial.
The jury, consisting of seven women and five men, retired on Wednesday at around 3:30pm.
