Rolf Harris jury considering verdict in sex assault trial
Entertainer denies string of indecent assault charges against four alleged victims spanning 18 years
The jury in the sex assault trial against veteran entertainer Rolf Harris is considering its verdict for a third day.
Harris is facing 12 accounts of indecent assault on four women between 1968 and 1986, including an eight-year old girl and his daughter's friend.
The first alleged victim claims she was groped when she was about eight years old after she approached the entertainer to ask for his autograph at a community centre near Portsmouth between 1968 and 1970.
The second woman claims Harris touched her bottom when she worked as a waitress at a celebrity event in Cambridge, either in 1975 or 1978.
The third alleged victim is a friend of his daughter, Bindi, who claims she was sexually abused from the age of 13 while Harris was still married. The musician admitted they had sexual contact, but it did not begin until she was 18.
Overall, seven of the 12 counts that Harris faces relate to the third woman. Four allege that he indecently assaulted her when she was 15; two relate to claims that he performed oral sex on her against her will before she was 16; and one relates to an occasion when he allegedly indecently assaulted her in a swimming pool when she was 19.
The fourth alleged victim, Tonya Lee, who has waived her right to anonymity, said she was abused while on a tour of the UK with an Australian youth theatre group in 1986.
Harris denies the charges that span 18 years.
