Rolf Harris to be released from prison ahead of court appearance

Rolf Harris will be released from jail after being granted bail on groping charges he's on trial for in a London court.

"He was called "groper Rolf" in our house", the woman said under questioning by prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC.

The Australian television star, 87, has been appearing by videolink at Southwark Crown Court in London, where he is standing trial accused of indecent assault.

The woman denied that and told the court she "may have worded things differently" in her various statements about Harris.

"Yesterday following an application by the defence unopposed by the prosecution, I chose to grant Mr Harris bail in relation to the charges the jury are considering".

Harris put his arm around her and groped her breast twice before trying to grab her crotch, the court heard.

She said she told her sister and parents about the assault at the time but they did not believe her.

"He squeezed my breast really hard", she said.

The delay not only keeps the Chargers and Rams in a holding pattern for another year, it also adds some intrigue to Super Bowl LV. Pushing back the construction a full year also means a year of potentially historic naming-rights revenues that will be lost.

Judge Taylor granted Harris bail after it was sought by his barrister and unopposed by the prosecution.

"You airbrushed him out of your story from the beginning", he said.

She told jurors: "I was in shock because I couldn't comprehend what had just happened. He could have been my grandfather", she said.

After telling her father Harris was a "dirty old man" and had "a bit of a go", she said he replied: "you shouldn't have worn that tight pink jumper".

The jury has previously been told that Harris had already been convicted and sentenced for other offences in 2014.

But he put it to the woman that she had purposely not told police her brother was also at the festival.

She told the court: "I absolutely have not (fabricated evidence)".

"As a result Mr Harris will no longer be appearing in this court over the videolink following his release from prison".
