BRITAIN-ROLF HARRIS
Australian-born entertainer Rolf Harris sentenced to prison for sex abuses convictions

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 8:31 AM EDT
LONDON


Australian-born entertainer Rolf Harris has been sentenced to five years and nine months in prison for sexual abuse of young girls.

Following the sentence pronounced Friday, the 84-year-old now faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life behind bars.

Harris is a British entertainment stalwart who hosted television shows, painted an official portrait of Queen Elizabeth II and performed at her Diamond Jubilee concert.

He was arrested as part of a police investigation into sexual abuse allegations stemming from another celebrity pedophile scandal, and was convicted of 12 counts.

Harris' attorney, Sonia Woodley, citing his age and ill health, argued he'd already been punished and shamed. But British Judge Nigel Sweeny said Harris showed no remorse for what he described as a breach of trust.
