Australian family television star Rolf Harris has been found guilty of indecently assaulting four girls over nearly two decades, according to Reuters.
A jury unanimously found he had indecently assaulting four girls, some as young as seven or eight, between 1968 and 1986.
Harris, 84, a mainstay of family entertrainment for more than 50 years, is the latest in a string of celebrities to be tried for historic sex offences in Britain.
He is the biggest name to go on trial since police began a major probe after it emerged late BBC TV host Jimmy Savile was a prolific child sex abuser.
Harris will be sentenced on Friday (July 4).
Prosecutors claimed Harris, who once painted Queen Elizabeth’s portrait, was a predator who groomed and abused one 13-year-old girl for her entire teenage and young-adult life.
Harris said he had only ever had a consensual adult affair with the woman. He had denied all the charges.
A spokesman for the Harris family told Reuters they would not be commenting, in light of the verdicts.
