Rolf Harris to be freed from Stafford Prison on Friday

Rolf Harris court case

Rolf Harris has been released from prison.

The 87 year old former television presenter is now on trial for alleged indecent assault at Southwark Crown Court - where he has been appearing via video link.

It means Harris will be able to appear in person, on bail, when another, ongoing indecent assault trial resumes on Monday at Southwark Crown Court.

Speaking at Southwark Crown Court on Thursday, Judge Deborah Taylor said: "The defendant, Rolf Harris, is to be released from HM prison in Stafford tomorrow on May 19".

There are also allegations he touched a 13-year-old girl's breast after filming a children's TV programme, reportedly saying 'Do you often get molested on a Saturday morning?'

Harris denies accusations of groping the three women when they were teenagers in the years 1971, 1978, and 1983.




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

In his statement, the man said Harris' abuse had been "discussed in the family in an open way".

Harris, wearing a grey suit and dark tie, watched proceedings from Stafford Prison for the last time.

But she said she felt empowered by Harris' conviction and began to feel "I might be vindicated".

The woman said she was "in shock" afterwards and "couldn't comprehend really what happened". Harris has denied all charges.

But the woman said she later told friends and family about the incident whenever Harris' name came up or he appeared on television.
