Rolf Harris, 86, has been cleared of three sex offences and has been discharged on the other counts
Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris, 86, has been cleared of three sex offences and has been discharged on the other counts.
Harris faced six counts of indecent assault and one count of sexual assault involving seven victims.
The offences allegedly took place between 1971 and 2004, when Harris was aged between 41 and 74.
Prosecutors claimed it was 'in his nature' to grope women, including young girls, in public places and he had been good at getting away with it for years.
But Harris denied the latest charges and maintained his innocence regarding the 12 counts of indecent assault he was convicted of in 2014.
The jury in the first trial 'got it wrong', his lawyer, Stephen Vullo QC, told the court.
The pensioner declined to give evidence at his second trial, instead silently watching proceedings first on video from Stafford prison and then later from the dock with a hearing loop.
