    ROLF Harris has been found guilty of sexually assaulting four teenage school girls over an almost 20-year period with a jury unanimously declaring him guilty on all charges in a sensational conclusion to his long running trial.

    Harris barrister Sonia Woodley said she would today prepare a report on his medical condition, as she plans to ask for a significant jail sentence reduction on Friday on the grounds of his age and general poor health.

    This is in the nappy area. Probably should be moved to news and current affairs?

    This is a horrible letter. How can you pretend you did not know what you were doing was wrong? Saying crap like that and grooming a 13 year old? And how can his wife and daughter be seen to be supporting him?

    He's a millionaire. I believe His daughter fell out with him over it initially, but she now supporting him and still stands to inherit millions...

    I'm so disappointed and angry as I liked him.

    Then she's as guilty as he is. Disgusting.

    I'm not surprised he has been found guilty. He just has that "thing" about him that says pedo to me *shudder*

    That letter made my skin crawl. There was not one ounce of responsibility or genuine remorse. And so completely self absorbed - him seeking forgiveness, him hoping to love himself again - like a true predator, it's all about him.
    I'm sickened by the case in a similar way to the Robert Hughes trial. These predators, who spent their time being adored by a nation, believed it gave them some kind of carte blanche to behave dishonestly, illegally and reprehensibly.
    I have many views about justice and honestly believe too many people are sent to jail and that real rehabilitation doesn't occur in jail.
    However, to me, jail is exactly where these creeps belong. I don't believe in rehabilitation for sex offenders, especially paedophiles. I only believe in keeping them off the streets and preventing them from doing harm.

    Didn't surprise me, his choice of words in his song lyrics told how he disregarded other people. He has always come across as creepy and narcissistic.

    I had that same feeling I've thought that about a few people and it's always turned out to be right
