Rolf Harris could be out of jail within three years

Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris was given a five year, nine month sentence overnight NZ time, but a Guardian report says he could be out within three years with good behaviour.

On Monday, a jury unanimously found Harris guilty of 12 indecent assaults against four girls — including one aged just seven or eight.

At his sentencing Friday, the judge made some jail terms concurrent and some consecutive, giving a total which was less than some observers had predicted. 

The bad news for Harris: Attorney General Dominic Grieve is set to review the sentence following immediate complaints it was too light.

One would hope bail is opposed

Claim action growing but I note he spent days putting his financial affairs in order - read attempting to put out of reach.
