Rolf Harris To Be Out Of Prison In Six Weeks

Rolf Harris looks set to be released from prison in around six weeks time.

According to The Sun, the 87-year-old disgraced entertainer plans on rushing to his sick wife’s side when he is released from Stafford prison.

Harris will have spent almost three years behind bars with The Daily Mirror reporting he is now “counting down the days” until he is released.

He will have carried out roughly half his sentence if he is freed from the Staffordshire jail next month.

A source claims Harris hasn’t enjoyed life in jail “at all”, saying that he is “desperate to get out”.

“His wife Alwen is 85 and has been in failing health, so he wants to be reunited with her as soon as possible,” 

Harris was convicted of 12 indecent assaults against four girls between 1968 and 1986 and was sentenced to five years and nine months behind bars.

However, before he is released, he faces yet another crown court trial on May 15 over further sex offences

Harris was recently cleared of three sex assaults in February, and is set to have a retrial on three further charges where the jury was unable to reach a verdict, in addition to one new count.
