Daughter of Rolf Harris backs bid to review sex abuse convictions



Rolf Harris’s daughter, Bindi Nicholls, has backed a petition calling for her father’s child sex abuse convictions to be reviewed.

Ms Nicholls says her 85-year-old dad, a convicted pedophile, is the victim of a press witch hunt because he was a high-profile celebrity.

She’s described her father on the online change.org petition, set up by a fan, as a kind, sweet, honest man on stage and off.

Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months in jail in mid-2014 for sexually assaulting four young girls in the UK between 1968 and 1986.

So far, more than 250 people have signed the petition, which comes as prosecutors are deciding whether to pursue further charges against the Australian-born sex offender.
