1. Rolf Harris to be put under suicide watch
After being found guilty yesterday of 12 charges related to indecent assault, 84-year-old entertainer Rolf Harris will be sent to Wandsworth Jail.
Each charge he was found guilty of carries a maximum sentence of two years. Judge Sweeney said, “In reality given the conviction on all 12 counts it is inevitable that the type of sentence that is uppermost in the court’s mind is a custodial sentence and he must understand that.”
News.com.au has reported that it is unlikely Harris will serve 24 years in prison, due to his age and a series of health complaints. Harris will also be on suicide watch when he is first admitted, as he has reportedly suffered from depression since his arrest in 2012.
2. Spectacular win from Aussie teen at Wimbledon
Australian teenager Nick Kyrgios has shocked the world, and beat the world number one Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in four sets.
The 19-year-old – the youngest man in the draw – beat Nadal 7-6 (7/5), 5-7, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 in under three hours last night.
“I was in a bit of a zone out there, it hasn’t sunk in yet,” Kyrgios said.
“I played some extraordinary tennis. I was struggling a little bit on return but I worked my way into it and I got that break in the fourth set. I served at a really good level all throughout the match so I was really happy.”
Kyrgios will now go on to the quarter finals.
3. Australian woman who was abused by Rolf Harris shares her story
Australian woman Tonya Lee has spoken of her ‘excitement’ after hearing that Rolf Harris was found guilty.
Harris abused Lee –a former child actress, who waived her right to anonymity – on a theatre trip that she attended during her youth. She appeared on A Current Affair last night and said, “justice was done”.
“I was so excited, I was like oh my God, I cant believe it I’m so happy,” she said. “I was so happy that justice was done, it was just amazing. What he’s done to my life is unchangeable.”
“It just shows the justice system does work,” she continued. “I can weather what ever storms come my way but you need to tell people this is what happened to you and this person can’t get away with it. I wanted to open the other door for other women to come forward. I wanted him to hear it, I wanted the jury to hear it … I wanted everyone to know what happened.”
British lawyers have also said that more women have come forward since the conviction of Harris, alleging that he abused them in the past. Law firm Slater and Gordon says approximately another dozen women have come forward with fresh claims.
