Rolf Harris to appeal conviction

ROLF Harris is spending his days in his jail cell sketching other inmates and their families to keep them onside after anger at his apparently receiving preferential treatment from jail authorities.

Prisoners at the HMP Bullingdon in Oxfordshire were reportedly incensed after the 84-year-old Australian entertainer was given a job in the prison garden ahead of those who had sought the role for sometime.

Harris, serving five years and nine months after being found guilty of sexually assaulting four girls, had been offered money and gifts to do sketches but decided to do them for free.

Now prisoners call the sketch sessions “Rolf Prison Cartoon Club” after his hit 1990s TV show Rolf’s Cartoon Club. The sessions are done between 4.30pm and 6.30pm when prisoners in the jail’s E Wing are allowed to move between cells.

Many of the sketches aren’t just of the inmates but of their families as well with Harris using photographs to do caricature portraits for them.

“Harris has been overwhelmed by requests,” one prisoner told The Sun newspaper.

“He did four or five sketches within two weeks of arriving and now everyone wants one. The pictures are just 10 minute cartoon sketches but the inmates love them.

“Harris was reluctant at first but he wants to win them over.”

Harris was reportedly spat on and verbally abused in jail after two months ago being found guilty in Southwark Crown Court on 12 charges of indecently sexually assaulting four girls from 1968 to 1986. He is to appeal the decision.

His presence in the jail was also unsettled after he was given the gardening job shortly after arriving, jumping a queue of other inmates who had sought the plum role over the usual toilet cleaning duties.

According to one prisoner his sketches were a way to “curry favour” with his fellow inmates.

Rolf Harris is being nicknamed ‘Willy Wonka’ by fellow inmates because he gives them chocolate

Former Australian entertainer Rolf Harris has been dubbed ‘Willy Wonka’ by his fellow inmates.
   

JAILED Australian entertainer Rolf Harris is being called Willy Wonka by prisoners he is locked up with because he keeps giving them lollies and chocolate bars.

The convicted sex offender is serving a jail term of almost six years at HMP Bullingdon, in Oxfordshire, after a British jury found him guilty of indecently assaulting girls as young as seven.

The Mirror reports Harris has been providing sweets and chocolate to the inmates during games of dominoes.

And they’re not the only things Harris has reportedly been giving out. According to The Sun Harris has been handing out signed pictures to prisoners.

The pictures are so in demand that inmates apparently form a line outside his cell to receive one of the drawings.

Harris doesn’t get paid for the drawings and is said to have refused offers of gifts for them, including sweets.

Since Harris was jailed there has been speculation he would be targeted by other inmates, especially since he is a high profile child sex offender.

Just after he was jailed another prisoner tried to spit at Harris, which caused a brawl when another inmate became involved.

Although Harris wasn’t involved in the fight prison sources said he appeared shocked by what had gone on.

The 84-year-old has also been heckled by other inmates.

 If you are aware of any homeless/street kids that unfortunately ended up on the streets in Kings Cross anytime in the 1980’s then I ask that you pass this onto them.

If you are aware of inappropriate activities by Ian “Molly” Meldrum or if you attended any parties in the 1980’s that he was present at.

I ask that you contact #crimestoppers and pass any information onto them, you may hold an important piece of information, don’t remain silent, speak up.

Should just put him in a secure home where he cant get out . Or a cell.  Dirty old man.  His family are as useless as he is, letting him wander around as he pleases. 
And to think I once sat next to him all the way to London. Embarrassed Thank heavens I was too old for him LOL

He was actually a very nice person.  At least thats the way he came across to me.   Very respectable and down to earth, and didnt say or do a thing you could consider to be wrong or "off" .  Spoke well to the staff. Really couldnt fault him.  Bit of a shock whe "it" hit the fan and all the stuff came out about him.
