Rolf Harris seeks to appeal abuse convictions
Disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris has applied to British authorities for permission to appeal against his convictions on 12 indecent assaults.
A spokesman for the British Judicial Office confirmed that lawyers for the 84-year-old had lodged papers at the Court of Appeal this week.
The artist and musician was convicted of 12 indecent assaults on June 30 at Southwark Crown Court - one on an eight-year-old autograph hunter, two on girls in their early teens and a catalogue of abuse of his daughter's friend over 16 years.
The court will now consider whether to grant permission for him to continue with his appeal bid.
