Teen: Rolf groped me on taxi ride

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEENAGER who claims she was groped by Rolf Har­ris in the back of a taxi fought back tears as she told a court of her “hu­mil­i­a­tion”.

The al­leged vic­tim told South­wark Crown Court the en­ter­tainer had touched her breast twice and later forced his hand in be­tween her closed legs leav­ing her feel­ing “very sick”.

Asked why she had in­cluded de­tails in court that had not been in her po­lice state­ment she said: “It’s not the sort of de­tail you tell to men you have never met be­fore.

“I am try­ing to tell the truth now.

“It was hu­mil­i­at­ing and it is hu­mil­i­at­ing to tell it in pub­lic.”

When asked if she had ex­ag­ger­ated in her mind the story she told the jury, the al­leged vic­tim replied: “No I haven’t, I re­mem­ber it very well.

“He’s not the only man ever to have had a go, but it was the worst be­cause of his celebrity sta­tus.”

Har­ris has pleaded not guilty to seven fresh counts of in­de­cent as­sault and one al­ter­na­tive charge of sex­ual as­sault.

The trial con­tin­ues. THE Univer­sity of Glas­gow of­fers a Homer Simp­son phi­los­o­phy course.
