Roy Harper Found Not Guilty Of Child Sex Charge
. (Classic Rock) Folk icon Roy Harper has been found not guilty on one count of indecently assaulting an 11-year-old in the 1970s. Earlier last week, the 73-year-old was acquitted by a unanimous jury decision of indecently assaulting a 16-year-old in the 1980s.
But he could face a retrial after jurors at Worcester Crown Court failed to reach majority verdicts on two further counts of indecent assault, two of indecency with a child, and one of having sex with a child.
Judge Robert Juckes QC discharged the jury and gave prosecutors two weeks to consider whether to seek a retrial on the remaining charges. All relate to the 11-year-old. Read more here.
