Harris accuser texted husband 'I told you so,' court hears

When Rolf Harris' name came up in the wake of the Savile scandal, one of his alleged victims sent her husband a text message saying: "I told you so," Southwark Crown Court heard.

The woman alleges that the entertainer indecently assaulted her when she was eight-years-old, after she asked for his autograph at a community centre in Portsmouth in 1969.

She knew what he had done was wrong and threw the autograph away at the time, telling her husband of the incident years later, the court heard.

Harris denies all charges.
