Rolf Harris thought his celebrity status placed him above the law, police said, after the veteran entertainer was found guilty of indecently assaulting four victims.
"Rolf Harris has habitually denied any wrong doing forcing his victims to recount their ordeal in public," Detective Chief Inspector Michael Orchard said outside court.
"He committed many offences in plain sight of people as he thought his celebrity status placed him above the law.
"I want to thank the women who came forward for their bravery, I hope today's guilty verdict will give them closure and help them to begin to move on with their lives.
"Today's case and verdict once again shows that we will always listen to, and investigate allegations regardless of the time frame or those involved. We have received a number of allegations and these are now being considered."
