Rolf Harris' prison term will not be increased after the Attorney General decided not to refer his sentence to the Court of Appeal.
Jeremy Wright decided against the move as he felt judges would not increase Harris' jail term.
The case was referred after numerous complaints that the five years and nine month sentence against the 84-year old entertainer did not reflect the severity of his crimes.
A spokesperson for Mr Wright said: “The Attorney General understands that his decision not to refer the case may be a disappointment to some people; however, he did give extremely careful consideration to this sentence and he concluded that he could not refer it.”
Although the Attorney General does have the power to refer sentences to the Court of Appeal there is a high threshold that means the original sentence must be well below what the judge could reasonably have handed down.
