Rolf Harris pleads not guilty to seven new charges

ONCE he was a national icon, now he's a national disgrace. 

Rolf Harris has plead not guilty to seven new charges relating to of indecent assault and one of sexual touching, alleged to have taken place between 1971 and 2004.

He appeared via video-link from Stafford Prison in the UK and told a judge in a London Court.

ABC reports one woman was blind, has cerebral palsy and had very limited mobility when she was allegedly attacked in 1977.

Prosecutors said it was a prolonged attack of about 10 minutes during which the woman thrashed her head about but could not escape.
