Rolf Harris, a British entertainer and convicted sex offender, has died at the age of 91

Harris was a popular television personality and artist in the UK before his career was derailed by allegations of sexual abuse

In 2014, Harris was convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault against four girls, some as young as seven years old, and sentenced to five years and nine months in prison

Harris continued to maintain his innocence throughout his trial and subsequent imprisonment, but his conviction was upheld on appeal

Harris's death has sparked mixed reactions, with some mourning his passing while others remember the harm he caused to his victims

The case against Harris was part of a larger reckoning with sexual abuse and harassment in the entertainment industry, with many other high-profile figures also facing allegations and charges

Harris's death also raises questions about how society should remember and reckon with the legacies of public figures who have been accused or convicted of sexual misconduct

Some argue that Harris's art and entertainment should be separated from his abusive behavior, while others contend that his crimes should be a central part of his legacy

The case against Harris also highlights the importance of reporting and addressing sexual abuse and misconduct, particularly when it comes to protecting vulnerable young people
