    Oh no - Rolf! Are all my childhood heroes baddies? At this rate they'll be digging up Johnny Morris for bestiality soon

    Granted I didn't read the story throughly this morning, but I've always read this type of thing as "you were around at the time, do you know anything about it?"

    Until I see a story saying he was arrested, I'm [perhaps wrongly] assuming innocence.

    Innocent until proven guilty doesnt seem to apply too much these days unfortuanutley.

    I thought that one was supposed to assume innocence until conviction.

    Anyway, guess this confirms those rumours from last year about Rolf being pulled in.

    It is, but with things like this it seem to be "no smoke without fire".

    Even when people are found innocent there's people who still think they're guilty.

    Does anyone know the scope of this investigation? Is it child abuse, or any sexual crime?

    Yes, @SpuffMonkey - innocent until proved guilty - don't go all DailyFail on us

    I think he has been pulled in because he was around at the time, as @X-13 says

    Indeed; seen Matthew Kelly on TV much recently?

    I don't want to believe it of Rolf though, I don't though I think my personal "I'm giving up on humanity" moment would be if Tony Hart's name got dragged into it.

    According to the news article in the OP, he was actually arrested rather than just being brought in for questioning. This means they must have some evidence which leads them to beleive he might be guilty, as otherwise they'd just bring him in as a witness/reference surely? I'm not saying he's definitely guilty (how could I know?) but the fact that he was actually arrested is pretty worrying.

    This is the second time he has been arrested, this time released on bail, his house was searched previously. It's nice to think that your childhood favorites were innocent and clean living, the reality is that were probably were not.

    As Jimmy Saville said "It was fun while it lasted!", now it's catching up on them all.

    Google images of Morph and ask yourself two questions. 1. Is he wearing any clothes. 2. Just how much touching is appropriate for a plasticine model?

    Technically, arrest !== guilt either... altho these days I think 'guilt' is determined by a quick glance at twitter trends anyways.
