GARY GLITTER: Disgraced Rocker’s Trial Under Way
Facing 10 counts involving sex with a 13-year-old, he’s back in court in London this week.
Gary Glitter‘s trial on sex abuse charges resumed today (Tuesday) in London. According to the London tabloid The Mirror, the “Rock and Roll Part Two” hit-maker faces 10 counts related to crimes allegedly committed in the 1970s and ’80s.
The charges involve giving drugs to “stupefy or overpower” a girl under 13 “in order to facilitate sexual intercourse,” as well as having sex with an underage victim. Another of Glitter’s victims was 16 at the time.
The performer, whose real name is Paul Gadd, is already a registered sex offender in the U.K., due to a 1999 child porn conviction. He was later convicted of child sexual abuse in Vietnam, which then deported him back to Britain.
