Former cocktail star Gary Glitter found guilty of child sex offences


LONDON Feb 5 (Reuters) – Former British cocktail thespian Gary
Glitter, who shot to celebrity in a 1970s as a “glam-rock” star but
was after convicted of child sex crimes, was found guilty on
Thursday of indecently assaulting 3 girls.

Glitter, 70, whose genuine name is Paul Gadd, came to
prominence with a strike “Rock and Roll”, and became eminent for
his figure-hugging glossy china all-in-one suits and platform
shoes.

But his repute was broken after he served dual months
in jail in 1999 for possession of child pornography. He then
moved to Cambodia, though was deported in 2002 due to suspected sex
offences.

In 2006, a Vietnamese justice convicted him of committing
obscene acts with dual girls aged 10 and 11 and condemned him to
four years in jail. On his recover he returned to Britain.

On Thursday he was convicted of attempted rape, 4 counts
of faulty attack and one of carrying sex with a lady underneath the
age of 13, all in a 1970s. Gadd, who denied all a charges,
will be condemned on Feb. 27 during Southwark Crown Court.

“Paul Gadd abused his entrance to immature fans in sequence to give
himself a opportunities to attack and abuse his victims,”
Chief Crown Prosecutor Baljit Ubhey pronounced in a matter after
the verdict.

Glitter was a initial chairman to be arrested as partial of a
wider military review into accusations of chronological sex
offences by uncover business personalities triggered by revelations
that a late BBC radio presenter Jimmy Savile had been a
prolific sex delinquent for decades.

The broader investigation, codenamed Operation Yewtree, has
led to a self-assurance of several former high-profile figures
including maestro Australian hostess Rolf Harris and the
country’s best-known showbiz publicist, Max Clifford.
