    UK - Gary Glitter for child molestation, London, 2012

    70s pop star Gary Glitter has been charged with 8 historical sexual offences against girls between the ages of 12-14, during the period 1977-80. Prosecution dropped 5 other allegations.

    Glitter (real name Paul Gadd), will reappear in court June 19th. It doesn't look like he's entered a plea yet.

    Okay, to make it worse, I forgot I opened this thread and tried to open another one. But here's an update, anyhow.

    Former Brit pop star Gary Glitter ( real name Paul Gadd) 70, has appeared in court, charged with six historical counts of indecent assault, one of unlawful sex with a girl under 13 and one count of administering a drug to obtain sex.

    'The offences are alleged to have taken place in the late 1970s and early 1980s.'

    I think - but am not certain - these charges are a result of 'Operation Yewtree' which has resulted in charges being brought against minor celebs Max Clifford, Freddie Starr and undreds of allegations against Jimmy Savile, deceased.

    Next court date 3rd July. No plea entered yet.

    I saw Gary Glitter live but he never appealed to me.

    Corkscrew hair did, because I wasn't any square.

    T-rex, i used to watch top of the pops, Gary Glitter, Jimmy Savile. I don't agree with these historical trials or maybe i just envy that i was'nt groped or poked by a famous wealthy fella. It was a different back then, do you remember Jack Benny?? The songs about young girls and becoming a woman. I would much prefer that the children of todays abuse are helped. Now a days (hopefully) a perv will end up in jail, but since the punishment is severe, i believe its making pervs more violent and deadly jmo

    At least they've managed to nab an actual pedophile, in this case.

    A guy who's been banned from Vietnam (where he was jailed for sexual assault against two minors) and the Philipines for sex tourism with children is pretty much a shoe-in for having some valid complaints against him in the UK.

    Speaking of which, WHY was his travel ban lifted.. really, why any nation would allow a convicted pedo to travel there, I do not know. All international travel for convicted pedos should be banned, or severely limited!!!!!

    I agree with you, nao, especially considering that the vast majority of cases pursued have come to nothing, most accused are being exonerated with not guilty or never brought to trial.

    I think about the millions it's cost (never minds the stress and grief and loss caused to the falsely accused!!! and their families..) to prosecute a few 80 yr olds for purportedly squeezing somebody's boob in the 60's, and how much better spent it would have been doing just what you've said -- aggressively pursuing cases where children are being raped and forced into child porn, right now.

    And I think accusers who are *proved* to be telling falsehoods in these cases NEED to be prosecuted heavily.

    In Glitter's case, he is clearly a sexual predator. So was Jimmy Savile. But GG is just as likely to have actually raped young girls, or foisted himself on them. His behaviour since that era *should* be taken into account, because it shows he is an actual pedophile, and possibly there's some pattern behaviour there that could help the historic cases.
