Gary Glitter — the Most Evil Musician of All-Time — has been charged with eight counts of sexual offense against two teenage girls dating back to the 1970s.
Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was first arrested by British police in October 2012 on allegations that he assaulted to teenage girls between 1977 and 1980. Now, according to Reuters, Gadd has been formally charged with four counts of indecent assault on one of the girls who was aged 12 or 13 at the time, “giving her a drug or other thing to facilitate sex”, and one count of sexual intercourse with a minor. He faces two more counts of indecent assault relating to a second girl who was aged 13 or 14 at the time.
“Having completed our review, we have concluded … that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Gadd to be charged,” Chief Crown Prosecutor Baljit Ubhey said in a statement. Glitter is due in court on June 19th.
Glitter was previously arrested and convicted in 1999 for possession of child pornography. Since then, he’s similar criminal charges in several countries across the world, including the UK, Vietnam, and Cambodia.
