British Glam rocker Gary Glitter is facing even more sex-related charges, this time alleged sex crimes against two young girls. He’s already up against possession of child pornography charges stemming from an investigation launched last year.
According to the London Daily Mirror, the new charges against the 57-year old Glitter, aka Paul Gadd, involve indecent assault against a girl as young as eight between 1975 and 1977, plus three similar charges against a 15-year old girl for offences that allegedly date back to 1980 and 1981. He also faces an additional charge involving the older girl referred to only as a “very serious” sex offence.
Last year’s charges stem from a computer repair incident. Glitter had sent his computer to a shop for repair, and the shop staff allegedly spotted child pornography on his hard drive and notified the authorities, who then searched his three residences. This past March, he was formally charged with 50 counts of making indecent pseudo
photographs of children under the age of six.
Glitter’s lawyer told the Mirror that Glitter would “vigorously contest” the new charges and added that the latest allegations surfaced only after Glitter’s original arrest. The rocker is scheduled to appear in court May 18.
