Gary Glitter Found Guilty Of Sex Crimes

Paul Gadd — bka Gary Glitter — has been standing trial for what the BBC deemed “historical sex abuse,” and today he was convicted of having sex with a girl under the age of 13, attempted rape, and four counts of indecent assault. Gadd will be sentenced on February 27, and he could face life in prison.

Gadd denied all charges and supposedly attempted to portray himself as a victim throughout the trial, which is especially sickening considering the fact that the singer is 70 years old and all of the offenses brought to court were committed between 1975 and 1980. The BBC’s report is incredibly bleak — read it here.
