Disgraced Pop Star Released From Prison After Serving Half a Sentence for Unspeakable Crimes

Former British pop star Gary Glitter, best known for his 70’s hits “Do You Wanna Touch Me” and “Rock and Roll Part 2” which was featured in the 2019 movie “Joker” has been released from Dorset’s HMP The Verne prison in England after serving just half of a 16-year sentence for unspeakable crimes against children he committed in the 1970’s during the height of his popularity. Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd was jailed in 2015 after he sexually abused three young girls, all under the age of 13. Considering the time that had passed since the crimes were committed, Glitter couldn’t be sentenced to more than sixteen years, but it is unclear as to why he only served half of his sentence. Glitter has a long history of crimes against minors, landing him in jail for four months in 1999, and also getting himself permanently banned from Cambodia.

Glitter reached global stardom in the 1970s and 80s — but his success was short-lived after he was caught downloading 4,000 child pornography images in 1999, landing him in jail for just 4 months.

His string of pedophilic crimes continued into the early 2000s when he was expelled from Cambodia amid reports of sex crime allegations.

He was convicted of having sex with a minor in Vietnam in 2006. He was freed after serving 3 years in jail there and was ordered to register as a sex offender upon return to home soil.

In a bid to carry out his heinous crimes, Glitter separated the young girls from their parents by inviting them backstage at his gigs.

He then took advantage of them in his dressing room.

The heinous nature of Glitter’s crimes is unspeakable, and it’s insane that he only did four months for child porn images in 1999. Apparently, Europe isn’t or wasn’t serious about protecting children? Whatever the reason, he should have been locked up forever, or his fellow inmates should have done to child molesters what prison is famous for.

“It is difficult to overstate the depravity of this dreadful behavior,” Judge Alistair McCreath said at his sentencing, adding that he wished he could put Glitter behind bars for longer, but was constrained by sentencing restrictions for crimes committed in the 1970s.

Now out of prison, Glitter will be subject to license conditions which means he will have to follow a strict set of rules to serve in the community.

It’s ridiculous that this monster is out of jail. Could you imagine the outrage if R. Kelly were released in a couple years? Glitter now gets to live life as a free man, while his victims and their families have to live with the guilt and scars of his crimes. Hopefully Glitter’s time as a free man is short and he can go hang out with that pointy tailed fellow and serve the rest of his sentence.
