Gary Glitter, the unwitting king of Pedo-Pop, has again been jailed for sexual battery on children, but this could very well be for the last time.
Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was sentenced in England to 16 years for a variety of offenses, including attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault ,and one of having sex with a girl under 13. These most recent crimes were said to have occurred between 1975-1980. The BBC reports:
“Judge Alistair McCreath said he could find “no real evidence” that Gadd had atoned for his crimes.
The 70-year-old showed no emotion as he left the dock at Southwark Crown Court. Judge McCreath told Gadd it was clear his victims ‘were all profoundly affected’ by his abuse of them.”
Glitter of course is best known as the glam musician who wrote “Rock And Roll Part 2,” which inexplicably ended up being a ubiquitous song played during every sporting event. He also penned the now criminally ironic, “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah!).”
So just a friendly reminder to all you sports fans as opening day approaches: Every time you shout “Hey!” in between innings, you’re singing along with a despicably unrepentant pedophile.
