British prosecutors are charging former pop star Gary Glitter with eight sex offenses involving teenage girls, according to multiple news reports.

The charges against Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, are related to two women who were aged 12 and 14 at the time of the alleged offenses.

Those incidents reportedly took place between 1977-1980.

The now 70-year-old singer was arrested in October 2012.

Gary Glitter Charged with Child Sex Offenses

Glitter’s arrest was the first in a series of arrests under an investigation launched in the wake of a child abuse scandal centered around BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile.

Salvie is believed to have been one of Britain’s most prolific sexual predators, while Glitter has already been convicted on child abuse charges in Vietnam.


Best known for the hit "Rock & Roll (Part 2)," a.k.a. the "Hey" song, Glitter is scheduled to appear in court in London to face charges on June 19.
