The Downfall of a Once Famous Pop Star: Gary Glitter Recalled to Prison

Gary Glitter, once a famous pop star of the 70s, has been recalled to prison for breaching his licence conditions.

The 78-year-old had been released in February after serving eight years in prison for sexually abusing three schoolgirls.

Despite being closely monitored by the police and probation service and fitted with a GPS tag, he was caught trying to access the dark web, according to reports.

Glitter’s fall from grace began in 1999 when he was jailed for possessing 4,000 child pornography images. He was later expelled from Cambodia amid sex crime allegations and in 2006, was convicted of sexually abusing two girls aged 10 and 11 in Vietnam.

Glitter’s victims were girls as young as 12, whom he preyed on backstage in his dressing room. His celebrity status at the time made it difficult for his victims to come forward, as they thought no one would believe them.

His third victim was less than 10 years old when he attempted to rape her in 1975.

The Ministry of Justice had warned that Glitter would face some of the strictest licence conditions upon his release and that any breach would result in him being sent back behind bars.

The Probation Service said that protecting the public was their number one priority and that they would not hesitate to recall offenders who breach their licence conditions.

Glitter’s fall from grace should serve as a reminder that no one is above the law, no matter how famous or wealthy they may be.

The justice system must continue to hold individuals accountable for their actions and ensure that they face the consequences of their crimes.
