This goes to show how deep of a hole someone dig their life into. This story is like an 80's underground comic book.

Ollie wasn't far off [shudder!!]:

Glitter Gets 3 Years in Vietnam Jail

By REUTERS
Published: March 3, 2006
Filed at 8:24 a.m. ET

VUNG TAU, Vietnam (Reuters) - A Vietnamese court sentenced British ``glam rocker'' Gary Glitter to three years in jail on Friday for molesting two 11-year-old girls, although he could be free by Christmas if he wins early parole.

``I'm innocent,'' the 61-year-old shaven-headed Glitter who now sports a white goatee beard, shouted after the verdict was pronounced following a one-day, closed-door trial.

But Judge Hoang Thanh Tung described in graphic detail the offences committed by the 1970s pop icon in the southern resort town of Vung Tau, drawing gasps from ordinary Vietnamese packed into the courtroom along with dozens of foreign reporters.

``The court pronounces the defendant, Paul Francis Gadd, also known as Gary Glitter, guilty of engaging in lewd acts with children,'' said the judge, dressed in a sober black suit.

The black-shirted Glitter, who was told to remove his red bandana at the start of the 25-minute hearing, was buried in a scrum of photographers -- most of them from British tabloid newspapers -- after his protest against the verdict.

He lashed out afterwards at an unnamed British newspaper he blamed for his troubles.

``It's a conspiracy. You know who. One of Great Britain's newspapers,'' he told Reuters as he was bundled into a prison van by 10 green-uniformed policemen.

Britain's top-selling Sun newspaper, which led the tabloid witch-hunt against Glitter to Cuba, Cambodia and then Vietnam, described his manner in court as a ``sickening show of bravado.''

Alongside a photograph of him flashing a 'V for Victory' sign with his fingers, it ran the headline: ``V for Vile.''

Defense lawyer Le Thanh Kinh said Glitter, already registered as a sex offender in Britain after a 1999 child pornography conviction, would be eligible for parole one year from the date of his detention, in November 2005, as is customary in Vietnam.

The time he has already spent in prison would be deducted from his sentence. The judge said he would be deported from the communist Asian nation after serving the sentence.

Glitter has 15 days to appeal but has yet to decide whether to do so, Kinh told reporters. ``That comes from him, not from me,'' he said.

Chief investigator Colonel Nguyen Duc Trinh said he had recovered 2,231 images of child pornography from Glitter's computer and 31 video clips, opening the way for prosecution by police in Britain if he ends up there after his deportation.

The files were ``mainly children making love to each other, or naked children,'' he told reporters. ``Biologically, Glitter is not a normal person. A normal person would never store such photos.''

Trinh said he thought Glitter might have had more victims.

British police, who can prosecute Britons for child sex crimes committed abroad, had questioned Glitter in jail and had been in contact with Vietnamese authorities, Trinh said. He would not divulge details of their discussions.

Glitter is likely to serve his sentence in his home for the past three months -- a two-man cell inside a windswept concrete prison, surrounded by AK-47-toting guards, mould-encrusted walls and coils of rusting razor wire.

The British embassy in Vietnam, which says Glitter has received fair treatment since his arrest at Ho Chi Minh airport trying to leave the country, made it clear that both governments were serious about punishing child sex tourists.

``UK nationals who travel abroad with the explicit intent to abuse children will remain the focus of UK law enforcement activity,'' a statement said.

Ordinary Vietnamese in the courtroom for the unprecedented trial felt Glitter had got off lightly. ``It's too lenient. It should have heavier,'' said 46-year-old housewife Tran Thi Gam.
