HANOI, Vietnam - Disgraced British glam rocker Gary Glitter will have his appeal heard next month against a 3-year sentence for child molestation, a court official said.
"His appeals trial is set for June 15," said Bui Ngoc Hoa, head of the People's Supreme Court of Appeals in Ho Chi Minh City.
The trial would last one day, he added.
Glitter, 62, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison by a Vietnamese court on March 3 for committing obscene acts with girls aged 10 and 11 at his rented seaside villa and at a hotel.
He was arrested in November while trying to leave the country on a flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok, Thailand.
Glitter, a 1970s glam rock icon in Britain, has maintained his innocence and says he is a victim of a British tabloid conspiracy.
He was also convicted in Britain in 1999 for possessing child pornography. He served half of a four-month jail term.
I can't believe I am rooting for the commies...
They should also pipe in that obnoxious basketball staple theme song, Rock n' Roll Part II, into his cell 24/7/365.
You're rooting for justice.
Even commie countries have no time - or sympathy - for pedophiles.
He's responsible for that damn song? He should already be serving life...
Hanio Hilton, Popualtion YOU.
He had sex with pre teen girls. 3 years isn't exactly harsh punishment,
Of course we have some judges who don't give any prison time at all.
" 3 years isn't exactly harsh punishment,"
if he does hard time in a third world Nam prison he will probably be tortured and killed
"I put my pants on just like the rest of you - one leg at a time. Except, once my pants are on, I make gold records. " :-D
All the cowbell in the world couldn't make me hate that song less.
He'll also probably be sharing his Third-World cell with lots of cockroaches, spiders and snakes....
....plus he gets to enjoy tasteless, nutrition-less crap food every day .... 3 years will seem like thirty.
I love that line! My problem is that I always get weird looks whenever I say it. If I could do a better creepy Christopher Walken impression I think I could deliver it better.
"....plus he gets to enjoy tasteless, nutrition-less crap food every day .... 3 years will seem like thirty. "
yep if he even lasts that long
Wadn't that Gary Puckett?
Here's the line to practice with. Just remember to pause between syllables where the dashes are.
"I got a FE-ver . . . and the only pres-CRIP-tion . . . is more COW-bell!"
There once was a crooner named Puckett...
Five'll get ya ten that he boogies before the legal hearing.
