UK pop singer Gary Glitter has been arrested on eight charges of sex offense. On Thursday, CNN shared the news that he was charged with committing eight sex offenses against two teenage girls. This actually happened decades ago but he is just now being arrested on the charges.

The charges against him are six counts of indecent assault, one count of administering a drug to facilitate sexual intercourse and one count of sexual intercourse with a girl under age 13. This all happened back in 1978-1980 so it was over 30 years ago. That was a long time ago and it is unknown if anything has happened since then but if so he is not being charged with it at this time.

This is not the first time he has been in trouble for sex offenses. He did spend four months in jail for child pornography charges before but this was back in 1999. At this time, Gary Glitter will be waiting on court. He will appear on June 19 and then more information should be coming out.
