Gadd was convicted on charges of attempted rape, indecent assault and sex with a minor. His victims were between the ages of 10 and 13.

Playing under the stage name if Gary Glitter, Gadd had a string of hits in the 1970’s.

He was found guilty in a United Kingdom Court in 2015 and sentenced to 15 years behind bars but that was not his first offense. In 1999 Gadd was convicted of possession of child pornography, and again in 2006, Gadd was found guilty of sexually abusing two underaged girls in Vietnam and sent to prison for two and a half years.
