Pedophile Gary Glitter could be released in a few months.
A VICTIM of pedophile Gary Glitter has expressed outrage at suggestions that the musician could be released from prison “in a few months”.
The victim, identified only as Diem, said today that the 77-year-old sex offender “will always be a grave danger to young girls.”
The news comes like the sun says the disgraced singer could be transferred from HMP The Verne in Portland, Dorset, to an open prison “in a few weeks”.
In 2015, the musician was sentenced to 16 years in prison for indecent assault on young women.
Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, was first to die in prison.
According to the sun, he could be eligible for release within a few weeks and full release by next year.
However, if probation officers believe he poses a danger to children, they may choose to keep him in jail.
Even if released, he will be subject to conditions and may be recalled until his 16-year sentence has been served.
He will also be on the sex offender registry for the rest of his life.
However, the prospect of Glitter’s freedom infuriated one of his victims in Vietnam, where the singer had previously been jailed for child sex offenses.
The woman, now 26, who was sexually assaulted by Glitter when she was 10 in the Southeast Asian country, said the sun: “It will always be a horrible risk for young children.”
“It’s horrible to think that he might be free soon, despite being halfway around the world from me.”
Glitter was sentenced to UK prison in 2015 for sexually abusing three young girls between 1975 and 1980.
He categorically denied having done so. However, after a trial he was found guilty and punished for attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault and one count of having sex with a girl under the age of 18. 13 years.
According to the court, Glitter was at the peak of his pop star success when he attacked two of the girls, aged 12 and 13, after inviting them backstage in his dressing room.
In 1975, her youngest victim was under 10 when he snuck into bed and attempted to rape her.
His pedophilia was discovered in 1997, when it was discovered with 4,000 photographs of child sexual abuse.
In the 1970s, he was also charged, but acquitted, of sexual behavior with an underage woman.
Glitter was deported from Cambodia on suspicion of child sexual abuse before settling in Vietnam.
In 2006, he was sentenced to prison in Vietnam for abusing two children, aged 11 and 12.
Glitter was extradited to the UK after completing his tenure in Vietnam.
He was subsequently apprehended in connection with Operation Yewtree, a UK-wide police investigation investigating allegations of sexual abuse against a number of prominent celebrities, including Jimmy Savile.
However, after serving seven years in prison, Glitter was officially informed last week by the governors of The Verne that he had been targeted for his transfer, according to the sun.
According to the article, Justice Secretary Robert Buckland is believed to have the power to veto the measure.
