Paedophile glam rock singer Gary Glitter is due to sentenced today for a string of historic sex attacks on three schoolgirls.

The 70-year-old will appear at Southwark Crown Court where he is facing a maximum of life in prison after being found guilty of having sex with a girl under the age of 13.

He was also convicted of one count of attempted rape and four counts of indecent assault after a three week trial in which he firmly denied the allegations.

One girl was younger than 10 years old when he crept into her bed and tried attacked her in 1975.

Glitter attacked two of his victims, aged 12 and 13, after inviting them backstage to his dressing room and isolating them from their mothers.

The 12-year-old, who had been drinking Moet champagne, was also taken to his hotel room before he subjected her to a prolonged episode of sexual abuse and had sex with her in 1977.

Towards the end of the decade he struck again, sliding his hand up the 13-year-old girl’s skirt as she sat on his lap in his dressing room.

Glitter is due to be sentenced by Judge Alistair McCreath, who remanded him in custody after the verdicts last month.
