Death to Glitter!

Gary Glitter is facing death by firing squad for having sex with underage girls in Vietnam, apparently where he moved to quite awhile ago. I guess it didn't work out for him nearly as well as Japan did for David Hasselhof. The money quotes:
The revelations come after two girls, aged 12 and 18 years old,
told the police they had sex with the former singer - real name Paul Francis
Gadd - at his rented home in the southern resort of Vung Tau in Vietnam. The
61-year-old former singer was arrested on Saturday at Tan Son Nhat International
Airport in Ho Chi Minh City as he tried to flee the country. Thanh
Nien (Youth) newspaper reported today that the two girls were invited to
Glitter's home, where he paid them for sex. The 12-year-old told police she had
sex three times with Glitter, who paid her £5.50 each time, the paper said.

In USD, that's less than ten bucks.

He paid the girls' families two large each, and the rape charge was not substantiated. This means no death by firing squad and a lessened sentence. He really got off easy (bad pun very much intended).
