Former British pop singer Gary Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was ordered on Tuesday to pay over 500,000 pounds ($637,000) in damages to a woman he sexually abused as a child. Gadd, now 80, rose to prominence in the 1970s as a 'glam-rock' star but was later convicted multiple times for child sex offenses. In 2015, he was sentenced to 16 years in prison for indecently assaulting three girls in the 1970s. One of these victims, who was 12 at the time of the assault and rape, sued Gadd at London's High Court. Judge Amanda Tipples awarded the now 60-year-old victim 508,800 pounds ($647,730) in damages, including 381,000 pounds for loss of earnings, following a hearing in March where Gadd was neither present nor represented by lawyers. Gadd, who could not be contacted for comment, had his parole bid rejected earlier this year. His criminal history includes a 1999 imprisonment for child pornography possession, deportation from Cambodia in 2002 due to suspected sex offenses, and a 2006 conviction in Vietnam for obscene acts with two girls aged 10 and 11, resulting in a four-year jail term.
