Brittish Pop star, Gary Glitter has been sentenced to 6 years in prison over sex offences

Former British pop star Gary Glitter was on Friday sentenced to 16 years in prison. A judge in London announced the sentence according to a report by THR based on other media reports.

Glitter was last year charged with a slew of sex offenses involving teenage girls. He was recently convicted on six charges.

The charges against Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, were related to girls as young as 12, with the offenses happening between 1977 and 1980.

The 70-year-old former glam rocker was arrested in Oct. 2012 as part of the so-called Operation Yewtree, a national investigation launched in the wake of a child abuse scandal surrounding late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile.

Glitter is known for his hit "Rock & Roll (Part 2)." He previously spent two months in a British jail for possession of child pornography after a 1999 conviction.
