Glitter Pleads Innocent

LATEST: Disgraced British rocker GARY GLITTER has protested his innocence on the opening day of his child sex abuse trial in Vietnam. The singer, real name PAUL FRANCIS GADD, repeatedly yelled "I'm innocent" and made the victory sign in front of the media frenzy before being bundled into the courtroom where a judge and two jurors waited to hear his plea. His alleged victims, two girls aged 10 and 11, were also present and repeated previous accusations in their testimony. Glitter's lawyer, LE THANH KINH, described proceedings in the private hearing, saying, "All the statements in the court from the victims were the same they made before." He revealed the prosecution demanded a prison sentence of three to four years for the former glam rocker. They also suggested he be deported after serving his term. A verdict on the private trial is expected tomorrow (03MAR06).
