Gary Glitter - Gary Glitter Struggles To Hear Judge At Preliminary Court Hearing

Disgraced glam rocker Gary Glitter struggled to hear what the judge overseeing his child sex case had to say on Wednesday (25Jun14) as he appeared in a London court for a preliminary hearing.

The reclusive British star, real name Paul Gadd, has been charged with six counts of indecent assault, one count of "administering a drug or other thing in order to facilitate sexual intercourse", and one of sexual intercourse with a girl under 13. The alleged offences date back to between 1977 and 1980.

During Wednesday's court date, Glitter, 70, was asked to confirm his name as he sat in the dock at Southwark Crown Court, but he seemed to suffer a problem with his hearing aid, prompting Judge Alistair MCCreath to ask, "Mr. Gadd, can you hear me now?".

The singer, who is hard of hearing, responded, stating, "I'm sorry, I can't", causing MCCreath to reply, "It sounded like you just did."

Despite the exchange, MCCreath allowed the rocker to leave the dock and sit with his lawyer, and he spent the rest of the hearing cupping his ears with his hands to help him pay attention to the proceedings, reports the Bbc.

The judge allowed Glitter to remain free on bail until a plea and case management hearing on 20 August (14).
