    HANOI, Vietnam -- British glam rocker Gary Glitter will go on trial March 2 on charges of committing obscene acts with two underaged girls in Vietnam, the presiding judge said Monday.

    The trial is expected to last two days, said Hoang Thanh Tung, who will oversee the trial in southern Ba Ria Vung Tau province.

    Glitter, 61, who won fame in the 1970s with such hits as the anthemic "Rock & Roll, Part 2" and "Do You Wanna Touch Me," is accused of kissing and fondling the two girls, aged 10 and 11, and "engaging in other physical acts" at his rental home in the port city of Vung Tau last year. The crime carries a prison sentence ranging from three to seven years.

    Think about that the next time you yell "HEY!" after a TD.

    I wonder if it'll get dropped from the Jock Rock compilations if he's found guilty.

    This isn't the first (or 2nd IIRC) that Me Glitter has been accused of molesting children.

    Well, Gary lucked out. A few months back I read about the impending trial, and he was being accused of child rape which, if convicted, would bring on a sentance of death by firing squad.

    feminine, made up rocker....maybey it should be renanmed pedi-glam or jailglam. At any case, Mr. Glitter will be spending his remaining years in the clink for his outrageous behavior.
