Rock singer Gary Glitter was charged with child pornography, months after police said indecent images were found on his home computer when he took it to be repaired.
The 53-year-old musician, whose real name in Paul Gadd, was charged Monday with various offenses, including making indecent computer images of children and possessing indecent photographs of children.
Glitter's lawyer, Henri Brandman, said the singer would be "vigorously contesting the allegations."
Glitter has sold 18 million records over his 25-year career. He is perhaps best known for the rousing song "Rock 'n' Roll, Part 2," played at many sporting events with its characteristic "Hey!"
