Jonathan King, Gary Glitter

I really don't remember any of this.

BBC chief's apology to paedophile Jonathan King for writing him out of pop history

Remember Jonathan King? "It Only Takes A Minute"?
Now 66, King was convicted in 2001 of sexual assault on five teenage boys in the 1980s. He was given a seven-year jail sentence and was released on parole in 2005.

And not only Jonathan King, but remember Gary Glitter? Rock and Roll (Part 2).
He was shamed in September 2001 when he received a seven-year sentence for six offences against five boys aged 14 to 16, committed between 1983 and 1989.
There have been other charges against Gary Glitter also.

I don't recall hearing about things like this back then. Probably because people didn't pay attention, or mind. It wasn't always the "good old days".
