LATEST: Disgraced British rocker Gary Glitter maintained his innocence as he entered a court in Vietnam today (15JUN06) to appeal his child molestation sentence, insisting he's hopeful of drinking British beer soon. The 62-year-old singer, real name Paul Francis Gadd, was found guilty of molesting two girls aged 11 and 12 by a Vung Tau, Vietnam, court in March (06) and sentenced to three years behind bars. But his lawyer Le Thanh Kinh vowed ahead of today's hearing in Ho Chi Minh City to ensure his client not only has his jail term reduced, but is also deported back to his native Britain. As he was led into court Glitter, dressed all in black, reiterated, "I'm innocent." When asked how he would celebrate his potential deportation, the singer replied, "Have a beer." Le Thanh Kinh is expected to maintain the evidence against his client was "unreliable" and "unreasonable" because one of the young Vietnamese witnesses in the March (06) trial - an 11-year-old identified only as NG - had "never complained" of her treatment before the scandal surfaced in the press.
