Gary Glitter ‘to take lie detector tests’ as proof of not reoffending on release

Gary Glitter faces being forced to take lie detector tests to prove he is not reoffending when he is released.

They are among a raft of severe restrictions the convicted paedophile, 78, will be slapped with on his scheduled exit from prison next month after serving half his sentence.

The disgraced glam rocker, who fears he could be thrown back in jail if he fails the polygraphs, may also be fitted with an electronic tag and have his web access restricted due to his child abuse porn conviction.

A police source said: “Scores of paedophiles have been thrown back behind bars after failing lie detector tests – Glitter will be sweating doing them."

The Government said in 2014, sex offenders out on licence will face some of the toughest supervision terms, including being forced to take polygraph tests with probation officers.

Months after the scheme was launched, 63 of Britain’s worst paedophiles were sent back to jail while they were on early release.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “Sex offenders released from prison are closely monitored by both the police and the Probation Service.”

Glitter was first jailed in 1999 for four months for possessing 4,000 indecent images of kids.

Then in 2006 he was caged for three years in Vietnam. But in 2015, Glitter was sentenced at London’s Southwark Crown Court for “depraved crimes” against fans.

He will be freed from HMP The Verne, Dorset, in weeks after serving half his 16-year sentence.
