Gary Glitter 1997-1999 CP Case
I'm doing some digging on CP cases, and am interested in a more detailed description of the Gary Glitter case. In 1997 he brought his computer in to be serviced, and CP was found on it. He was arrested in and 1999 found guilty and did some jail time.
Digging on the net finds all this, but only in very broad terms. Does anybody (especially our UK friends) know of any detailed case studies, police reports, court records, book chapters, papers, etc detailing the case?
The recent incident in Vietnam has brought all this back up again.
Traces Of Guilt by Neill Barrett dedicates an entire chapter to the subject case, including details of the analysis etc. Maybe there's an online version somewhere.
Please be sure to use the letters CP when referring to this subject, thank you. I've made the necessary edits to this thread.

Thanks FatRabbit… I've ordered that book.
His real name is 'Paul Gadd', (if you don't already know this) you might get more hits searching for this.
Andy I remember looking at his laptop down at A&S police HQ - afair the nasty stuff was all located in a folder off of root called \gadd - not the brightest candle on the cake
Lol - Even with all the publicity we still get 'glitter' jobs coming in.
Yeah… it's staggering… they never think they will be caught. They will be the one who gets away with it.
I have just finished the book by Neil Barrett and it was a blinding read. I am so looking forward to being able to experience such a rewarding set of challenges for myself, if I am so lucky. The book is an essential set of case studies for anyone wishing to pursue a career in digital forensics. Some of the situations he found himself in were very difficult, he however seem's to have coped with them objectively and preserved the impartiality of the expert witness with great selflessness. Buy it or as I did visit the library.
In relation to the CP stuff, a renowned expert Jim Bates (mentioned in the book) has a bit of an issue at the moment and I think it is well worth reading if one can be like Mr Barrett and preserve an open mind.

I got my copy of the book a few days ago, and started in the middle with the Glitter case. Impressive stuff. Barrett really addresses the issues. I highly recommend it.
