Folk singer Roy Harper charged with sex offenses
LONDON (AP) - British police say veteran folk singer-songwriter Roy Harper has been charged with sexual offenses against an underage girl during the 1970s.
Harper, who has performed with acts including Pink Floyd, faces two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under 13, three counts of indecent assault on a girl under 14 and four counts of gross indecency with a girl under 14.
Police said Friday that the alleged offenses took place between 1975 and 1977 and involve one victim.
The West Mercia force says 72-year-old Harper is due to appear in court in Hereford, western England, on Monday.
Harper, who has released more than 30 albums, provided vocals for the Pink Floyd track "Have a Cigar" and inspired the Led Zeppelin song "Hats Off to (Roy) Harper."
