Lostprophets Frontman Ian Watkins Charged With Child Sex Offenses


Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 and possession/distribution of indecent images of children. Watkins was charged along two other women, aged 20 and 24, in the incident.

Watkins apparently appeared before Cardiff magistrates today and has been remanded in custody on the charges. If the‘s report is legitimate, the charges are inherently vile. According to the aforementioned publication:

“The Welsh rock star, whose band has sold over 3.5 million albums, is alleged to have conspired with a woman to rape a one-year-old girl, the court heard.

He also stands accused of two incidents of conspiring to engage in sexual touching with two young children; possessing, making and distributing indecent images; and possessing “extreme” animal pornography.

The conspiracy charges related to a period between May 1 and Monday, while the indecent images related to a period between August 12 and Monday.

Defending barrister Tom Crowther said his client would be denying the charges.

Presiding magistrate Alan Knight opted to remand Watkins – along with two women aged 20 and 24 – into custody.

The women, who face similar child sex allegations, cannot be named for legal reasons. All three will appear before Cardiff Crown Court on December 31.”
