What has happened since the last AP article? Is this accusation believed to be true by most?

We'll see what happens I guess. I'd really love to find out he's not lying but you never know.

Since he was refused bail, most assume that they have quite strong evidence and is guilty.

The raping a baby is a little extreme, it could potentially be untrue (I wouldnt be surprised if it was true though) but how is he going to deny the four offences relating to possession and distribution of indecent images of children. I mean obviously they found those on him...

Well Mr Watkins the charges are fairly extensive so I wish you the best of luck but I have a feeling you're going down. Rest of the band to get a new singer and continue under a new name.

I mean, if this were all some monumental misunderstanding, I don't think they would waste their time holding not only him, but two other people for so long. It seems like it would be a waste of resources and these are serious charges. Unless his lawyers are absolute shit, he'd have at least been granted bail by now.

From what I have heard, he is innocent of the conspiracy to rape charge, but most likely guilty of the rest. Either way, the band is finished.

I don't know if he's "innocent" of that charge, but it would definitely be the hard one to prove out of all of them.

I still won't pass any judgement until we get solid answers. It is possible his computer was hacked and or stolen therfore allowing someone else to get the said images and distribute them.. But until we get answers from the court I guess we are all left to wonder.

Being able to have anyone he wants wouldn't change what a pedophile actually wants. They'd still choose the child.

Not that I'm saying he is
