Lostprophets' Ian Watkins Guilty Of Child Sex Offences

Posted by - 07:49 AM on 11/26/13
After Lostprophets' vocalist Ian Watkins was charged with several accounts of child sex offences and previously "furiously denying" the charges earlier in the year, he has now plead guilty to the majority of offences.

Update: More detailed (and distressing) updates on the charges heard in court have been added to the BBC News page.

Update #2: ITV News reporter, Rupert Evelyn, is currently live tweeting the court proceedings. Be warned, although he is "heavily editing" the details, it makes for an incredibly unsettling read.

Some of these charges are absolutely horrendous. I just pray to God that the extremely detestable ones are untrue.

I guess not..

Just read this. I had trust issues in high school, so I turned to music. It was all a lie.

Teenage angst, but glad justice is served.

What a truly despicable human being. I used to fucking idolise him.

I can't even process why a person would do some of the things he's charged with.

Crazy. I remember the day I fell in love with rock was when I saw Last Train Home and Until the Day I Die on MTV in the morning before I went to school.

Question for all of you. Does this change the way you look at his music? I remember some people said in one of the earlier threads that they could no longer listen to Lostprophets music because of him.

Horrible, disgusting abuse of trust, and I hope that his pleading guilty doesn't mean he'll get out and have the potential to do the same again.
