Lostprophets Frontman Is Guilty of Attempted Baby Rape
The BBC is reporting that Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to a series of child sex offenses including the attempted rape of a baby. The 36 year old singer from Wales, who had had previously "furiously denied" that allegations, was due to stand trail at Cardiff Crown Court alongside two women. Last month, Lostprophets officially split up, releasing the following statement on their Facebook page: "After nearly a year of coming to terms with our heartache, we finally feel ready to announce publicly what we have thought privately for some time. We can no longer continue making or performing music as Lostprophets." The news that Ian Watkins had been charged with sex offenses against children originally came to light in December 2012. His trail was scheduled to take place this week and was expected to last approximately one month. An application to transfer the trial venue outside of Wales had officially been denied. In the lead up to the date, Watkins had reportedly been on suicide watch, with clinical psychologists recommending that he receive anti-psychotic medication.
