Lostprophets Vocalist Ian Watkins Charged With Child Sex Offences


Another rock star is in trouble with the law this morning. This time, the suspect is Ian Watkins, singer of Welsh rock band Lostprophets.

According to a report by The Guardian, Watkins has been “charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with female under 13 and possession of indecent images.”

Two women were also questioned and charged for similar offenses.

Watkins will appear before Cardiff magistrates (a judge, in court) on Wednesday.

Detective Inspector Peter Doyle, whose name seems to be perfectly matched for his occupation, says “I want to encourage anyone who has any concerns or information which they think may be relevant to contact us.”

He continued on to say that those directly affected with the alleged crimes are first in thought.

“Safeguarding children involved in such cases is always a high priority and as such measures have already been taken.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Operation Globe incident room on 0800 056 0154; or NSPCC on 0800 389 5347; or email operationglobe@south-wales.pnn.police.uk.

Folks over the water can call 00 44 207 158 0011.

We’ll be following the story as it develops.
