Lostprophets’ Ian Watkins Pleads Guilty To Child Sex Charges


A year-long story that caught the scene off guard has taken a turn many fans feared for months. According to the BBC, Lostprophets‘ frontman Ian Watkins has plead guilty to a series of child sex offenses, including attempted rape of a baby.

Watkins, who previously claimed to have “furiously denied” the allegations, made his decision known in court this morning. He pleaded guilty to attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13, but not guilty to rape. The prosecution accepted this plea, but what will happen next remains to be seen.

Watson was originally charged in December of 2012 alongside two women who have remained unidentified in the press. We will bring you more information as this story develops.
