    Rock star charged with baby rape

    Lostprophets rock star Ian Watkins denies baby rape charges





    Ian Watkins said he would fight to the end to clear his name



    The lead singer of south Wales rock band Lostprophets has denied 23 sexual offences involving children, including two charges of raping a baby.

    Ian Watkins, 35, of Pontypridd, and two women appeared at Cardiff Crown Court via video link.

    He denied a charge of conspiracy to rape another very young child and other offences including sexual assault.

    The women denied sexual offences against children. The next hearing is due to take place on Thursday.

    Charges denied by Ian Watkins

    • Two charges of raping a baby
    • One of conspiracy to rape another child
    • One of sexual assault
    • One of aiding and abetting sexual assault by penetration
    • One of conspiracy to sexually assault a child
    • 11 of making indecent images
    • Two of taking indecent images
    • Four of possessing indecent images
    • One of possessing extreme pornographic images involving an animal
    Mr Watkins denied a 24th offence, possessing extreme pornographic images involving an animal.

    The alleged offences date from 2007.

    Mr Watkins later issued a statement saying he would continue to fight to clear his name.

    The band, which has sold 3.5m albums around the world, was co-founded by Mr Watkins in 1997.

    The most recent album Weapons was the band's fifth and released in April last year.

    Uh, no. It's news because he appeared in court today.



    Why is he named, but the two women charged with him not named?

    It's true


    Lostprophets' Ian Watkins guilty of child sex offences



    Ian Watkins, singer of Welsh rock band Lostprophets, has pleaded guilty to a series of child sex offences including attempted rape of a baby.

    He had previously "furiously denied" the allegations.

    The 36-year-old from Pontypridd had been due to stand trial at Cardiff Crown Court alongside two women.

    Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted rape and sexual assault of a child under 13 but not guilty to rape. This was accepted by the prosecution

    I was reading about this on Sky News.

    Apparently the prosecution have a video of this sick fuck trying to rape a baby with the mothers consent. Both off their heads on meth. This is the reason he went guilty.

    This monster needs to suffer for a long time.

    Lostprophets Singer Admits Attempting To Rape Baby

    Tuesday 26th November 2013

    Former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to two cases of attempted rape of a baby.

    The former lead singer with the multi-million selling band made a series of admissions in a last-minute change of plea ahead of what would have been his trial at Cardiff Crown Court.

    Watkins insists he has no memory of what would have been key video evidence at the trial showing the abuse of his one-year-old victim, the court heard.

    The singer pleaded guilty to a string of sex offences he had previously denied.
    He pleaded guilty to 11 charges today, nine of which were unchanged and two of attempted baby rape, as opposed to rape.
    The disgraced rocker was originally charged with actual rape but insisted sex with the child did not take place during a drug-fuelled binge he says he was on at the time.
    The charges included sexually touching a one-year-old and encouraging a crazed groupie to abuse her own child during a sordid webcam chat.
    Prosecutor Christopher Clee QC told the judge that both of the attempted rape admissions were accepted.

    He acknowledged that there was an argument regarding what key video evidence seized from Watkins's laptop actually showed.

    "From the footage, there is an argument as to whether the full offence is made out," he told judge Mr Justice Royce.

    "If it is made out, it is minimal. There is so little difference between the full attempt and the attempt as to make no difference.

    "We are prepared to accept the pleas as tendered."

    He also told the judge that the prosecution had in mind the effect on the jury of watching the explicit video footage.

    Previous hearings discussed arranging counselling for jurors who might need it.
    Watkins will be sentenced on December 18.

    I really don't think I could have watched the video if I was on the jury. Would you be charged for refusing to watch the evidence I wonder?

    Apparently there's another singer from a band called Steps who shares the same name. Naturally, outraged cretins have been bombarding him with death threats.

    A bit like the morons from England that attacked someone's house because the owner was identified as a "Paediatrician".

    Well, "Steps" were certainly guilty of some appalling crimes against good musical taste, but that is taking it a bit far.

    So do I. And I hope the warders accidentally leave his cell door open more than occasionally.

    One thing I did notice... they mention a Skype conversation. Does that mean that one of them recorded it, or in fact do Microsoft keep recordings of conversations for legal purposes?
