Lostprophets Singer Pleads Guilty to Child Sex Abuse Charges
“This investigation has uncovered the most shocking and harrowing child abuse evidence I have ever seen,” said Detective Chief Inspector Peter Doyle from South Wales Police (via BBC News). “There is no doubt in my mind that Ian Watkins exploited his celebrity status in order to abuse young children.”
The Welsh singer stood alongside two female co-defendants, both of whom admitted they willingly offered up their children to Watkins. All three will have to sign the sex offenders’ register, with sentencing set for December 18.
