LostProphets Singer, Ian Watkins Sentenced To Thirty Five Years For Child Abuse
Former LostProphets vocalist, Ian Watkins, was today given a sentence of thirty five years for his sickening acts of child abuse, including the attempted rape of a baby. Twenty nine years will be spent in prison, with a further six on licence. His two co-defendents, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were sentenced to fourteen and seventeen years behind bars. The Welsh singer pleaded guilty to thirteen child sex charges at Cardiff Crown Court last month and the judge today stated that his actions "plunged into new depths of depravity."
Police are now working with authorities in the United States of America and Germany, as it is believed he may have committed similar acts in these countries. It was also revealed today that over 27 terabytes of data, around five times the size of the South Wales Police database, containing highly explicit images has been found in his home. He concealed his collection using encrypted files on an encrypted database, though experts from GCHQ, a British spy agency, were able to gain access to them.
