Ex-LOSTPROPHETS Frontman Ian Watkins Faces Charges of Illegal Cellphone Possession in Prison
Five years ago, former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins was sentenced to 35 years in prison for sexually abusing infant children (to put it mildly), saying at the time in 2014, he did it for the LOLZ. The short version of Watkins' disgusting acts is that he was raping infants, conspiring to rape children and even blowing methamphetamine smoke in an infant's face to get it addicted to the drug. Thankfully, his band and family outed him as soon as they found out and the dude's in jail for 35 years.
Looks like Watkins is in trouble again for illegal use of a cellphone in prison.
BBC reports that Watkins appeared in court today via video link. Watkins is currently holed up at the high-security HM Prison Wakefield in Wakefield, England. He was responding to the illegal cell phone possession charge, which happened last year between March 4th and 11th.
Watkins pleaded not guilty to the offense. The trial is set to start on August 5th.
Watkins was back in the news in 2017 after he got a mother arrested, trying to allegeldy groom her so he could abuse her two-year-old son. She lost custody.
A report released in August 2017 stated that police could've stopped the abuse much sooner if they took the claims more seriously.
