Reports emerged last week that Manowar guitarist Karl Logan had been arrested in August and charged with six counts of third degree sexual exploitation of a minor. These counts reference offenses that took place between June 18 and August 2 of this year.
Manowar sorta addressed the issue in a very brief and non-descriptive statement at the time and that was that. Now details have emerged about Logan's arrest and the charges filed against him via an article in WCCB Charlotte.
Fair warning – what you're about to read is extremely unsettling and vile.
The warrants say Logan was in possession of several videos which depicted girls between the ages of four and 12-years-old engaged in a variety of sexual acts with unidentified men. Each video is described in graphic detail, including one scene where a girl age 10-12 “chokes and becomes visibly upset.”
According to Blabbermouth, under N.C. General Statute §14-190.17A, "a person commits the offense of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor if, knowing the character or content of the material, he possesses material that contains a visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity."
