Former Manowar guitarist Karl Logan has been sentenced to five and a half years in prison for possessing child pornography. According to The Charlotte Observer, Logan was sentenced by Judge Max Cogburn Jr. after originally admitting to downloading child pornography in 2019. Logan remains free at the moment until assigned a lockup by the Bureau of Prisons.
Logan was originally arrested in August 2018 and charged with six counts of third-degree exploitation of a minor. he pleaded guilty to two counts of child-pornography. Just a quick warning – what you're about to read is utterly vile. The arrest 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."
Logan played in Manowar between 1994 and 2018. He has since been replaced by guitarist E. V. Martel of the Manowar tribute band Kings Of Steel.
