A British judge, Roger John Royce on Wednesday sentenced ‘Lostprophets’ singer, Ian Watkins to 29 year jail term for a string of sexual offences including attempt to rape a baby.
Watkins (36), pleaded guilty to 13 charges last month. The charges include making sexual advances to a 1-year-old child and encouraging a fan to abuse her child and making child pornography.
The Judge of the Cardiff Crown Court said the singer’s actions had “plumbed new depths of depravity” adding that Watkins must serve at least two third of his 29-year sentence, then spend six more years on strict probation.
Watkins, whose album, ‘Liberation Transmission’ topped the chart in 2006 disbanded in group immediately he was arrested.
