Ian Watkins was the lead singer of the UK band Lostprophets, hailing from the Wales area. The band achieved some success, having sold over three million albums. From an image standpoint, Ian Watkins fit the profile of a rock star, with his jet back hair, and distressed rocker style. But underneath it all, he was hiding some very dark secrets.

Apparently, UK paper The Guardian is reporting that thirty-six year old Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to a series of heinous sexual assault crimes. And the most disturbing thing is that most of these charges involve children. I won’t detail them here, but more can be read here.

Since these charges are apparently true, Ian Watkins needs to be locked up and locked away fast. It’s terrifying that a sexual predator like him would be put on a rock star pedestal.
