Ian Watkins, Lostprophets singer, pleads guilty to attempted baby rape
Charged with more than 20 offences
Ian Watkins, the former lead singer of British rock band Lostprophets, has pleaded guilty to a series of sexual offences, including trying to rape a baby.
Ian Watkins, 36, was arrested last December and charged with more than 20 offences, including raping a baby, conspiring to sexually assault a child and making indecent images.
He had denied the charges but changed his plea Tuesday at Cardiff Crown Court and admitted 11 offences, including sexually touching a 1-year-old, encouraging a groupie to abuse her child and making child pornography.
Watkins will be sentenced on Dec. 18.
Lostprophets — which formed in 1997 and had a chart-topping album in 2006 with Liberation Transmission — announced it was disbanding after Watkins' arrest.
