Ian Watkins of Lostprophets appeared in court this morning where he pleaded “not guilty” to 23 charges of sexual offenses against children. A final charge was made regarding pornographic images involving bestiality. This case is finally on trial after his December arrest.
This news is coming as a shock to the band itself who have since shut down their website. Lostprophets released a statement last year saying, “We find ourselves in a state of shock. We are learning about the details of the investigation along with you. It is a difficult time for us and our families, and we want to thank our fans for their support as we seek answers.”
