Ian Watkins, the former Lostprophets frontman, has plead guilty to attempted rape of an 11 month old baby, sexual assault on a child under 13, three counts of sexual assault on children, six counts of creation or possession of indecent images of children, and one count of possessing an extreme pornographic image involving an animal.
Admission of guilt came at the last minute, right before trial.
Multiple female fans were also involved. The mother of the 11 month old baby plead guilty to helping him carry out the “attempted” rape in a hotel room. The two discussed blowing meth smoke in the baby’s face. The other woman allowed Ian Watkins to conjure up a plot to rape her daughter. Watkins also had a plan to turn babies into sex slaves using hard drugs.
He said he cannot remember much due to being on meth and other drugs.
Friends of Watkins said they called police years ago to tell them he was a pedophile, yet the police did nothing. His ex-girlfriend also reportedly went to the police multiple times, beginning in 2008. She told the Daily Mirror:
“I went straight to South Wales police then and made a complaint but they ignored me and said I needed evidence.”
South Wales police are carrying out an investigation of their response to the complaints.
