The Singer From Lostprophets was Just Charged With Conspiracy to Rape a One-Year-Old Girl

The UK nu-metal band's already shitty reputation was just completely flushed down the toilet.

Do you remember that UK nu-metal band Lostprophets? Neither do we, but their already shitty reputation was just completely flushed down the toilet.

Their singer, Ian Watkins, was just charged with six child sex offenses, one of which is conspiracy to rape a one-year-old girl. Watkins, who's 35 and a piece of human dogshit, hasn't admitted to the charges and was refused bail.

The offenses date from May to December of this past year. According to the BBC, Watkins is charged with the following: conspiracy to rape an underage woman, two incidents of engaging in sexual touching with young children, possessing "extreme" animal pornography, and the possession, creating, and distribution of indecent images.

According to his lawyer, Watkins will deny the charges, and Lostprophets has canceled an upcoming tour. At press time, the band's website is unresponsive.

We usually try to make jokes in our pieces, but this is so unbelievably fucked up that we'll just leave it at that. If these charges are proved in court, Ian Watkins gets our pick for 2012 human scum award. In case you haven't heard them, and feel like listening, here's one of their videos:
