Former Lostprophets Singer Ian Watkins Sentenced To 35 Years

That’s it?

Man. If I’m going to ever try and rape a baby, I’m going to Wales to do it.

Just 35 years for keeping zoophilia, attempted baby rape, and child abuse? That’s nothing.

He’ll be a creepy old man by the time he gets out. I figured the courts — which just sentenced Ian Watkins, former frontman for Lostprophets — would make sure this guy died in jail. Let’s hope the prison guards spread the word around the block about Ian’s offenses. The inmates will make sure he doesn’t make it out of that prison.

Watkins was sentenced today at Cardiff Crown Court in Cardiff, Wales, for being a pervert.

Reports claim Ian will serve 29 years in prison with an extended license of six years — basically meaning the dude has been sentenced to 35 years.

He won’t be considered for release until at least two thirds of his sentence has been served.

Watkins, reports said, shuttered like a little girl as he was taken away to his new home. Meanwhile, cheers were heard from the courtroom as he was led away.

The court was told during the sentencing that Watkins made two phone calls from prison after admitting guilt to his crimes last month. In one of the calls, he said he planned to make a statement after his sentencing.

A second was to a female friend. He said:

“It was like either me go up there and say ‘Come on, it wasn’t that bad, nobody got hurt.’ I do my charm or do I end up making things worse for myself or do I just say I was off my head and can’t remember?”


In later talks, he said:

“I’m not a paedophile, I’m not. You know I plead guilty just to avoid a trial, not realising ‘Hang on, that makes me look a bit guilty’ but I would never harm anybody.”

Now, we just wait and see if a statement is released.
