Rock Singer Pleads Guilty To Child Sex Charges

(Classic Rock) Former Lostprophets vocalist Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to a number of child sex offences including the attempted rape of a baby. He had been due to stand trial starting Tuesday at Cardiff Crown Court, after previously having "furiously denied" the allegations.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of attempting to rape an 11-month-old baby and sexually assaulting a child aged under 13. He further admitted aiding and abetting a female, one of two co-defendants who cannot be identified for legal reasons, in the sexual assault of a child under 13.

He also pleaded guilty to several counts of possession of indecent photographs of a child, possessing extreme pornography depicting a person engaged in a sex act with an animal, and two counts of taking indecent photographs of children in 2007 and 2008.

But he did not plead guilty to all charges.
