Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins, currently sitting in jail as he awaits his trial on his plans to rape a child. will be sitting there even longer. London newspaper Mirror reports that Watkins’ bail has been denied, and he’s to remain in custody until his plea hearing later this month.
The singer was arrested last month along with two women, 20 and 24, on conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child under 13. He was initially remanded in custody until March, but it looks like his attorney tried some legal wrangling. Thankfully that didn’t work out. He appeared at the Cardiff crown court via a video link from prison, a place he’ll probably need to get used to.
