35 years for Watkins
2013-12-18 by Philip Whitehead | 198 Comments
Ian Watkins, the disgraced former frontman of Welsh nu-metal group Lostprophets, was today sentenced to 35 years in prison after admitting to 13 separate child sex offences. He was sentenced alongside two mothers of children who turned out to be among the victims of Watkins' crimes. Investigations into other possible offences are ongoing with some offences thought to stretch as far as Germany and the United States.

More in depth details of the outcome of the trial can be found on the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-25412675

After admitting abusing children, including babies, in court the paedophile added: "I don't know what everyone is getting worked up about."

He also claimed he was not a paedophile but was pleading guilty to avoid a trial.

Watkins has been jailed for 29 years for sexually abusing children.

Watkins made two phone calls to a female friend from Parc Prison in Bridgend after his guilty pleas.

On November 27, the day after he admitted he was a paedophile, he said of the court hearing: "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?"

Discussing his possible sentence, he added: "I'm going to put a statement on [December] 18th now just to say it was megalolz, I don't know what everyone is getting so freaked out about."

Probably not. Dunno where he's gonna serve his prison term, but if it's in the US, he's fucked. Probably literally. From all that I know about prison (beyond the Hollywood bullshit), of all crimes, the ones that PRISONERS deem most unforgivable are ones dealing with children (child murderers/rapists/pornographers/pornagraphilics/etc.). Go to prison on one of those charges, and you're done.

We'd have heard a lot more if there was any genuine evidence they'd been in on it. Given that Watkins
always traveled on separate airplanes and stayed in different hotels to the rest of the group, I see
no reason not to believe them.

I've just read that report. I'm not particularly sensitive when it comes to gory details, but fuck

Wow

He says the whole situation is "megalolz". This dude has obviously lost all touch with reality. I hope his prison buddies rape some sense into him so he can at least suffer at some point knowing what a shitty human being he is

What's sad is he'll probably be killed/off himself within three months time and he doesn't even deserve that. He deserves to be raped and abused every day for his entire sentence and then fuckin tortured and bled to death on his release date

You all realize that there are a number of pedophiles that successfully survive their prison sentences right? They're typically kept away from general population inmates specifically because they're more likely to assaulted. It's not like he's going to go to prison and immediately be killed. Quit kidding yourself.

Well no, there's a good chance he'll die of natural causes or prostate cancer before then. But for real, not everyone who rapes a child gets murdered in prison. They would stop putting them in prison if that were the case, ya silly goose.

It's likely he might kill himself. He lost the "rockstar luck" to get away with what he did and
virtually all support from anyone outside.

or he'll learn to "pick" on someone his own size. he won't be picking though.

Yeah I just can't make sense of it. On the one hand, they say he's remorseless and humored by the whole thing. On the other hand, they placed him on suicide watch. Was the watch just a preventative measure? Was the 'remorseless' thing just a media trope to make him seem less human?

Well yeah not every child rapist gets murdered in prison but this guy isn't just any child rapist. He was a bit of a celebrity beforehand, the lengths he went to repeatedly with his sick shit, now he's fucking making jokes about it and literally lol'ing

his days are numbered. Sooner or later even if he doesn't manage to off himself, someone else will end it for him. There is literally no way this dude in this situation is gonna live 35 years in prison

As far as natural cause goes, it's not like he's an old fart or anything, he's 36. Plenty of time to get shanked

he gets a longer sentenced than most murders, which is completely wrong in my opinion as murder is a worse crime and should be punished accordingly. In the public eye what he's done is far worse than murder, which is frankly ridiculous. Murder should have a longer sentence than this, not saying Watkins sentence should be shorter but it highlights how lax murder is treated in UK courts

rape and sexual crimes are far worse than murder in my opinion. both are terrible crimes, but sexual
assault strips the humanity away from the victim, forcing them to believe they they are subhuman,
worthless, material objects that have no value except to be exploited for pleasure by other humans and
then forces them to exist as that broken and unfunctional person

basically, a murder ends a life, but rape stops a person from living

Not necessarily, after rape/sexual assault you do still have the chance of eventually coping with it and moving on. It wouldn't be easy, but it's entirely possible if the person really wants to.

You get no extra chances when you die.

agreed with hype, they're both awful and about as low as humanity can get, but generally, sexual abuse is worse

testament to this is the fact that "justifiable homicide" is recognized in law. there is obviously no such thing as justifiable rape

that's cos you can't rape in self defence

as devastating as sexual assault is to someone's mind I can't see how the ending of your entire life could be better, even if the intents behind the perpetrator could arguably be more twisted and evil. at least with sexual assault you might still have at least something

the criminal intent with rape imo is more sinister and evil than with murder. and the effects on the living can be worse than death. they're both horrendous, nobody said by rape's standards, murder is ok...

see this is what alot of people think. I personally think that ending someone's life is a far worse thing than sexual abuse. As Fish said someone can recover from sexual abuse but murder is pretty final. Obviously when it comes to sentencing there are a lot more factors to consider, and when children are involved any crime become a lot more serious in public perception. But it would be interesting to see if Watkins would have got more hate had he murdered a baby with the help of the mother

I agree with the first part (in many cases) but quantifying the effects of death isn't really
possible. Arguably there is no effect. With murder, absolutely everything is taken away. No chance of
recovery, no choice, no pain but no life either.

4chan has tracked down and caused the arrest of pedophiles in the past.

Anyways, this guy will not last. 29 years for a pedophile? A lot of pedophiles get murdered by inmates, and he's got plenty of time for an 'accident' to occur. Nobody's gonna miss him.
