Former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins will stand trial for being a pervert, it has been determined.
Tomorrow, work to select the 22-member jury begins, and jurors are being cautioned some of the evidence in the case will disturb them beyond what they might imagine.
Watkins and two broads stand accused of various counts of child sex offenses and were in court today ahead of jury selection.
The judge told jurors:
“Often members of the jury have to listen to or view evidence which is very distressing or unpleasant. This is irrespective of the guilt or innocence of the defendant. This case involves allegations of sexual abuse of very young children and will involve the viewing of very graphic material.”
The trial is tentatively expected to conclude by December 20; should the court need more time, the case will be suspended before resuming January 6.
I just checked with my magic 8-ball, and it says Ian’s fucked.
There is no way he’ll be declared innocent. Two dozen fucking sex offenses, including one for owning animal porn and another for trying to rape an infant?
Fucked, I tell ya — fucked.
May everyone in his future prison home learn of his offenses, and carry out prison justice on his pale ass.
