    Oh my god, I need these stories to stop. It took me a couple weeks to shake the Ian Watkins story.

    What is it with these sick people? I pray the details to this story aren't as bad as the Watkins case.

    Just to make people aware, the suits against him don't include physical contact between himself and a minor. Apparently he used some online adult cam site and they reckon some of the girls on it were underage but no one actually knows how old they are. Or so the official statement from his lawyer states.

    EDIT:
    Will be interesting to see how this turns out. If he's proven guilty he could be jailed for up to like, 27 years or something.

    This doesn't sound like anything even remotely on Ian Watkins' level, but it's still creepy as fuck. Good on them for throwing him out of the band for it.

    NFG have made a quick statement in regards to this now as well



    It'll be interesting to see what happens if he's found innocent. He's also not been put on the sex offenders register either, though if I'm honest I have no idea of how quick they are to put people on there once allegations are made.

    I'm also quite surprised that NFG are carrying on as a 4-piece. I wonder if Jordan will play guitar as well as sing now, or if they'll just have a touring guitarist.

    Horrible allegations. And this is sort of the case we were discussing on the Watkins thread. It's easier to kick someone off a band when they're not the lead vocalist. NFG can easily carry on with a replacement. Lostprophets did not have such luck (not to imply it was "better" that one of the other members was the paedo instead of Ian, it's horrible and undesirable on every scenario).

    To be honest, with the details Dedicated has given us, I'm less inclined to think he's some sort of pedo.

    In any case this isn't exactly Ian Watkins level fuckery.

    No one gets put on the sex offender registry until they're convicted of a crime. He hasn't had his trial yet. Making people become a RSO when it's just allegations would be a violation of innocent until proven guilty.

    This. It sounds like one of those situations where she says she's 18 but she's actually 16. Not that it makes it any better, but at least then he probably thought she was legal.

    Some 14 or 15 year olds can start looking attractive to the majority of men. Nothing out of the ordinary there. He wasn't even making contact with them and didn't know who they were. The biggest question is who the fuck is charging him? If he goes to jail it will be a shame. Just one more non-violent person in jail.

    Unless he was actually diddling early teens I don't see how this is severely punishable.

    Agreed.
    And it isn't like he "forced" the girls to anything. I don't know maybe I am just a bit more tolerable than the average person but this honestly doesn't sound that bad - if the allegations even are true

    If his defense is true, then this dude is just one stupid bastard. He risked his livelihood for... cam girls. LOL.

    So now I actually read what this is about, and it's silly. I hope they set him free.

    I assumed this would be the case but I just wasn't sure if you could get put on it then taken off if you were innocent or something like that.
