According to a breaking report from BBC News Wales, former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins (pictured center) has plead guilty to charges of attempted rape and "sexual assault of a child." He has not, however plead guilty to actually committing the crime.

We will follow up with further details as they become available. 

Watkins was taken into custody last December charged with several sex-related offenses including the distribution and possession of indecent images of children as well as "conspiracy to rape a one-year-old." 

In June, he pleaded "not guilty" to rape charges.
