He has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 and possession/distribution of indecent images of children. He is due to appear at a magistrates’ court in Cardiff Bay today (Dec. 19).

A spokesman for South Wales Police released the following statement.

“A Pontypridd man has been charged with sexual offences against children and is due to appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court today.

The 35 year old has been charged with conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a female under 13 and possession/distribution of indecent images of children.

Along with the Lostprophets rocker, police report that two women, ages 20 and 24 respectively, have been charged with similar offenses.
