Lost Prophets singer Ian Watkins jailed

He gets 35 years, which seems a little lenient considering. However, I still can't work out why the two women involved aren't named, despite being convicted.

I'm trying not to be melodramatic here, but I can't understand how anyone could have sexual urges like that and not top themselves.

Not for the faint hearted.

Because it would give away the identities of their victims?

I already know who one of the women are as I went to school with both her and her older sister. News like this travels fast.

Needless to say I know well enough not to reveal anything. She'll never be welcome back in Doncaster thats for sure. I just feel for her family and the poor child. :(

Isn't it split sentences? One received 17 whilst the other received 14 years? Add in the fact people serve around half their time now-a-days and they'll be lucky to do 5 years tops :doh:
