LONDON (AP) -- The former lead singer of British rock band Lostprophets has pleaded guilty to a series of sexual offenses, including trying to rape a baby.
Ian Watkins, 36, was arrested last December and charged with more than 20 offenses, including raping a baby, conspiring to sexually assault a child and making indecent images.
He had denied the charges but changed his plea Tuesday at Cardiff Crown Court and admitted 11 offenses, including sexually touching a 1-year-old, encouraging a groupie to abuse her child and making child pornography.
Watkins will be sentenced on Dec. 18.
Lostprophets - which formed in 1997 and had a chart-topping album in 2006 with "Liberation Transmission" - announced it was disbanding after Watkins' arrest.
