Ian Watkins loses appeal for reduced jail term

Contributed by alex101. Posted by johng (g+) on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at 10:35 AM (EDT)
Image Ian Watkins of LostProphets has lost his appeal. The basis of the appeal was Watkins asking for a reduced jail term. Currently, Watkins is serving 29 years in incarceration plus six years under license for offenses involving sexual conduct with infants.

Watkins, who was not at the hearing, was represented by Queen's Counsel (similar to a public defender) Sally O'Neil. O'Neil argued that because Watkins pled guilty to his charges thus preventing disturbing images being shown in court, he was entitled to a reduction. The judges disagreed with one judge stating that the crimes were "of such shocking depravity that they demanded a lengthy prison sentence."

Additionally, a woman who was jailed along with Watkins for aiding Watkins in is crimes, and who also was a mother of one of the victims, also had her appeal denied. That person, who is being kept anonymous under UK law because her child was a victim, was sentenced to 17 years in prison. She appealed under the grounds that she was immature when she committed her offenses, but was denied. A second woman, also involved in Watkins' crimes, did not appeal her 14 year sentence.

Interviews: Arnocorps

Posted by johng (g+) on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
Image The Alpine-by-way-of-California rock group Arnocorps is looking to correct a great injustice. You see, for the past thirty years, an Austrian actor named Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken ancient tales from the Alpine region, brought them to Hollywood and sold the plot to the highest bidder. The story of a man fighting against a beastly, physically superior opponent all by himself in a jungle? Originally from the Alpines. The tale of a man fighting against a younger, more advanced version of himself in order to protect a family he barely knows. Yup, from the Alpines. The epic of a poor, barbarian peasant who would be king -- you got it -- actually an ancient Alpine tale dating back to Pre-Christian Europe.

But, not only has Schwarzenegger used these tales for his own gain, he has corrupted them. What used to be tools for inspiration, tools for self-betterment, tools for gaining greater understand of the world, have been reduced to mere Hollywood schlock.

And that's where Arnocorps comes in. On their Alternative tentacles release of The Greatest Band of All Time, the band takes back these wonderful stories and restores them back to their true meaning -- all to a pumping, thunderous, heavy metal soundtrack. Because Arnocorps is on a mission to spread the Alpine legends and their messages of positivity, features editor John Gentile spoke to Holzfeuer, Arnocorps' frontman, about the album, the band's fitness program and what do to if you are attacked by the Predator.
