Karl Logan: Former Manowar Guitarist to Appear in Court for Federal Child Pornography Charges This Week

0

Former Manowar guitarist Karl Logan, who was arrested last August on six counts related to possession of child pornography., will make his first court appearance “as early as Tuesday,” North Carolina’s WSOC-TV reports. If convicted, the 54-year-old Logan is “facing serious time in federal prison,” according to the report.

The 54-year-old Logan was in reportedly in possession of several videos which depicted girls as young as the age of four in a variety of sexual acts with unidentified men. He has since been freed on $35,000 bond.

Logan’s attorney, Brad Smith, tells WSOC-TV that the guitarist has been “extremely cooperative with the investigation from the beginning, and he’ll continue to do that.” Smith also suggested that “there could be an explanation” for Logan’s alleged crimes: “You oftentimes do see with those that do end up pleading, there’s a direct correlation to something that happened in their childhood.”

Since his arrest, Manowar have parted ways with Logan and replaced him with E.V. Martel, who used to play in a Manowar tribute band.
