Ian Watkins Files Appeal Over Length of Prison Term

Ex-Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins was sentenced to 29 years in prison, with six on license, so it was a total of 35 years, after pleading guilty to and being convicted of horrific sex crimes against children and babies. Yes, babies as in infants. We know, it's vile. The convicted pedophile has appealed the length of his sentence.
According to his sentence, the Welsh rocker, 36, must serve two thirds of the custodial term of 29 years before he can apply for parole, per WENN.
His lawyer has now filed a petition at the Court of Appeal in Wales. One would hope he is not granted any sort of lesser sentence since his crimes were utterly wretched and wicked. The singer hit new depths of depravity with what he did.
Two women, who were the mothers of two of his victims and are equally reprehensible, received sentences of 17 years and 14 years, respectively.
Watkins' crimes are unspeakable. They really are.
Lostprophets fans, how do you feel about the band and its music in light of the Watkins' case, trial and conviction?
