Charlotte, NC – Karl Logan, the former lead guitarist for the band Man-O-War is pleading guilty to downloading child pornography. The former guitarist faces up to 25 years in jail.
Heavy metal talks about a lot of things that parents might find disturbing. From the satanic iconography to the mention of drug use and the overall behavior of many heavy metal musicians, many find the industry leads impressionable children down the wrong path.
For others, they might be right. As the former guitarists (who was kicked out in 2018 following previous charges of child pornography) faces new charges.
His previous encounter has Logan with 6 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
While his trial date remains unknown, all contact with the band has been cut off.
Man-O-War is one of the most famous bands to come out of the 1980’s heavy metal scene. With big hair, clad in what appeared to be “fashion armor” the band became a staple for those looking to play Dungeons and Dragons in their parent’s basement.
The band often writes songs dedicated to war, “drinkin’ beers” and other awesome things, fortunately, none of the rest of the band likes to dabble in lewd acts with children.
While Logan has not physically interacted with any of the children, North Carolina law states that child pornography is an offense.
“a person commits the offense of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor if, knowing the character or content of the material, he possesses material that contains a visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity.”
Karl Logan is a resident of Charlotte and is located in the cities sex offender radar.
