Karl Logan, former longtime star guitarist of world-touring heavy metal band Manowar, faces at least 25 years in prison after admitting in a federal courtroom in Charlotte Friday that he downloaded and kept child p*rnography.
The 55-year-old Logan was jailed after pleading guilty to two child-p*rnography counts, U.S. District Court records show. His sentencing date has not been scheduled.
Logan, who lives in Charlotte, was expelled from the band after his 2018 arrest by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police on six counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
The case was transferred to federal court, where a grand jury indicted Logan last year on one count each of receiving and possessing child p*rnography, according to court documents. Logan received the images by downloading them on the internet, records show.
Logan joined Manowar in 1994.
