Manowar Guitarist Karl Logan Charged with Possession of Child Pornography
According to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office, the 53-year-old guitarist was arrested on August 9 in Charlotte, NC, and charged with six counts of third-degree exploitation of a minor. Those charges refer to a person who possesses visual materials that showcase the minor engaging in sexual activity.
Logan was taken to a local jail in August. His bail was set at $35,000 USD, and he has since released. It's unclear when he'll be due back in court.
Manowar have a farewell tour scheduled to kick off in 2019, as well as plans for a new album. However, they announced today that Logan would no longer perform with the band, and their tour and album will continue as planned.
