Former MANOWAR Guitarist KARL LOGAN Is Facing Time In Federal Prison On Child Pornography Charges

According to WSOC-TV, former MANOWAR guitarist Karl Logan will make a first court appearance on child pornography charges as early as Tuesday.

Logan, 54, was arrested last August in Charlotte, North Carolina and charged with six counts of third-degree exploitation of a minor. According to arrest warrants, the offenses took place between June 18, 2018 and August 2, 2018.

The warrants say Logan was in possession of several videos which depicted girls between the ages of four and 12 years old engaged in a variety of sexual acts with unidentified men. Each video is described in graphic detail, including one scene where a girl age 10-12 "chokes and becomes visibly upset."

Logan's attorney, Brad Smith, told WSOC-TV his client has been "extremely cooperative with the investigation from the beginning, and he'll continue to do that."

Smith went on to say that there could be an explanation for the acts that Logan is accused of committing.

"You oftentimes do see with those that do end up pleading, there's a direct correlation to something that happened in their childhood," Smith said.

Following his arrest, Logan was reportedly released on a $35,000 bond.

A few days after Karl's arrest was made public, MANOWAR issued a statement saying that he would no longer perform with the group. He has since been replaced by E.V. Martel, who previously played in a MANOWAR tribute band.

Karl joined MANOWAR in 1994 as the replacement for David Shankle.

Prior to hooking up with MANOWAR, Logan played several bands in northeastern Pennsylvania, including ARC ANGEL and FALLEN ANGEL.

MANOWAR is in the middle of its "The Final Battle" farewell world tour.
