We really hope this turns out to not be true because this whole story grosses us out.

New Found Glory guitarist Steve Klein is being accused of talking with a minor via video chat on an adult website.

Apparently, Steve had already been arraigned in December on charges that include 2 counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14, 3 counts of lewd conduct with a minor 14 or 15, 1 count of intent to commit lewd acts with a minor, and 1 count of possession of child pornography.

Steve, who was released without bail, has pleaded not guilty to these charges, and will appear in court again on March 20th and April 10th.

Meanwhile, upon hearing of Steve's charges, New Found Glory decided to part ways with the guitarist so he can focus on his legal troubles.

Steve's lawyer that Steve's chats were consensual and that he believed all the women he was talking to were of age, that none of these women are known and so their age cannot be proven, and that the child pornography charge comes solely from his alleged possession of these video chats.

We hope that these allegations turn out to be false, because it'd be pretty disgusting otherwise. We're kind of sick to our stomachs over this.

    they didn't kick him out of the band "so he can focus on his legal troubles"…they kicked him out of the band back in December the second they found out and were disgusted by him. Don't get it twisted and manipulate things.

    I'm confused. It was an adult website, yes? Then when the minor signed up, they had to have checked a box saying they were over 18. It sounds like the minor was lying about their age to him, and he thought they were 18. Either that or that's his cover story. :/

    IMO, If the minor did in fact portray themselves as of-age, then he shouldn't be in trouble. This is another reason not to engage in sexual activities online with strangers.
