ex-New Found Glory member charged w/ lewd conduct
If you’re a New Found Glory fan, you may have noticed in December that guitarist Steve Klein exited the band with virtually no explanation. Well, the sad explanation has now emerged. Right before his departure, Klein had been charged with sexual conduct with a minor and child pornography offenses.
Specifically, Klein is charged with two counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14, three counts of lewd conduct with a minor 14 or 15, one count of intent to commit a lewd act with a minor, and one count of possession of child pornography.
Thus far, he has pleaded not guilty, and his next hearing is set for March 20th.
