Former New Found Glory guitarist Steve Klein is being arraigned on multiple charges of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14.
The charges relate online video chats between Steve and some female strangers he met on an adult website. A statement from Klein’s attorney can be
viewed here.

New Found Glory also made the following comment:

“Upon our return from Warped Tour Australia, Steve made us aware of possible allegations that might be made against him.
At that point, not knowing all the details, we made the decision to part ways in order for him to deal with these personal issues.
Us 4 members of New Found Glory have given our entire lives to this band and will continue to do so.
We’ve been able to play all over the world for the most amazing fans.
We can’t wait to get in the studio to make a new album and we can’t wait to get back on the road! Just coming off the Parahoy cruise and a surprise
show in our hometown we are more inspired than ever! Thank you so much to everyone around the globe for always sticking by us. The future is bright.”
