Jonathan Cook, frontman for pop-punk band Forever The Sickest Kids, was apparently arrested in January for selling counterfeit Rolex watches, he admitted.

A collector of antique automobiles and wrist watches, the Dallas-based, 29-year-old singer released a statement Monday (April 22). It reads:

I am writing this letter to apologize to my friends and fans for my recent arrest and charges against me for trademark counterfeiting, with attempted distribution of counterfeit Rolex watches.

Before being arrested, I was not aware of how serious such a transaction was and through my experience I have learned that it does not matter how or where I purchased the watches. Simply presenting an item for sale with a false trademark logo is a criminal offense, even if it is well known that the item is a fake.

I am now aware of the financial harm that the distribution of counterfeit property can cause to others, and that this activity is a very serious matter with serious consequences. As a result I will no longer participate in, nor support anyone that engages in this type of activity no matter what the counterfeit item is.

As a member of our band, Forever The Sickest kids, it has been my desire to be a positive role model to our friends and fans. As a result of this experience I would like this statement to be considered both informative and serve as a warning to other young people.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Cook

Meanwhile, Forever The Sickest Kids is set to release a new album June 25 on Fearless Records. The band will support the album by touring with the 2013 Vans Warped Tour beginning June 15 at Auburn, Washington’s White River Amphitheater, ending August 4 in the Reliant Center in Houston, TX.
