The saga that has been the Tim Lambesis trial has finally come to an end. The As I Lay Dying singer was arrested on May 7th 2013 on charges of attempting to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife. Unfortunately the hitman Lambesis tried to hire turned out to be an undercover cop. For the past year, we have heard stories from the defense of “the steroids clouded his judgment” and so on.
However, after reports of court transcripts surfaced last week, all signs pointed to the prosecution having a very case. Naturally because of all the mounting evidence, Lambesis worked out a plea bargain with the prosecution and he changed his plea to guilty today, February 25, 2014. According to Lambgoat, the crime carries a maximum sentence of nine years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Lambesis will be sentenced on May 2, 2014 when judge Carlos Armour will make the final determination of how many years he will serve.
The family of Lambesis’ estranged wife Meggan were present in the courtroom today, but have yet to comment. The other members of As I Lay Dying also remain quiet. If comments or any more details surface, we will have them right here.
In your opinion, should Lambesis receive the maximum sentence or should he serve less years because of the fact that no violent acts were actually committed? Sound off in the comments section.
