On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, As I Lay Dying vocalist, Tim Lambesis, pleaded guilty to solicitation of murder in the plot to have his wife killed. The man he solicited turned out to be an undercover cop.
I think we’re all glad this low-radar news is finally over with.
Lambesis now faces 9 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Formal sentencing will begin on May 2nd. He also faces a $2 million civil suit, filed in August by his wife Meggan for damages related to emotional distress and medical expenses, as well as attorney’s fees.
The remaining members of As I Lay Dying, seemingly in a lurch without a frontman, have not yet made a statement regarding Lambesis or their future as a band. We’ll keep you posted just as soon as we hear something.
