Today (May 17), a judge will hear NEW argument regarding the bail amount for Tim Lambesis, whose bail is currently set to $3 million after being charged with trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife. Full details HERE!
Yesterday (May 6), Lambesis was granted a NEW bail review hearing in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse, according to the District Attorney’s office. The hearing is set for 1:30 PM (local time), before the Honorable Judge David Berry.
More details about the case are expected to surface, as attorneys will very likely be arguing their position before the judge, Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso is trying to prevent release of the defendant and Anthony Salerno (Lambesis's lawyer) is trying to get bail lowered to a reachable figure.
"Tim never had the intention to harm his wife, absolutely not,” according to his attorney Anthony Salerno. “This whole thing was a set-up by a scumbag snitch, and then law enforcement ran with it.” He has characterized the case as "entrapment."
As announced earlier this week, Lambesis's band AS I LAY DYING have been forced to pull out from the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. Here is a statement from the band!
