Tim Lambesis To Remain In Prison For A While; Steroids To Blame For His Poor Judgement - Details Available!
Yesterday (May 17), Tim Lambesis from AS I LAY DYING was hoping to get his bail amount lowered to an amount that he could afford in order to be able to leave prison. But Lambesis is stuck in prison for now. Lambesis was recently charged with trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife. Full details HERE!
UT San Diego filed a report from inside the courtroom reporting that Thomas Warwick (Lambesis' attorney) requested the bail lowered to $250,000. The request was denied by the Honorable Judge David Berry, who set the bail to $2 million dollars (instead of $3 million dollars). An amount that according to his attorney Lambesis can't afford.
During yesterdays hearing, Warwick also claimed that Lambesis began using steroids, which clouded his judgement. Warwick said that Lambesis had gotten into body building and eating healthy, and later began taking nutritional supplements as a paid product spokesman. At some point, he also began taking steroids.
Accorging to Warwick, "his thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use".
It was also revealed by the prosecution that the cost of alleged hit on Lambesis' wife was priced at $20,000 and that Lambesis was "very willing to pay that".
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!
