Sentencing Postponed for As I Lay Dying Frontman Tim Lambesis

Tim Lambesis

As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis will wait a little while longer to learn his fate. The vocalist, who recently pleaded guilty of initiating a murder-for-hire plot against his estranged wife, was due to appear in court today (May 2) to be sentenced, but the sentencing has been pushed back.

Lambgoat reports that the hearing was postponed and is believed to now be scheduled for May 16. It’s possible that Lambesis could earn up to nine years in prison, an additional four years of parole and a $10,000 fine for the infraction.

Lambesis pleaded guilty back in February to attempting to hire a hitman to kill his wife. The vocalist and his ex had separated at the time. The hitman turned out to be an undercover police officer, as the police had been tipped off that Lambesis had been soliciting to commit the act.

After the arrest, Lambesis was released on $2 million bail and remained under house arrest during the duration of his proceedings, with the one exception being the time allotted to attend physical therapy.

With the sentencing pending, Lambesis’ As I Lay Dying bandmates have moved on to another project, founding the group Wovenwar with Oh Sleeper’s Shane Blay. The group recently released the single ‘All Rise’ and they intend to have their debut disc out by late summer.
