As I Lay Dying etc. frontman Tim Lambesis will have his first day in court tomorrow, Thursday, May 09th. According to information provided by sdsheriff.net, he will be arraigned at the North Division Court in Vista, CA at 1:30pm PDT on charges of solicitation to commit murder and conspiracy to commit a crime.
If eventually found guilty, the Solicitation of Another to Commit Murder charge alone is punishable by imprisonment in a state prison for 3-9 years in California. According to the record provided, Lambesis is not currently eligible for bail.
Lambesis was arrested without incident yesterday (May 07th) on the aforementioned charges in relation to an alleged murder-for-hire plot targeting his estranged ex-wife Meggan—with whom he has three adopted children. She is said to have filed for divorce from him this past September.
Lambesis was picked up yesterday after allegedly attempting to solicit an undercover detective to murder Meggan. Further details on the investigation, which the police began this past Thursday, are being withheld due to the ongoing case/investigation.
