As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis finally had his day in court today, May 16th, after a series of delays. Lambesis was sentenced to six years in prison after having pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. He was charged with the offense after attemping to hire an undercover detective posing as a hitman to murder his estranged wife, Meggan Lambesis.

A report from the sentencing running over at Radio.com has word that various As I Lay Dying bandmates were in attendance during the sentencing. The parents of Meggan and she herself also spoke during the proceedings, claiming that her life had “felt as fragile as a piece of paper that could float away at any moment.”

She also mentioned that Tim would repeatedly quote the “Total Recall” line “consider that a divorce” which was delivered after Arnold Schwarzenegger shot his fake wife in the film.

Tim is said to have wept before facing his wife and stated:

“I do feel deep remorse. I want to thank you. For her prayers, which proves you still have the heart that you do.”

Judge Carlos Armour handed down the sentence and disputed the defense’s claims that the steroids played a major factor. He argued that numerous individuals use steroids and do not plot to kill their wives. He went on to insist that in Lambesis‘ case it was a “something twisted inside a character” to want to commit murder.

Meggan Lambesis and the pair’s adopted children will receive 10 years protection from Tim. Tim technically won’t be serving a full six years however as he is receiving 48 days credit for time already served.

Lambesis still faces a $2 million civil suit filed by his ex-wife.

Prior to sentencing Lambesis broke his silence, giving Altpress.com an exclusive interview on the case and the events that led to it, including his steroid use, his faith, his relationship and much more.

A quote from that can be found below:

“I did fall flat on my face. I hit rock bottom. I lost everything. The trauma, the solitude: It made me the person I think they hoped I would eventually become. I know I have a long road ahead of me. I know that making amends will be a difficult process. But if they are open for it, this story of tragedy turning into redemption, it’s a story that’s just as much in their hands at this point as it is mine. They wanted to see me go through whatever it took to make me a good father. Now I have, and I’m not allowed to be a father.”
