(Original  GTC Article 1 August 2013 here.)

Loudwire.com is reporting that founding member and vocalist of As I Lay Dying, Tim Lambesis,  is do back in court in Vista, Ca on Murder For hire charges in connections with Lambesis trying to hire someone (an undercover cop) to kill his wife.

These charges have shocked, I tell ya SHOCKED, the fans of this top of their genre metalcore band as well as the rest of the rock community. 

This is a horribly sad story that has fascinated me from the get-go. Now it seems it has come to the obvious conclusion. Tim Lambesis has pleaded guilty to the charges against him. 

From Blillboard:

The heavy metal singer, who earlier denied the charge, entered the plea at a Vista, Calif. courthouse and now faces nine years in prison for the attempted hit. Lambesis was arrested in May 2013 after prosecutors said he met with a sheriff’s deputy posing as a hit man — dubbed “Red” — and handed over $1,000 and his wife’s address and front door security code.
The prosecutor in the case said Lambesis agreed to pay $20,000 for the job and was asked to confirm that he wanted his wife, Meggan, dead. “Yes, that’s exactly what I want,” he said, according to Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso.
The articlegoes on to talk about steroids be the possible cause for Lambesis’ not so brilliant chain of actions and schemes. Fantastic. Ultimately the true sadness and concern is how his ex-wife and three adopted children will be able to move on from all this insanity. 

Sentencing hearing will be held 2 May 2014.
Now, have a look at other infamous rocker’s who found themselves in trouble with the law…

Sid Vicious: 1978, Mr. Vicious was charged with murder after the death of gal-pal Nancy Spungen. Made for a great film but we’ll never know the truth since this Sex Pistol pulled 
the tag of his own mattress and died of an overdose in early 1979 before the trial could run its course. 

Ozzy: 1982, Mr. Osbourne took a sickening pee-pee all over the Alamo and made every Texan want to kill   have him arrested! He was drunk and dressed as a woman so that makes okie-dokie in the end. He paid his dues to society when he married Sharon. 

GG Allin: Name a year, he was a disgusting human. That’s all.

Chuck Berry: 1959, Johnny Law charged the Johnny B. Goode singer with crimes relating to transporting a minor across state line Immoral Purposes. He spent about 1 1/2 tears behind bars.

Varg Vikernes: 1993, he murdered Mayhem guitarist Euronymous by stabbing him 23 times. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison by a Norwegian court.
2013, Mr. Happy Go Lucky and his wife were arrested on suspicion of “plotting a massacre”.
