As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has spent the better part of May in a San Diego jail after being arrested on May 7th for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his wife. The supposed hitman ended up being an undercover cop. Lambesis eventually plead not guilty to one count of solicitation of murder with a $2 million dollar bail set .
As of 6:34pm this evening, May 30th, Lambesis is no longer in custody.
The San Diego Sheriff's Department has an email alert system sent an alert that Lambesis was released as of 6:34pm eastern time.
Indeed, a look up on the San Diego Sheriff's Department website shows that Lambesis stated "the person you are searching for is not in our custody."
I personally called the San Diego County Jail and an operator confirmed to me that Lambesis was released on bond after looking it up in their internal system.
Previously, the judge ruled that should Lambesis make bail, which he has, he would have to wear a GPS braclet and could not leave San Diego unless he was visiting his lawyer. He was also ordered to stay away from his wife and children.
Lambesis' next court date was scheduled for June 10th. We will keep you posted if that changes as well as on any further info with the trial. Read all of our coverage on the Tim Lambesis trial here.
