Tim Lambesis was in court today trying to get the time he was under house arrest as credits towards his prison sentence. The As I Lay Dying frontman was arrested and eventually convicted of solicitation of murder after attempting to hire a hitman to murder his soon-to-be ex-wife. Lambesis was to serve a six year sentence.
Appearing in front of Judge Carlos Armour, Lambesis was told that credits only apply to inmates that are held in jail without bail. Lambesis' ankle bracelet and house arrest was not a condition of the bail. The monitoring was not done by the Sheriff's office therefore it wouldn't count towards custody credits. The monitoring was likely a condition set by the bail bondsmen Lambesis hired.
According to Radio.com, Lambesis was most recently housed at the George F. Bailey Detention Facility in San Diego, CA. His estranged ex-wife, Meggan was not in attendance nor were any of his former bandmates. Radio.com reports that Meggan's parents, however, were in attendance.
Hopefully, this is the last we hear from this case for the foreseeable future.
