Randy Blythe’s Bail Doubled; More Prison Time Possible
Posted by Chris Harris on July 17, 2012 in News, This BlowsThings do not look to be improving for Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe.
Czech news site iDNES.cz claims a Prague Municipal Court on Monday dismissed the Prague State Attorney’s Office complaint against Blythe’s release on bail.
Unfortunately, the court subsequently raised Blythe’s bail by $200,000 — double what he’s already paid in bail.
Blythe remains behind bars nearly three weeks after being arrested for his alleged role in the death of a fan two years ago; Blythe faces manslaughter charges.
Martin Holub, a lawyer at Šafra & Partners, told The Prague Post that if bail is revoked, Blythe could be kept in prison for up to six months.
“The authorities will be concerned about him leaving the country and then having to begin extradition proceedings,” Holub said. “If, however, the appeal court confirms the decision of the previous court, Randy Blythe should be released on the day that decision is made.”
If that doesn’t blow, I don’t know what does.
The U.S. Embassy in Prague last week released a statement regarding Blythe: “The U.S. Embassy provides standard consular services to American citizens in need of assistance. We cannot discuss specific cases due to privacy concerns.”
