This. Fucking. Blows.
We had heard from various sources that something would be happening today with Randy Blythe’s legal case in Prague. We just didn’t expect the development would be so shitty.
Bail has been denied for the Lamb of God singer — on the one-month anniversary of his initial detainment by Czech Republic authorities.
According to The Gauntlet, the prosecutor has denied Blythe’s newly paid bail of $400,000, following a presentation of court documents yesterday in the Prague Municipal Court.
While bail was initially accepted, the prosecutor has again issued a challenge.
On Friday (July 27), the prosecutor will be back before the judge to give reason for the bail denial.
Then, the judge has five days to rule, and another five days for it to be written or published to the court.
At that point, the judge’s ruling would be final and unless charges are formally filed, Randy will be free to leave the Czech Republic without condition on bail.
Today, guitarist Mark Morton posted online that he “got a loooooong letter from Randy last night. He said not to worry, that he’s doing ok.”
