There are two schools of thought on this whole Tim Lambesis situation.
One school believes the As I Lay Dying frontman’s the victim of an elaborate setup, hatched by Tim’s estrange wife Meggan and her cop brother, and that when all is said and done, Lambesis will walk out of the courthouse a free man, exonerated on all counts.
Then there’s another school of thought that actually involves thought. That school knows Tim’s guilty as sin (police have him on audio tape, ordering the hit like it’s a cheeseburger — no onions), and always knew he was merely using his Christianity as a marketing tool.
Lambesis is temporarily out on bail (paying a $2 million bond, which doesn’t necessarily mean his parents actually coughed up $2 million to free him), but will be back in court next month.
A preliminary hearing date of July 10 has been set for Lambesis, who stands accused on charges he attempted to pay for his estranged wife’s slaying.
At the hearing, the defense is expected to show they have sufficient cause for the case to proceed to trial.
While none of the defense or prosecution evidence has been made public, early indicators from police are that Lambesis offered an undercover office, posing as a hired gun, cash and information to pull off the crime. Something tells me the case will go forward as planned.
As I Lay Dying have been forced to cancel two tours now because of this ordeal — one of them, overseas.
Lambesis was ordered to turn over his passport after his arrest.
His attorneys seems to be mounting a “The ‘roids made him do it” defense.
Lambesis proves one thing, folks. Just because you take steroids doesn’t mean you’ll automatically get huge.
