Tim Labesis, the lead vocalist for the metalcore band As I Lay Dying, was arrested back on May 7th, 2013 for allegedly attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife Meggan Lambesis. He has appeared in court again to face those charges and has entered a guilty plea. He is currently facing a maximum sentence of nine years and a $10,000 fine.
NBC San Diego News quoted:
He wanted to know if maybe I could find someone to do it for him.
Lambesis provided the undercover agent with an envelope containing $1,000 cash for expenses, his wife’s address and gate codes, pictures of her and specific dates when he would have the children and thus, an alibi.
On top of that he will also face a $2 million dollar civil suit that was filed on August 2nd, 2013 by his now ex-wife Meggan. This is for emotional distress, medical expenses, punitive damages and attorney fees.
