As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis went back to court today, July 18th, in front of the Honorable Judge Carlos Armour to request that the year he spent on house arrest be subtracted from his six year prison sentence as time-served. Judge Armour denied his request, ultimately deciding he was not entitled to the sentence reduction, because “The GPS monitor was not a condition of bail,” and that that means he was not technically on house arrest. It was stated that Lambesis was privately monitored, not by the sheriff controlling custody in San Diego County.
Found guilty of the charge solicitation of another to commit murder last May, Lambesis is to serve six years in prison. Most recently he was detained in the George Bailey Detention Facility in San Diego, California.
