Randy Blythe Makes Bail; Will Remain In Custody

Posted by on July 3, 2012

Today (3) Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe posted 4 million Czech Koruna (approximately $200,000) in bail. However, he’ll still remain in custody in Prague until at least Monday (9) due to a two-day holiday in the Czech Republic and statutory deadlines. Blythe, being held on possible manslaughter charges for a 2010 incident that left a fan at their 2010 concert dead, has not officially been charged with anything. According to a local report, even after his release, which is likely to happen on Monday, judge Petr Fassati told the singer that he would have to remain in the country until he answers the charges.

The deadline for the prosecutor to make a decision regarding Blythe’s release is Monday, July 9. If the prosecutor opposes his release, than an official complaint would be sent to municipal court. If the court and prosecutor oppose his release, then the bail would likely be canceled and returned to him. A conviction would earn him up to 10 years in prison, yet there’s some pretty convincing video that would seem to disprove that he was directly involved in the fan’s death.
