As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis has admitted to plotting to have a hitman kill his estranged wife

After months of a heated trial, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has officially pleaded guilty to one felony count of solicitation of murder in association with his estranged wife, according to an announcement from San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis issued Tuesday (Feb. 25).

Lambesis’ sentencing is set for May 2. The singer could be subject to as many as nine years in state prison.

Lambesis was first taken into custody last May and charged with attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife. The “hitman” he hired actually was an undercover law enforcement officer, which is how the police were able to charge Lambesis.

At the moment, Lambesis is out on $3 million bail while he waits for his upcoming sentencing. The singer must keep a distance from his wife and kids while on bail, and he also gave up his passport and is on GPS monitoring to ensure he stays in San Diego County.
