As most of you know, As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis was arrested last year for attempting to hire a hit man to kill his wife. Welp, apparently all you get for trying to murder the one person in the world you’re supposed to care the most about is 6 measly years in prison.  Does that seem a little low to anybody else?

Anyway, there’s a pretty thorough breakdown of the hearing and the testimonies here.

Lambesis also did an extensive and really interesting interview with those bastards* at Alt Press.  Read that one here.

*they’re only bastards cuz its a good interview and we weren’t the ones who did it.
