After spending just under a year on house arrest with a GPS monitoring device, former As I Lay Dying member Tim Lambesis was given a six year sentence for attempting to hire an undercover police agent to murder his wife.

Radio.com is now reported that Lambesis is seeking credit towards his six year term for the time he spent under house arrest at his parent's home in California. The site reports:

Tim Lambesis, once singer for the San Diego metal band As I Lay Dying, and his attorney are expected back in court next week arguing that he deserves “custody credit” for the days he was on “house arrest,” after hiring a hitman to kill his wife.

“There will be a hearing on July 18th to determine if the time Lambesis spent on house arrest will count as credits towards his prison term,” prosecutor Claudia Grasso stated in an email. Tim Lambesis is expected to be in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse at 9:30 a.m. next Friday, before the same judge who sentenced him to six years in prison, the Honorable Judge Carlos Armour.

Lambesis, 33, was in the midst of a bitter divorce battle with his wife of eight years when he agreed to pay $20,000 to an undercover officer to kill his wife.

Former bandmate Nick Hipa - now part of the new project Wovenwar - also recently discussed the situation with Lambesis in an interview. Get highlights of that talk at this location.
