Last week it was announced that failed hitman hirer Tim Lambesis was seeking a reduction in his sentence, asking that the year he spent on house arrest with his parents count towards his planned six years of incarceration.

Radio.com is now reporting that the request has been denied by Judge Carlos Armour. An excerpt from the article follows:

Looking pale and grim with arms cuffed behind his back, Lambesis looked on as his defense attorney argued that his year with limited movement — only allowed trips to his attorneys’ office and medical appointments and to the bank — should count as time served. Prosecutor Claudia Grasso countered, “He’s not entitled to credits.”

Judge Carlos Armour stated the law is clear, that credits only apply to inmates held in lieu of bail; he described Lambesis’ status as electronic surveillance while out on bail. “The GPS monitor was not a condition of bail,” and so he was technically not on house arrest, the judge determined. According to statements in court, Lambesis was privately monitored, not by the sheriff who controls those in custody in San Diego County. Additionally, the judge denied the requested custody credits.

The session began with a review of the trial’s basic information. Lambesis was sentenced to six years in prison on May 16. He was arrested on May 7, 2013, the same day he handed an enveloped full of evidence (money and photos of his family) to an undercover agent posing as a hitman. Lambesis was in the middle of a divorce with his wife of eight years, who has since reverted to her maiden name, Meggan Murphy.

Lambesis' former bandmates have now formed new project Wovenwar, which will release a self-titled album on August 5th. You can check a song from the title, titled "The Mason," by heading over to this location.
