Tim Lambesis's Attorney Blames Steroids Use For Alleged Crime; Bail Lowered to $2 Million

Tim Lambesis isn't going anywhere. At the conclusion of the As I Lay Dying frontman's bail hearing earlier today, the judge lowered his bail to $2 million, which Lambesis' attorney claims is still too expensive for Lambesis.

Lambesis had plead not guilty to one count of solicitation of murder after attempting to hire a hitman to murder his wife.

UT San Diego filed a report from inside the courtroom reporting that the defense requested the bail be lowered to $250,000 but Judge David Berry would only agree to lower it to $2 million.

During his appeal, Warwick also claimed that Lambesis began using steroids, which clouded his judgement:

Thomas Warwick, the musician’s lawyer, said his client had gotten into body building and eating healthy, and later began taking nutritional supplements as a paid product spokesman. At some point, he also began taking steroids, he said.

“His thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use,” Warwick said.

Another shocking revelation came from the prosecution who revealed the cost of alleged hit on Lambesis' wife was priced at $20,000 and that Lambesis was "very willing to pay that."
