On Tuesday, March 5, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was found not guilty of manslaughter by a panel of Czech judges. Blythe was on trial for the tragic death of a fan of the band who attended a Lamb of God concert in Prague in May, 2010, and died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage by the vocalist. Now that Blythe is a free man, Lamb of God is now officially part of the Rock On The Range roster again.
It must be noted that the state attorney, who had sought a conviction for manslaughter and asked for a prison sentence of five years, immediately appealed the decision. They have eight days from the day of the decision to file an official complaint to the High Court, which will examine the judgment. Blythe may also become involved in a civil trial as well.
Lamb of God's immediate touring plans are not known to the public yet, and the band's official website doesn't list any upcoming tour dates, including Rock On The Range. The band's activities were most likely put on hold during Blythe's trial.
After the court's decision, Blythe took to his Instagram account and wrote "I have been found not guilty and acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support."
