OFFICIAL: Randy Blythe, frontman of US metal band Lamb Of God, has been acquitted by a Czech court of manslaughter and causing a death at concert in Prague. The refreshing announcement comes mere weeks after Randy Blythe was holed up in a dirty European jail before being released after his trial was delayed. You can read a full (roughly translated) article, direct from the Czech media, at this location.
It was a case that captured the minds of the heavy metal public – and beyond. Randy Blythe is now free to walk the streets of Prague, Berlin, and of course – anywhere in Virginia. The singer, who faced five years in prison if convicted, had traveled to Prague to fight the charges and announced the acquittal on Instagram.
“I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. I only wish for them peace. Thank you for your support.”
The judge presiding over the case commented:
“Criminal liability we could find for the defendant. We found, however, moral responsibility.”
The prosecution has appealed, so perhaps there could be another twist in the tale yet.
