LAMB OF GOD Drummer Chris Adler On Randy Blythe Acquittal - "The Trial May Be Over, But The Loss Is Forever And We Also Continue To Mourn"
March 6, 2013, 4 years ago
Yesterday, Tuesday March 5th, a Czech court acquitted the frontman of US heavy metal band LAMB OF GOD, Randy Blythe, of charges he caused the death of a fan at a concert in Prague three years ago.
Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler has posted the following message: "We greatly appreciate and have been fortunate to have the support of our friends, families and fans from all over the world during a nightmare situation for us in Prague. We are now able to get back to work, but are still saddened by the loss of Daniel Nosek. The trial may be over, but the loss is forever and we also continue to mourn."
The prosecution had accused Blythe, 42, of causing the death of the 19-year old fan by pushing him off the stage at a 2010 concert.
If found guilty of manslaughter, Blythe faced up to ten years in prison. Daniel Nosek's family was also demanding the equivalent of over $500,000 in damages.
The State Attorney immediately announced his intention to appeal the verdict; he has eight days to put this in writing.
