Randy Blythe’s Manslaughter Trial Begins; Community Responds

by | Feb 4, 2013

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe appeared in a Prague court today, beginning his manslaughter trial.

Blythe stated in court, “I kept my word. I said that I’d get to court today and I did. I do not shy away from responsibility. I’m not a person who runs away from problems, but I do not want to be punished for something I did not do.”

Blythe is accused of pushing a 19-year-old fan, Daniel Nosek, off stage during a Lamb of God performance in May 2010 who consequently died.

Parents of Nosek want compensation of 10 million Czech koruna (over $500,000 USD), reports Blesk.cz.

With Blythe’s trail now underway,¬†numerous bands took to their social networks to express their support for the frontman.

“As Randy Blythe from Lamb of God goes to trial today our thoughts are with him, his band, and his family,” Machine Head posted this morning. “Randy is innocent. This trial is a joke. The American justice system must take a long and hard look at itself, and realize, it has failed him, and us a society.”
