Randy Blythe Not Guilty in Manslaughter Case

According to Blesk.cz and Novinky.cz, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has been found not guilty of manslaughter by a three-judge panel in the Czech Republic.

Blythe was facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a May 2010 incident in which a fan, Daniel Nosek, who attended a Lamb of God performance in Prague, died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage.
“I have been found not guilty and acquitted of all charges against me," Randy wrote on his Instagram account. "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."
Tuesday's ruling by Prague's Municipal Court was confirmed by the court spokeswoman, Marketa Puci. The state prosecutors have announced their intention to appeal the verdict; they have eight days to put this in writing. Blythe is not required to pay any compensation to the victim's family.

This may not be the end of the proceedings, but definitely a victory for Randy...
