Randy Blythe 'Getting Ready' To Stand Trial
According to Metal Hammer, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has posted a new message via Instragram stating that he is preparing himself to return to Prague to stand trial on charges of manslaughter on February 4th: "The last two or three days I have been getting ready mentally to leave my home and return to Prague to do this whole trial thing in early February, It's not something I particularly WANT to do; but inside, my gut and heart tells me it is the RIGHT thing to do. I cannot turn my back on the right thing." Blythe's statement comes after the White House responded to a Free Randy Blythe petition back in December. The petition raised 30,000 signatures, and while the White House was expected to respond to it within 30 days, their final statement was over fifteen weeks late: "We appreciate your inquiry about the case of D. Randall Blythe, who was released from detention in the Czech Republic on August 3, 2012, and returned to the United States shortly thereafter. "Mr. Blythe has publicly stated his intention to return to the Czech Republic to face trial for the alleged manslaughter of a Czech man at a concert in 2010. He recently told MTV, 'It's the correct thing for me to do... this poor young man's family deserves some answers.' "Pending Mr. Blythe's trial, we cannot discuss the details of his case. We are closely monitoring the progress of his trial. "We expect that the Czech government will make all efforts to ensure a fair, transparent, and timely trial for Mr. Blythe, and guarantee full protection of his legal rights under Czech law and his welfare."
