BREAKING: PROSECUTOR’S MOTION TO DENY RANDY BLYTHE BAIL OVERRULED — BUT JUDGE DOUBLES BAIL AMOUNT
The latest update on Randy Blythe brings good news and bad news. According to Czech news site iDNES.cz, a Prague Municipal Court has now dismissed the prosecutor’s complaint to deny Blythe bail. In other words, after nearly three weeks of being prison, Blythe may now be released from custody.
The bad news, however, is that the cost Blythe’s bail has been doubled, from $200,000 to $400,000. Previous statements made by Blythe’s attornies indicate that this may be as much two years’ salary for Blythe.
Furthermore, as previously reported, the prosecutor can file another complaint against the latest decision, which would further delay Blythe’s release even if he does pay the $400k. Given that the prosecutor has persued every opportunity to deny Blythe’s release on bail, it seems like a sure bet that he’ll pursue this course of action.
