Gallagher Won't Be Part Of Fan's Sentencing

Officials in Canada have turned down NOEL GALLAGHER's request to appear at his attacker's sentencing hearing amid fears it will become a media circus.
The former Oasis rocker was left with three broken ribs after Danny Pickering lunged at him during one of the band's shows in Toronto, Canada in September 2008.
The 48 year old pleaded guilty to assault and Gallagher formally requested he be present at the sentencing hearing in Toronto to read the victim impact statement in person.
A judge previously ruled that Gallagher was entitled to be present and postponed the hearing date to accommodate the musician's schedule.
But now prosecutor Ruth Kleinhenz-Nelson has revealed officials have decided Gallagher should not attend because of the publicity surrounding the case, according to the Toronto Star.
The sentencing hearing has been rescheduled for 23 March (10), while Pickering's defence lawyer, John Collins, has called the delays "frustrating for me and my client."
