Winehouse Husband's Trial To Start In June
AMY WINEHOUSE's husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL will stand trial on charges of perverting the course of justice in June (08). Fielder-Civil appeared at a court hearing at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London on Friday morning (18Jan08) to confirm his name and formally enter his not guilty plea. The 25-year-old, who is currently being held on remand at London's Pentonville Prison, stands accused to attempting to fix the outcome of his trial for grievous bodily harm. He and three associates are alleged to have assaulted barman James King in June last year (06), before trying to pay off King with $400,000 (GBP200,000) and a free holiday in return for withdrawing his statement. All other defendants have also pleaded their innocence. The Rehab star turned up 45 minutes late for the hearing and took her place beside her mother-in-law, Georgette Civil. During the hearing, Winehouse blew several kisses to her husband and twice whispered "I love you" to him. She later exclaimed, "I love you handsome, you gorgeous one", as Fielder-Civil was led out of court and back to jail. Winehouse herself had charges against her dropped in relation to the allegations of bribery earlier this month (Jan08), following her arrest in December (07). Fielder-Civil remains behind bars and is due back in court on 29 February (08) for another hearing. His June trial is expected to last between five to six weeks.
