(ANI): Amy Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil has pleaded
guilty to beating up a pub landlord and attempting to cover up the
crime. Fielder-Civil, who is back in jail on remand, admitted to
GBH and perverting justice on June 9, and will be facing a long
stretch behind bars, reports The Sun.
A ban on reporting was lifted up by a judge after Fielder-Civil
pleaded guilty at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday to beating up a
barman, then trying to bribe him to leave the country. The street
attack on 36-year-old pub worker James King, carried out by
Fielder-Civil and his 39-year-old friend Michael Brown, in Hoxton,
East London, in June last year was caught on CCTV.
The two were said to have later offered him cash and asked him
to leave the country. Fielder-Civil is said to have sniggered in
the dock as he was admitting to the charges. The sentence against
him will be announced later.
