Monday 09 June 2008
Amy Winehouse's husband has admitted attacking a pub landlord, it can be revealed today.
Blake Fielder-Civil, 26, of Camden, north London, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on James King, 36, and also to perverting the course of justice.
The pleas were made during a week of legal argument at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court where the pop singer made two appearances in support of her husband.
Today Judge David Radford lifted an order banning reporting of the guilty pleas of Fielder-Civil and his co-defendants and also an allegation that Mr King could have been subjected to intimidation or duress.
Michael Brown, 25, of Carshalton, Surrey, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and also perverting the course of justice.
Anthony Kelly, also 25, of Chalk Farm, north London, and James Kennedy, 19, of Hatfield, Hertfordshire, also pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice around November 2007.
King, of Risley, Derbyshire, alone faces trial on a charge of perverting the course of justice.
