Amy Winehouse perverting course of justice case ‘likely to be dropped’

Star unlikely to face charges relating to her husband's case

The Crown Prosecution Service has said that Amy Winehouse is unlikely to be charged for any crime relating to her husband Blake Fielder-Civil’s charges of perverting the course of justice.

Winehouse had previously been questioned by police regarding money her husband was alleged to have been planning to use to pay off a witness to an alleged assault in which he was involved in.

But a source at the Crown Prosecution Service told the News Of The World that if she did give money to her husband, this would not be a criminal offence.

“It is most likely the case against her will be dropped,” the source claimed.

Blake Fielder-Civil is currently being held in Pentonville Prison in London, waiting to enter a plea for the charge of perverting the course of justice.
