Pete Doherty denies drug charge

Libertines man now set to go to court in March

Pete Doherty has pleaded not guilty to a charge of possessing cocaine.

The charge came after investigations into the death of filmmaker Robin Whitehead in January 2010.

Doherty appeared at Thames Magistrates’ Court in London today (February 2), with Judge Jacqueline Comyns referring the case to the Crown Court, reports BBC News.

The singer, along with his associates Alan Wass and Peter ‘Wolfman’ Wolf, both of whom were also charged over the incident, has been ordered to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court on March 29. All three deny the charges.

Doherty recently revealed that The Libertines have been considering new gig offers.
