Seriously. That's what they call obstruction of justice in the U.K.!
The troubled husband of Amy Winehouse, Blake Fielder-Civil, has admitted assaulting a bartender and then attempting to bribe the dude to leave the country and miss the trial, thus resulting in charges being dropped.
His brilliant plot was foiled, though, and the blown perversion of justice attempt has landed him in jail without bond since back in November.
No stranger to legal problems and drug-fueled mayhem prior to this incident, Blake Fielder-Civil and three-co-defendants pleaded guilty last week.
Blake Fielder-Civil was arrested in November and has been in jail, awaiting trial and trying desperately to avoid dropping the soap, ever since.
The junkie faces 5-10 years in jail for the two charges combined, but given his guilty plea, and the time he has already served, he could be let off with significantly less than that. We'll have to wait and see.
Blake Fielder-Civil will receive his sentence at a later date.
