Fielder-Civil Apologises To Pub Landlord
AMY WINEHOUSE's incarcerated husband BLAKE FIELDER-CIVIL has reportedly written a letter of apology to the pub landlord he assaulted, the CM reported.
Fielder-Civil is currently on remand in London's Pentonville Prison awaiting sentence for causing grievous bodily harm to pub owner James King in an incident in June 2006.
The 26-year-old was later charged with approaching King to try to fix the outcome of the trial by offering him a $400,000 (GBP200,000) bribe.
Now Fielder-Civil has sent a handwritten note expressing his remorse to victim King after pleading guilty to both counts at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London last month (Jun08).
The letter reads: "I hope you don't mind me writing, I think it's okay to now I've gone guilty. I just wanted to apologise again from the bottom of my heart."
But the letter has failed to convince King to forgive Fielder-Civil.
The 36-year-old tells British newspaper The News of the World, "I hope both Blake and Amy rot. The first time I met them was when his boot was smashing my face.
"Since then I've been to hell and back - all because he's stupid enough to think he could buy his freedom through his marriage to her and her millions."
King has also opened up about Fielder-Civil's co-defendant Anthony Kelly, 25, who allegedly threatened to kill him if he didn't withdraw his claims in court.
King adds: "He (Kelly) was very threatening. He told me I wouldn't be giving evidence against Blake. He said Blake would pay me to withdraw my statement and I would be flown to Spain before the trial.
"Kelly's men are not to be messed with. They said I could be knocked unconscious, blindfolded and locked in the boot of the car if necessary. But I still wanted to give evidence."
Winehouse's spouse, who faces up to five years behind bars for his crimes, and Kelly, who pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice, are due to be sentenced later this year (08).
