Amy Winehouse pleads not guilty to assault

The Superficial / March 17, 2009

Suitably dressed for court, Amy Winehouse appeared before the magistrate today and plead not guilty to charges that she assaulted a fan back in September. The AP reports:

Winehouse, who has been in and out of rehab, looked healthier than in recent appearances and appeared to be in good spirits. She covered her bosom in faux modesty as she entered the courtroom.
Once inside the City of Westminster Magistrates’ Court, she confirmed her name and date of birth and pleaded not guilty to a charge of common assault.
Winehouse gave her name as Amy Jade Civil. Her husband of two years, Blake Fielder-Civil, has filed for divorce.
Her lawyer, Mark Haslam, apologized for what he called the singer’s slightly late arrival in court, saying she had left her north London home more than two hours earlier but had been delayed.

These are pics of Amy outside the courthouse, and for most women, I’d normally suggest rocking a little cleave to convince the judge of your innocence. (I’ve seen Judge Judy once. That’s like law school – times a million.) However, with Amy Winehouse I probably would’ve suggested something a little less risque. Like a beekeeper’s outfit – complete with mask.

I should open my own practice.
