Pete Doherty's Court Date for Drug Case Delayed Until January


Pete Doherty


Expected to enter not guilty plea during the trial, Pete Doherty has to wait until January 14 next year to stand in the court.

British rocker Pete Doherty headed to court on Thursday, December 2 to face a charge of cocaine possession following an investigation into the death of filmmaker Robin Whitehead. Director Whitehead, who was working on a documentary about the troubled The Libertines star, was found dead from a suspected drug overdose in an apartment in Hackney, London in January.

Doherty was one of four people questioned following the death of the 27 year old. The singer was charged with the drug count in September, alongside his two friends, Peter Wolfe and Alan Wass. Wolfe is also accused of supplying cocaine.

All three men appeared before a judge at Thames Magistrates' Court in London on Thursday for a committal hearing, to determine if there is enough evidence against them to proceed to a trial. They spoke only to confirm their names and addresses during the hearing.

But the males will have to wait another month to hear the outcome - the case was adjourned until January 14 2011, when Doherty, Wolfe and Wass are expected to enter not guilty pleas to all charges.
