Amy Winehouse Cleared On Witness Tampering Charges

British police are no longer investigating Amy Winehouse on suspicion of attempting to interfere with a court case involving her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.

The 24-year-old, Grammy winning singer is no longer required to return to a police station for further questioning, her spokesman, Chris Goodman, said in a statement to the media.

"Amy is pleased to be discounted from the investigation and thanks the police for their professionalism in their dealings with her," the statement said.

Winehouse was arrested in December on suspicion of trying to pervert the course of justice.

Amy's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, appeared in a London court Friday on charges of attacking a pub landlord and then later conspiring with him to withdraw as a witness at the trial.

Fielder-Civil plead not guilty. He is due to appear again in April.

Winehouse didn't attend court because she was traveling to Paris to perform at a Louis Vuitton party for Fashion Week, her spokesman said.

The singer won five Grammy Awards, including best record, best song and best new artist in early February.

After a decade and a half of skyrocketing drug arrests and imprisonment rates at a cost of billions of dollars, California now suffers the highest rates of drug abuse deaths in our history, and there has been no discernible impact on California crime rates is observed. This finding confirms a recent United States Department of Justice drug policy study that concluded: Drug Rehab center is one of the best way.

Higher rates of arrests, stricter laws, and more aggressive sentencing policies do not deter many drug users exposed to these penalties. This leads to a revolving door scenario in which drug-involved offenders appear repeatedly before the courts. One study found 60 percent of opiate-dependent Federal parolees were reincarcerated within 6 months of release -- virtually all for narcotics-related crime -- at an incarceration cost of more than $27,000 per person, per year
