Noel Gallagher Wants to Attend Attacker's Sentencing Hearing

February 8, 2010 (8:45 am) GMT
Noel Gallagher is set to meet a man, who attacked him during Oasis gig in 2008, in court at his sentencing hearing.

Noel Gallagher is to face his concert attacker in court after personally requesting the chance to read the case's victim impact statement in person. The rocker was left with three broken ribs after Danny Pickering lunged at him during an show in Toronto, Canada in September 2008.

The 48-year-old has already pleaded guilty to assault and now Gallagher wants to be present at his sentencing hearing. Defence lawyer John Collins had asked Ontario Justice Richard Schneider to turn down Gallagher's request, stating the rocker was attempting to "control the proceedings".

But the judge has ruled that Gallagher is entitled to be present. On Friday, February 5, the court adjourned to pick a date when Gallagher can appear. According to Examiner, Gallagher would be allowed to attend the court in person sometime in April.
