Boy George in court over cocaine

Former pop singer Boy George is due to appear before a court in New York accused of possessing cocaine.

The British star was arrested on 7 October after police allegedly found the drug at his apartment in the city when they responded to a burglary call.

The 44-year-old, charged under his real name of George O'Dowd, has already entered a not guilty plea.

His lawyers say many people had been entertained at the apartment and Mr O'Dowd did not know who owned the drug.

Court papers suggest 13 plastic bags of cocaine, weighing more than three-and-a-half grams (one-eight of an ounce) in total, were found at the apartment in downtown Manhattan.

Officers who attended the address after receiving a call about a suspected break-in said they found the drugs in open view in the apartment.

The former Culture Club frontman, who now works as a DJ, could face up to five-and-a-half years in prison if convicted.
