Lindsay Lohan appears in court, trial delayed
The actress was required to attend the pretrial hearing involving three misdemeanor counts filed after a car crash last summer. Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing officers from performing their duties.
Sautner previously sent her to jail, placed her under house arrest and forced her to perform morgue cleanup duty in another case.
Lohan was on probation at the time of the wreck and could be sentenced to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her actions in the crash were a violation of her sentence in a theft case.
Lohan’s new trial date is March 18.
The judge quipped that it would only solve her legal trouble “on this coast” _ a reference to her two arrests in New York since being released from supervised probation in Los Angeles in March. No charges have been filed in those cases.
Sautner gave him more time by delaying the trial but said, “This is not the most complex case we’ve ever seen.”
Lohan appeared in court in a black dress. She spoke only briefly to confirm that she was switching attorneys and no longer wanted her longtime lawyer, Shawn Holley, to represent her.
