Lohan arrives at Los Angeles court for hearing
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lindsay Lohan arrived in court Wednesday for a hearing involving misdemeanor charges of lying to authorities and reckless driving in a crash last summer along Pacific Coast Highway.
The appearance marked the first time in nearly a year that she has been required to be in court.
Lohan was on probation for theft at the time of the wreck.
A judge previously warned her that she could be sentenced to 245 days in jail if she didn’t behave.
The hearing on Wednesday is intended to address any issues in advance of a trial scheduled for Feb. 27 on the three misdemeanor counts stemming from the crash.
Lohan has pleaded not guilty to lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing officers from performing their duties.
Prosecutors in Santa Monica charged her after her sports car crashed into a dump truck in June. Authorities suspect she was lying when she said she wasn’t behind the wheel.
The admonition came after the judge conducted several monthly updates with the actress and required her to perform morgue cleanup duty to complete her sentence in a 2007 drunken driving case.
In recent months, Lohan has filmed two movies and repeatedly gotten into trouble, including a pair of arrests in New York that have not resulted in charges.
Heller did not return a phone message.
