Judge Refuses To Delay Misdemeanor Trial For Lindsay Lohan

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Lindsay Lohan’s attorney, Mark Heller, tried unsuccessfully Friday to get misdemeanor lying charges against his client dismissed.

Superior Court Judge James Dabney said Lohan’s trial will start as scheduled on March 18, citing there was no good reason to delay it.

Heller attempted to get charges against his client dismissed Friday, claiming officers failed to read Lohan her Miranda rights during questioning following a June 2012 car accident on Pacific Coast Highway.

The 26-year-old allegedly lied to officers on June 8, 2012, saying that she was not behind the wheel of her Porsche and that her assistant was driving when the vehicle slammed into the back of a dump truck on PCH while on her way to the set of her Lifetime movie, “Liz and Dick”.

The actress was already on probation at the time of the crash for taking a diamond necklace from a Venice jewelry store in 2011.

Lohan did not appear in court as expected Friday.

Despite a trial date looming, rumors have surfaced about a potential plea deal.

Santa Monica city prosecutor Terry White is reportedly willing to settle the crash case if Lohan agrees to go to a 90-day rehab program.

However, the Los Angeles District Attorney will likely object to a deal, saying a conviction in the Santa Monica case will mean a violation of Lohan’s parole in LA.

If convicted without a plea deal, the actress faces potential jail time ranging from three months to 245 days.
