• No Deal For Lindsay Lohan


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – No deal was reached today on three misdemeanor counts facing embattled actress Lindsay Lohan, stemming from a June car crash in which she was involved.

    Motions to dismiss two of the counts were rejected by Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney as reports about a possible settlement didn’t materialize.

    Lohan was set for trial on March 18.

    Her new attorney, Mark Jay Heller, had said he expected Lohan to attend the hearing at the Airport Branch Courthouse even though it was not required, but she was not there.

    The 26-year-old Lohan was charged Nov. 29 by the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office with one misdemeanor count each of willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer, providing false information to an officer and reckless driving. The misdemeanors each carry potential jail terms ranging from three months to a year.

    Lohan is accused of lying to the police by telling Santa Monica officers she was not driving a Porsche that rear-ended a truck on Pacific Coast Highway June 8 as she headed for work on the TV film “Liz & Dick.”

    Lohan already was on probation in connection with her no contest plea in May 2011 to a misdemeanor grand theft charge involving a necklace she took from a Venice jewelry store, and now stands accused by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office of violating the terms of her probation.

    In a court document filed last week, Heller contended that the actress was not advised of her Miranda rights following the crash and was questioned at Santa Monica Hospital after she invoked her right to have an attorney present.

    Heller asked that any statements from Lohan or photographs of her be suppressed and sought the dismissal of two of the charges — willfully resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer and giving false information to a a police officer — “on the basis that the Santa Monica Police Department officer was not acting or engaged in the lawful performance of his duties, and was acting unlawfully.”
