Lohan driving case back in court

Lohan driving case back in court

Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer will return to court today for a hearing in the actress’s latest criminal case, as discussions continue about a possible plea deal before trial.

The 26-year-old is not required to attend the hearing in Los Angeles.

The hearing is intended to take care of any issues before a March 18 trial on charges that Lohan lied to police about a June car crash and was driving recklessly.

Lawyer Mark Heller also plans to meet prosecutors today to try to negotiate a plea deal. He wants to delay the case so Lohan can pursue psychotherapy and perform community service.

Lohan was on probation at the time of the accident and she faces jail if a judge determines she violated her sentence in a 2011 theft case.
