Trial Date Set for Lindsay Lohan

By January 16, 2013

Follow me on:

A February 27 trial date has been set for Lindsay Lohan on four misdemeanor charges connected to an auto crash in June, while questions arose concerning who her attorney will be when she goes to trial. Lohan's long-time attorney Shawn Holley entered not guilty pleads for the 26-year-old actress this week in Los Angeles.

But Holley reportedly received a letter from a New York attorney saying that she was fired.

In June, Lohan's vehicle crashed into a dump truck. At the scene, Lohan told police that she was not driving. Investigators now believe she was behind the wheel and therefore lied to investigators. She is charged with lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing police from performing their duties.

Lying to Police

Although all of the charges are misdemeanors, they could be cause for the revocation of her probation for stealing a necklace in 2011. The "Dick & Liz" actress could face up to 245 days in jail if her probation is revoked.

Lohan wasn't in court Tuesday, but will have to appear at a hearing January 30. During this week's hearing, Los Angeles County Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey asked attorney Shawn Holley if she still represented Lohan.

"Yes, at this point, yes," said Holley.
