Lindsay Lohan pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor charges for allegedly lying to police.
Attorney Shawn Holley entered the plea during a hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom on Jan. 15. Lohan did not attend but is required to appear at a pre-trial hearing later this month.
Lohan is charged with lying to the police, reckless driving and obstructing police from performing their duties. Police suspect the actress was driving her sports car when she slammed into a dump truck on her way to the set of her Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick” in June. Lohan told the police she was not driving.
The embattled star was on probation for a 2011 jewelry heist case at the time. If the judge determines Lohan violated the terms of her probation, she could face up to 245 days in jail.
TMZ reported on Monday that the “Mean Girls” star fired Holley and hired attorney Mark Heller. Sources told the website Heller sent Holley a termination letter but Lohan had a change of heart.
On Jan. 15, insiders connected to Heller told TMZ that the New York attorney is representing Lohan and the appropriate parties were being notified.
In the meantime, Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey ordered Lohan to appear in court on Jan. 30 and emphasized that any confusion with the lawyers be cleared up prior to the appearance.
