An LA judge refused to dismiss Lindsay Lohan’s reckless driving and obstruction case Friday and said the former actress would stand trial later this month.
The 26-year-old “Mean Girls” star was charged with reckless driving, lying to police and obstructing police, all of which are misdemeanors, after her Porsche car smashed into a truck on June 8, 2012, in Santa Monica, California. At the time of the accident, Lohan told police she was not driving the car, pleading not guilty to the charges.
At a brief hearing on Friday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Dabney reject the argument from Lohan’s defense lawyer Mark Heller claiming Lohan was unlawfully questioned by police following the 2012 car crash. The judge also refused Heller’s request to push back the trial in April.
Instead, the judge ruled Lohan will stand trial as scheduled on March 18. If convicted, Lindsay faces three months to a year in jail on each misdemeanor charge. She could also go to jail if she is found to have violated the terms of her probation, stemming from another case in 2007.
