Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer is optimistic

“Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered from that,” Holley said in a statement. “Although many people advised her to follow the safe route by taking ‘the deal,’ the truth is, Ms. Lohan is innocent; she has a strong defense. We are confident a jury will listen to the evidence fairly and acquit her.”

The troubled star recently rejected the judge’s plea deal, opting to go to trial.

If she’s proven guilty, the 24-year-old actress faces more jail time if she had taken the plea.

Lohan is currently on probation for a DUI conviction in 2007.

Her next appearance in court for a preliminary hearing is on April 22.
