Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley states they are confident things will turn out good for the actress as she proclaims her innocence.
“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.
