Judge refuses to delay Lindsay Lohan trial
(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - A judge is refusing to delay Lindsay Lohan's trial on charges of reckless driving and lying to police about a car crash last year.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Dabney said Friday there is no good reason to delay the case set for March 18.
Lohan's attorney Mark Heller sought the delay to prepare his defense and to allow his client more time to undergo psychotherapy counseling and perform community service.
Lohan has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charges that also include obstructing officers from performing their duties while investigating the June 2012 crash.
Lohan was on probation at the time of the crash and could face up to 245 days in jail if a judge determines she violated the terms of her sentence in a 2011 necklace theft case.
