Lindsay Lohan has pleaded not guilty in a misdemeanor case over allegations she lied to police about a June traffic accident.

The 26-year-old actress didn’t attend the arraignment court hearing, but attorney Shawn Holley entered the plea on her behalf, according to TMZ.com.

Lohan is expected to appear at a pretrial date scheduled for January 30. A February 27 trial date is set for the misdemeanor counts.

She is charged with lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing police from performing their duties.

Lohan told police that she wasn’t driving during the traffic accident, but police suspect she was behind the wheel.

The wreck sent her to the hospital briefly. The actress was on probation at the time for a 2011 necklace theft case and could be sentenced to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her conduct violated her probation.

Her probation was revoked last month but she had yet to enter a plea on the new charges.
