Britney Spears rejects plea deal on road accidentOctober 9th, 2008 - 10:53 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, Oct 9 (DPA) Troubled pop star Britney Spears has rejected a plea offer on charges that she drove without a licence, the People magazine reported.Prosecutors had offered the 26-year-old a one-year probation and $150 fine if she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of driving without a licence.
But lawyer Michael Flanagan said Wednesday that Spears was being targeted because she’s a celebrity and doesn’t deserve even a minor criminal conviction on her record.
Her trial is set for Oct 15.
At the time of the 2007 fender-bender, Spears had a Louisiana licence but has since obtained a California driver’s licence.
