It was a major victory for Lindsay to have the charge reduced from a felony to misdemeanor. She now will not be facing jail time in a state prison if convicted, instead she will be sentenced to county - a softer option.

Judge Stephanie Sautner ruled that Lindsay did violate her probation though and has set the next pretrial hearing for May 11 and the trial date for June 3, 2011 - and Lindsay must appear in court for both.
