LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has arrived in court for a hearing that will determine whether the actress goes to jail or averts a trial on charges that she lied to police.

The hearing had been set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Monday and she arrived after 9 a.m. It was unclear if the hearing had been delayed.

Lohan entered the courtroom looking slightly frazzled in a cream-colored pant suit.

It appears the actress is headed to trial over a June car crash that briefly sent her to the hospital and returned her to court for proceedings she could have avoided if she stayed out of trouble.

Lohan has pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor charges filed after the accident — reckless driving, lying to police and obstructing officers from performing their duties.

Even if she isn't convicted, the "Liz & Dick" star could face up to 245 days in jail if a judge determines she violated her probation in a 2011 theft case.
