LATEST: Britney Spears is pleading innocent to her latest motoring misdemeanour charge - driving without a valid license. The troubled pop star's attorney J Michael Flanagan told he will plead not guilty on behalf of the 25-year-old when he enters the courtroom on Thursday (25Oct07). Spears, who will not be present in court, has been booked with one count of hit and run causing property damage, and one count of driving without a valid California license. Both charges are misdemeanours, each carrying a maximum of 6 months in jail. The charges stem from an incident on August 6 in Los Angeles, where Spears allegedly smashed into a parked car in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley. The singer reached a settlement agreement with the woman whose car she hit, and it is thought that hit-and-run charge is likely to be dropped.
