Model Morgan Quinn's lawyer is hoping to score a dismissal in his client's false robbery report case.
The blonde beauty, who has appeared on U.S. fashion show Project Runway, was arrested in October (13) and charged with filing a false report following claims that a homeless man had threatened her with a sharp object in August (13) and stolen her purse, which contained $300 (£200) in cash and a ring worth $2,000 (£1,330).
Investigators checked Cctv footage from a Manhattan building close to the scene of the alleged crime, but failed to find any evidence to support Quinn's story.
The model, who stands by her story, appeared before a Manhattan judge on Wednesday (11Dec13) to face the count, but her case remains pending and her lawyer, Brian Kennedy, reveals he will move for a dismissal.
He tells the New York Post, "I'm hoping for the best outcome. Hopefully the Da's office drops the case."
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
