Nicole Richie DUI trial delayed again

 Simple Life star Nicole Richie has been granted another request to postpone her DUI case trial.

Nicole Richie DUI trial delayed again L. A. Superior Court Commissioner Steven Lubell granted another request to postpone the DUI trail against Nicole Richie until August 16th.

 Shawn Holley, the attorney for the Simple Life star, submitted a motion on Tuesday, asking the court to postpone the trial, because a main witness will be out of the country and will not be available to testify. The witness, Dr. Terence Sean McGee, is an expert who will challenge the conclusions reached by the prosecution's drug recognition expert following Nicole Richie's arrest.

 Although Lubell vowed last month not to grant any more extensions, he was persuaded, but requested that Nicole Richie appears in person at the next hearing - not normally required of misdemeanor offenders.

 Nicole Richie started her own trouble with the law in December, when she was arrested for driving the wrong way on the highway. According to the police, Richie admitted of smoking marijuana and taking Vicodin before getting behind the wheel. She pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence at her arraignment hearing in February. Nicole Richie has a prior DUI conviction, and if found guilty, she could serve up to one year behind bars.

 A plea deal is also on the table, but details have not been made public.
