Dina Lohan is maintaining her innocence. Accompanied by her attorney, Mark Heller, the 51-year-old appeared at Nassau County District Court in Long Island, N.Y., on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Lindsay Lohan's mom pleaded not guilty to DUI charges stemming from her Sept. 12 arrest.

Judge Joy Watson granted Dina release to supervised probation. Dina then surrendered her driver's license and left the court in a chauffeured silver Rolls-Royce. She is due back in court on Oct. 23.

Twelve days ago, Dina was pulled over for speeding on the Northern State Parkway on Long Island. She was subsequently arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. A sobriety test revealed she had a blood-alcohol level of .20 percent, more than twice the legal limit.

Her legal troubles will certainly make for a good story in her forthcoming memoir, slated for release in December. Last week, book publisher Birdstreet Books, Inc., confirmed to E! News that Dina is hard at work on her still-untitled debut.

A spokesperson for the company said Dina is eager to "address the rumors, misinformation and unsubstantiated stories often generated about her and her family by the tabloid press. Dina feels the public has often misunderstood her life and she has worked diligently over the past year to write this book, proving her dedication to truthfully and fairly represent herself and her children."

Something tells us Dina will have a lot to say.
