Britney Spears

Whether or not it's because she's a celebrity, Britney Spears still has to face the music at some point.

A judge has rejected her camp's motion to dismiss a year-old misdemeanor charge against her for driving with an invalid license, leaving the possibility of an October trial on the table.

Spears' attorney, Michael Flanagan, who has maintained that his client is getting a bum rap thanks to her high profile, told E! News Tuesday that he was hoping that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James A. Steele would toss the case.

"The law is clear," Flanagan said. "She should have just been issued a notice to correct pursuant to the vehicle code. The law says you shall issue a notice to correct. They did not do that. They just moved to prosecute. And she corrected it by obtaining a valid California license before she even got the notice."
