Winona Ryder pleads innocent to theft, drug charges
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Winona Ryder pleaded innocent Friday to shoplifting and drug charges.
The actress, who co-stars in the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy "Mr. Deeds," was arraigned in Beverly Hills Superior Court. She's charged with second-degree burglary, grand theft, vandalism and possession of a controlled substance.
Ryder faces a maximum of about three years and eight months in state prison if convicted on all charges. She remains free on $20,000 bail.
A store security official testified during a preliminary hearing last week that she saw the 30-year-old actress cutting security sensor tags off the items, and a criminalist testified that two pills found in Ryder's possession were a generic form of Percoset, a prescription painkiller.
Superior Court Judge Elden Fox said then that there was sufficient cause for her to be tried.
