Winona Pleads Innocent

Actress Winona Ryder pleaded innocent Friday to shoplifting and drug charges.

The actress, who appears in the upcoming Adam Sandler comedy Mr. Deeds, was arraigned in Beverly Hills Superior Court. She is 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 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.
