The 26-year-old pop singer is charged with a single count of driving without a valid license. She faces jail time and a fine if convicted, but isn't expected to appear during the case and won't hear the verdict firsthand.
Attorneys conferred with a judge for over an hour, but no deal was reached Wednesday. Her attorney claims Spears is being unfairly targeted because she is a celebrity.
The charge is the last remnant of a case that stemmed from an accident last August in which Spears hit a parked car and left the scene.
