Winona Ryder Drug Charge Dropped

"A Beverly Hills judge dismissed drug possession charges against actress Winona Ryder today and said her trial on charges of shoplifting about $4,000 worth of goods from Saks Fifth Avenue must start on Oct. 24."

Mark Geragos, Ryder's attorney, "told reporters she was anxious to clear her name and added, "I don't go to trial unless I think I can win."

He has said previously she is the victim of her celebrity and that the district attorneys' office treats the ordinary shoplifter far less harshly. He said he will not accept an offer involving a plea to a felony because it would negatively impact her career.
