“She’s concerned about how the arrest will affect her image because she feels this situation is unjustified,” Pressly’s lawyer, Rich Hutton, told PEOPLE on Friday, following a hearing in the case. “It doesn’t represent who she is.”
The actress, 33, who has pleaded not guilty, is also dealing with her divorce from Simran Singh, but Hutton says she’s maintaining a positive attitude.
“She’s a wonderful woman,” he says. “She’s doing great. She takes this [DUI case] very seriously. She’s upset, but overall – aside from this – she’s doing very well.”
Pressly’s next DUI hearing is scheduled for May 3. She is not required to appear in court.
