After being arrested for a DUI last spring, Jensen Buchanan entered a plea of “not guilty” in court last week. The soap vet was arrested after she crashed into another car, sending the driver to the hospital. Buchanan was equipped with an ankle monitor bracelet when she appeared in court.

According to the Santa Maria Times, the actress, who last appeared on The Young and the Restless as Judge Moxley this year, was involved in a head-on collision last May with an alleged blood alcohol level of 0.34. She drove into a Ford C-Max on Highway 154 in Santa Maria. At the time, Buchanan was arrested and then released on $100,000 bail.

Buchanan sustained minor injuries, but the driver of the other vehicle had more severe trauma.

The plea is just another chapter in this case that has no end yet. The actress will appear in court again to set a preliminary hearing on November 30.

Meanwhile, Buchanan remains in a sober living facility and continues wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet.
