For anyone who thought they had heard the last bit of legal double-talk from lawyers for Britney Spears — think again. The pop star is currently on trial for the misdemeanor charge of driving without a California license, and her legal eagle is pulling out all the stops to make sure she skates away from the charges.

According to attorney J. Michael Flanagan, while Brit may have been calling California home for several years (and by almost all legal accounts, she should have finally gotten a California license years ago), home is where the heart is, and the singer’s heart is apparently still in Kentwood, La.

"She was residing in California — I’m not trying to get tricky with the terminology — but ‘resident’ has a different definition," Flanagan attempted to explain to the jurors in the case.

The charges stem from an August 2007 incident in which Britney hit a parked car while pulling into an L.A. parking lot (CLICK HERE for step-by-step pics of the incident!)

While Brit was not required to be on hand for the trial, her father — and conservator — Jamie Spears testified under oath the 26-year-old had been planning to move home to Louisiana at the time and was only waiting to resolve the custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Spears could face a maximum six months in jail if convicted but is more likely to get a fine and probation.
