failure to maintain lane

My daughter went to court here in Newnan, Ga about a ticket she received for failure to maintain lane. She pleaded not guilty. She could have paid a fine and have been done with it. Because she pleaded not guilty, she had to appear again. Now, the same judge is saying he wants to review the video. My daughter has not seen it either. He is now making her come back to court again and sit down with the policeman who cited her, and a prosecuting attorney and the judge. He even told her that she could be put in jail up to one year. All she is being accused of as far as I know is crossing over the line. She was not speeding or drinking. This same officer has stopped her several times and accused her of the same thing, but never giving her a ticket. What are her rights? She has to appear again on Nov. 29. We are extremely worried that a minor offense is ballooning out of proportion. Does she need a lawyer to defend her?
