The new 10-second video clip of Winona Ryder, marking the point at which the actress was first seen in Sak's Fifth Avenue, probably won't help or hurt her shoplifting case.

On Thursday, Ryder's lawyer, Mark Garagos, said of the new video, "I don't think it's anything of any great moment."

On the other hand, Garagos did tell reporters outside Superior Court that the 90-minute surveillance tape leaked to the media earlier this month will exonerate his client, showing "she wasn't doing what everybody said she was doing, which was removing things with scissors."

Ryder (Girl, Interrupted), who was charged Dec. 12 with theft, burglary, vandalism and possession of a pain reliever without a prescription, is currently free on $20,000 bail.

Geragos and prosecutor Julie Jurek will meet in court Tuesday to decide on a preliminary hearing date in which a judge will decide whether or not Ryder will stand trial.
