More lawsuit drama at Dolce & Gabbana! The Italian company's U.S. publicist, Ali Wise, was arrested on charges of hacking into the voice mail of interior designer and socialite Nina Freudenberger last week, but has yet to be fired!

Wise's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller (who also represented Fabian Basabe) states that her client has "'done nothing illegal and has done nothing wrong'" and is still employed by Dolce & Gabbana, as reported by WWD.

The 32-year-old publicist usually makes the papers for her social life and on-again, off-again relationship with hotelier Jason Pomeranc.

Now Wise is facing felony charges of computer trespass and eavesdropping!

According to the complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court, Wise allegedly told a detective that she bought a Spoofcard (computer spyware) to access Freudenbereger's voice mails.

The compaint also states that Wise broke "into the account 54 times between Jan. 2, 2008 and March 15, 2008," cites WWD.

Heller defended Wise by arguing that her "statement to the detective was taken out of context and would not be admissible in court, contending SpoofCard does not provide a service that allows users to access another person's voice mail," WWD reports.

Dolce & Gabbana has declined to comment on Wise's job status, but has frozen her position for the time being. Considering that the company has had its own fair share of legal issues (remember the company's tax evasion problems?), perhaps it is as Heller says, "a prudent approach."

With the court date set for October 19, Wise was released by the court on her own recognizance. Chances are we won't be seeing her at a fashion party any time soon!
