Lindsay Lohan to D.A.: Take Your Plea Bargain and Shove It!

by at . Comments

As expected and as reported earlier, Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers made a plea bargain offer to Lindsay Lohan's lawyer in chambers this morning.

That offer was six month in jail. Lindsay passed.

Judge Keith Schwartz said in court that he had a feeling her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley would pass on the D.A.'s offer. He was correct.

Lindsay Lohan told a confidant after leaving the courtroom that she will not cop a plea in her grand theft case, and that she's prepared to go to trial.

Accused of boosting a $2,500 necklace, the train wreck said bluntly, "I didn't steal" and made it clear she won't accept a plea that involves ANY jail.

Steadfast as she is, this may be an uphill battle. Here's why ...

Some experts are sure she is going to jail no matter what, as her preliminary hearing and probation violation case will be heard at the same time.

Lindsay is on probation for her 2007 DUI arrest, and has run afoul of that probation numerous times as it is. That's where she really has problems.

A jury has to convict her unanimously beyond reasonable doubt. A judge can simply revoke probation if he or she believes she violated the terms.

Basically, at the end of the preliminary hearing, if the judge feels it's likely she stole the necklace, Lindsay can be put in jail while awaiting trial.

Even if Lindsay fights the theft charge and is ultimately found not guilty, she'll still be sitting in jail for a probation violation if the judge says so.

That said, there's no way she's avoiding jail.

Look for Holley to keep pushing a deal and have her plead guilty or no contest, then hope the judge gives Lindsay less than six months somehow.

Honestly, it's hard to see a way in which she doesn't do time. At least if the legal system wants to look itself in the mirror with any self-respect.

What's your take on the Lohan case?


@ Bretsangel - why should she be cut some slack??? Go back into her past and see just how much SLACK SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN.


She DID steal the necklace, she DID abuse her probation and she DOES disrespect the court by dressing the way she does. The court has a dress code, why is she above it?? She also DOES NOT REALLY BELIEVE that she could go to jail. I KNOW she is thinking that at the end of the trial she will just receive a fine or slap on the wrist like most of the celebrities in the past and therefore has nothing to worry about. She also DOES NOT REALISE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE CASE. Why is it taking such a long time for her to GROW UP??? From the way she runs her life you would think she was still a kid.


LL isn't taking this serious at all. When they cuff her and take her away then maybe she will. She is disrespecting the court by wearing hooker attire. Why is the judge allowing her to dress in this manner? Here in Houston they have strict dress codes for court and if you violate that code you are sent home and given a failure to appear citation. I'm wondering why at her young age her breasts are down to her waist?!?


Glad to hear it. She needs to do some time for all she's done. Might mature her into a decent human being, and if not, well - at least she did her time.


I was reading that stores often loan out jewelry to the stars, but they usually have them sign a paper stating "it's a loan, not a gift". I find it hard to believe they would loan out such an expensive item without having sign something.


Her outfit was again disrespectful with the cleavage. She has no sense and apparently doesn't listen to her lawyer. Shawn is hoping against hope Blair Berk with take her back so she can be rid of this mess.


She needs to do the time, she did the 'CRIMES'. Don't know why she can't get her act together, ridiculous.
She can't complete a probation from 2007 without several violations.


I'm still hoping they will cut this former child star some slack. I can see where the D.A. would be out to get her just to make an example out of her but I think she could do more good out of jail than in. Put her on house arrest with Charlie Sheen and film it for reality television. Have Dr. Drew or Dr. Phil or Dr. Oz come in and check on them to make sure they don't kill each other and be done with it. Or maybe let them kill each other and show it on national television. Either way it will make the 6 pm news.


I've seen more respectfully dressed streetwalkers in downtown Atlanta. Why, oh why can this girl not bear to put those things in a sling and cover them up once in awhile?


It took this long for them to request a psyche evaluation?
