Source: Lindsay Lohan Seeks Plea Deal, Judge Seeks Jail Time For Malcontent

by at . Comments

The good news for Lindsay Lohan? The judge in her grand theft case is serving as the go-between in plea negotiations between Team LiLo and prosecutors.

The bad news? He thinks Lindsay should do time.

Lindsay will appear today before Judge Keith L. Schwartz and prosecutor Danette Meyers, who will offer her lawyer, Shawn Holley, a formal plea bargain.

Meyers already told Holley that doing time is not negotiable, while Lindsay is scared of jail and refuses to accept this. So where do they go from here?

Back to the Slammer

THIN ICE: Lindsay is skating on it, to say the least.

Judge Schwartz will propose that Lindsay accept some jail time for a probation violation (she's still on probation for her 2007 DUI arrest, after all).

In return, he'll offer the actress three years felony probation for the grand theft case, which is more than generous given that it's a felony case.

Of course, the caveat is that if she screws up during that probationary period, she'll be headed to STATE prison, not the county lockup. Yikes.

If Lindsay Lohan doesn't accept a plea, the judge will set a date for a preliminary hearing and Lindsay may be forced to roll the dice at trial.

It's not clear whether Holley feels she can win that battle, and her resistance to a less-than-favorable plea might be a good gauge of that.

As of early this morning, Lindsay Lohan insists she's innocent, that the D.A. is out to get her and is ready to go to trial to clear her name.

Holley has not seen surveillance video of Linds allegedly bogarting a necklace last month, but Meyers will present her with her very own CD.

Stay tuned for further developments.

If she does not go to jail for the theft or probation violation I honestly think her lawyer should start charging a billion dollars an hour 'cause I have no idea how she got Lindsay out of it. Lindsay has more than earned a stint in prison. This time having to serveher whole sentence.

She has earned some prison time. Some prison time will straiten Lindsay out since she is "scared of jail". Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

I think that she need do pay for what she has done. If it was some off the streets they would go strat to jail.

Why do some believe they are above the law. Remind me, how many times has she been in jail/court/trouble? And her excuse is? If Joe/Joan citizen did those things, they would still be locked up. OMG, where does it end.
