We've passed the point of debating whether Lindsay Lohan will do time. Barring some miracle, she will. It's just a matter of where and how long.
Judge Keith Schwartz has offered her 60-90 days in jail (of which she'd serve 20-30) if the troubled star enters a guilty plea to felony grand theft.
Yet Lohan still balks. Too bad LiLo's probation report is so bad, it's going to land her in the can even if she is innocent of stealing that necklace.
Another reason she should really get her head out of her a$$ and take the deal? The sentencing process. State prison and county jail are different things.
State prison is not a foregone conclusion, as the D.A. could ask the judge to send Lindsay to a more "comfortable" location instead. But it's on the table.
Regardless, Lindsay will go to jail sometime if the judge orders her to stand trial at the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, currently set for April 21.
If she insists on refusing a plea deal and insists on going to trial, she will serve some time for violating probation, whether she's found guilty or not.
Everyone but Lohan herself seems to realize this. Says a source:“Judge Schwartz has told Lindsay that he would sentence her to 60-90 days, if she accepted a plea deal, which she would serve in county jail.”
Lindsay must notify Judge Schwartz by March 23 if she is planning on taking the deal, if she does she will then appear in front of him March 25.
If she does not accept the plea deal she will have her case transferred and appear on April 21 for a preliminary hearing before a new judge.
Girl's toast either way. Might as well go down easy and not hard.
