Lindsay Lohan Plea Bargain Not Dead ... Yet

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer and the prosecutor in her grand theft case met with the judge in chambers yesterday and left without a plea bargain.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers wants Lindsay to get six months in jail, but LiLo's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, is hoping for a lighter sentence.

Lohan, as we know, refuses any plea deal that involves her doing time. So we're at an impasse, but negotiations will continue this afternoon.

Ready For Court

Lindsay preens for the cameras before her arraignment.

According to TMZ, Lindsay was given a continuance so she can have more time to mull over the Judge Keith Schwartz's offer, which involves jail time.

Schwartz had made it clear that if Lindsay doesn't cop a plea by today, he'd send the case off to a trial judge, where she'd have to take her chances.

But the judge is now allowing Lindsay more time to consider this.

The fact that Lindsay is even thinking about accepting Judge Schwartz' offer is huge, as she's been adamant up until now that she won't go to jail.

The probation thing is what really may stifle her bid to stay free.

If she were a first-time offender with no record, not only would she likely not be facing charges here, but wouldn't be in the same bind regardless.

Because the judge overseeing her probation for a 2007 DUI can revoke her probation, if she doesn't cop a plea, he can remand her into custody.

In other words, she could be sitting in a cell one way or the next.

Lindsay personally told TMZ late Wednesday, "I am ready for court tomorrow, and I believe that the truth will prevail through all of this."

This all stems from a ganked necklace that will soon be for sale.

she def had plastic srugery, and she looks terrible, she does not at all look like the same person. lips, nose, cheek bones, those are a few things I noticed, and people don't change THAT much, you still always look like you even if you're 60, she does not look like her old self. yuck.

I think jailtime will help her. She obviously has problems cos she certainly could buy the necklace had she wanted it. And its hard to believe she's not guilty after all the trouble she has been in the past
Yet I predict she will not get much of a punishment and soon she will be in the news for something more serious

I believe it was an honest mistake. She didn't mean walk out wearing the necklace. Her past offenses were for alcohol and she has went to rehab by herself. Look at robert downey jr. And charlie sheen emilio estavez and britney spears! If they can get second and even 200 chances to change as well as a lot of us regular people who aren't constantly stalked by paparazzi, why can't Lindsay Lohan?

The store video. Shows her wearing the necklace for about 25 minutes. Then the clerk walks her to the door and holds it open for her. I don't think she stole it. I think the clerk loaned it to her and wasn't supposed to and the store is lying.

i beleive that because she is a movie star and rich that she will never do any time in jail. if that was a regular person they would be doing 2-5 for grand larceny.money talks.

Less than even one real chance, myself.

Really??? one more chance to change??? How many chances do you think you would get if you had the same run-ins with the law?

I dont believe she stole the necklace! And if charlie sheen can get away with all his past charges without jail time- lindsay should too. Give her one more chance to change.
