Lindsay Lohan Refuses Plea Deal Involving Jail

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer is doing all she can to negotiate the best possible plea deal for a client who, in legal parlance, is up s--- creek without a paddle.

The troubled star has other ideas about how to proceed, however.

Lindsay doesn't care what Shawn Chapman Holley is trying to work out with the D.A., and is still steadfastly refusing to plea bargain if it involves jail time.

Back Before the Judge

DENIAL: The writing is on the wall, but LiLo won't read it.

Facing felony grand theft charges for allegedly pilfering a $2,500 from a jewelry store, and already on probation for her 2007 DUI case, she's up against it.

Nevertheless, Lohan insists on going to trial in the hopes she will win and clear her name. Apparently the train wreck is unaware of how probation works.

Holley, D.A. Danette Myers and Judge Keith Schwartz will meet week to get a feel for how much time Lindsay Lohan will be sentenced to with a guilty plea. 

Given that her probation can be revoked at the judge's sole discretion, LiLo could be sitting behind bars one way or the other. Thus Holley's maneuvering.

Lohan doesn't care what kind of deal Holley gets, even if it means being locked up for merely a few weeks, though. She wants no part of it, end of story.

Lindsay wants to go to trial, feeling the surveillance tape will clear her name. It's a terrible gamble by all accounts, but one she seems hell bent on taking.

Ms. Lohan, Darling take any lucrative plea bargain you can get because a jury of your peers will throw you under the bus, then put it in reverse to be done with you. Fact is you have been given too many opportunities to straighten up your life baby girl. People get tired of hearing you play that violin with broken strings. Woman up and save the little dignity that you have left. Your word should always be your bond. Afterall, when it comes down to it, our good name and the promises we keep are all the collateral we possess in thos world.

At the first hearing on this the judge looked her right in the eye and told her that a plea bargin not including jail time will not be accepted peroid. He also told her if there is no plea and there must be a trial he will remand her to jail on the probation violation on the day that is decided. So why even bother trying to negoiate a no jail deal with the DA when she has been told it will not be accepted? It is totally her right to go to trial if she claims she didn't do it,hell, it's everyones right, but she has already been what is going to happen from the person who has the authority to make that decision-the judge. I guess she has yet to accept that fact though. Hopefully the judge follows through.

Lindsey if you are really truly sober and working a program it's called making amends and seeking forgiveness. Fact is while she was still using this necklace mysteriously disappeared from the store and later reappeared around your neck on video around the world. The judge and the lawyers want what is best for you. Going to trial. For real. Disaster. Jurors who already think you got 20 chances to many and 21 more chances than I ever got. Good luck with that.
