Lindsay Lohan is prepared to eat a piece of humble pie in court and beg Judge Stephanie Sautner for mercy. Whether she'll be successful or not is another story.
Wednesday, at a hearing that could end with a jail sentence, she will concede she violated her probation by getting kicked out of her community service program.
The hearing is to establish if Lindsay violated probation for her necklace heist and what consequences she will face if so. But the first part of that may be moot.
After a series of repeated f*%k-ups, LiLo's shift in strategy is designed to show the judge she is now finally serious about complying with her probation terms.
She'll come to court having logged 24 hours of time at the morgue, significantly more than the 16 hours Sautner required her to put in by Wednesday's hearing.
By effectively admitting guilt, her plan has risks - but could also lead to a lighter sentence than if she were to try and fail to establish her innocence all along.
Judge Sautner made it clear that if Lindsay violated probation she would go to jail. She does not seem like she's messing around, but we'll see for sure soon.
If nothing else, her new teeth will look great in a new mug shot.
What do you think? Should Lohan do hard time?
