Despite reports that Lindsay Lohan will plead no contest to theft, the star may be poised to avoid going to jail entirely, according to new reports.
Here's the deal. By pleading no contest to misdemeanor theft, it's likely LiLo won't see an uptick in her 120-day sentence for violating probation.
If that takes pace, once she serves 120 days, she's off the hook. However ...
The L.A. County Sheriff's Department, which runs the jail where Lindsay must do the time, routinely allows inmates to serve their time at home.
Provided they wear an electronic monitoring device, of course.
Due to overcrowding, the L.A. County Probation Dept. often allows non-violent, misdemeanor offenders to complete sentences at home, too.
Judge Stephanie Sautner has made it clear that Lindsay will be treated just like any other defendant, and will not receive any special treatment.
Thing is, any other defendant would have a good shot at being let off with home confinement as well. Break out the bikinis and ankle monitors!
