Prosecutor Goes After Lindsay with a Vengeance

5/29/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the prosecutor in the Lindsay Lohan probation case is gunning for Lindsay in a big way ... and even plans to investigate the alcohol education program Lindsay has been attending.

Sources tell TMZ L.A. County Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers believes the Right On program was covering for Lindsay when it claimed she was in compliance.  We're told Meyers believes the program violated its own rules by giving Lindsay passing marks. 

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay did not attend all of the courses within the proper time limits -- once every 7 days.  But we also reported that the program followed state guidelines -- which requires attendance at least once every 21 days.  The school also excused Lindsay's tardiness ... something officials said is common among students in their 20s.

But here's what is really interesting.  Meyers says after she finishes prosecuting a death penalty trial next week, she will "be focusing all of my efforts on Ms. Lohan's upcoming hearing."  Mind you ... Lindsay's probation case is a misdemeanor.

Meyers is even sending D.A. investigators out into the field to sniff out potential probation violations of one Lindsay Lohan.

So we ask ...

That's what they would do if she was black. About time these white stars get the same treatment as black stars that do the same or less and get far worse. All this crap and she gets slap on the wrist, like that charlie shhen. know good and well if it was a black actor that beat his wife, there would not be a push for a new contract. everybody would just get all moral if it charlie was a black guy, like thats just wrong.

Hold on a second - Lindsay is a hot mess with substance abuse issues. She's not a criminal, just a damaged girl from a horrific family with all the usual problems most child stars face as they grow up.



This prosecutor gunning for her like this is not justice, it's a mockery. She should be focussing on putting REAL criminals behind bars.



Now Lindsay obviously needs some strict rules and some sort of 'Britney' like intervention and conservation to go on (Michael Lohan suck eggs cos you're not the right guy for the job) prison wont help this girl.



Send her into army training, that'll get her wild ways under control.



This stupid prosecutor needs to realise that her job is to bring murderers, rapists, theives, and other hardened criminals to justice. Not failed film stars!



REALITY CHECK PLEASE!

DA's Office is probably upset at what essentially is a spoilt brat giving the finger to the law. With an attorney who just blatantly lies for her. Tis their own fault though for letting a DUI offence turn into a soap opera, funded by tax payers dollars.

"Ha if the program said she was in compliance then she was in compliance"
Wrong !!!
The judge has to say if she is in compliance.

Oh boy, this should be interesting to see. I have had been wondering about the school she was attending for her alcohol rehab.

The DA Miss Meyers has just shot herself in the foot. To be talking to gossip sites about an unresolved case shows a poor lack of judgement and unprofessionalism. Would the DA be 'sending investigators into the field' on a misdemeanor case if the person were not Lindsay Lohan? of course she wouldn't! This will work in Lindsay Lohan's favor. To have a prejudiced DA who wastes tax payers money on a minor case like this is outrageous. Even TMZ are poking fun at the DA. Don't be surprised if Miss Meyers is replaced for the hearing on July 6th.

I feel she is just going after lindsay because she is some what wealthy and white. If she was black i doubt the prosecutor would even care. There are plenty of rich black folks who get away with crimes and murder...so people need to lay off with the racist rants. People with money no matter their color, always have a better chance at getting away with crimes, than regular hard workers.



This prosecutor needs to lay off...what a racist jealous woman!



Lindsay needs to be in jail for a long time. I believe this would due her good.

Lindsay's actions of total disrespect has insulted the justice system. You didn't think Judge Revel or Deputy DA Meyers would not take notice?



I predict jail time for Lindsay on July 6th

Lindsay's "I'm a movie star & should be treated that way" attitude evidently got her special treatment at the Alcohol Education program.



I also question the probation officer's desire to carry out Judge Revel's orders.



In addition - the ultimate disrespect is, showing up late to a mandated meeting. There are consequences to bad behavior

She should've been raised by more stricter parents, then she was, maye this is the parents fault that Lindsay Lohan turn out like she did, too much parenting the wrong way and she was able to develop bad habits, shame on you Mr. and Mrs. Lohan for doing this to your child. She has turned into a social embarrasment. Way to go!

I agree with Nessie. The prosecutor is just trying to make a name for herself so in a few years she will be DA or maybe a judge. Lindsay is no angel but the way people and the media treat her is it any surprise she flipped out. If everyone left her alone she might get a chance to live a some what normal life.
