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 ...

Everyone in the case can thank TMZ for IMO, it's OVERKILL BY BOTH THE PROSECUTOR & TMZ! This is all hearsay as it has NOT been proven that she dissed her classes or that they covered for her, just allegations. Let the girl 'try' to accomplish what the judge has ordered her to do & it appears that she's abiding by the rules thus far................. All this speculation, rumors & allegations are just that.... speculation, rumors AND allegations with oftentimes misleading headlines, compliments of TMZ.....

I'm getting sick of this illiterate nicole. Sounds like she's another uneducated celebrity too. Any bets on that?

Then it's a good thing that Lindsay's lawyer is on record stating that neither the judge nor the D.A. are influenced by TMZ's reporting.

Michael Lohan has screamed that the courts were not doing drug and alcohol testing and that his daughter was dying from drug abuse. I think the prosecutor wants to prove to the world that they are finally cracking down on a celebrity.

Just what we need -- another prosecutor who is going to go berserk because she finally has a chance to prosecute a celebrity, and be in the limelight herself.

At least this prosecutor can look back and know that she was the only one who actually took the steps to help. Its not just about putting people in jail.

When I attended alcohol education classes, they had you sign in when you arrived, and locked the door when the class started, not allowing any latecomers in. So this program lets stragglers in if they are in their early 20's, and expects them to be late? Nice if you can get it, but not fair at all.

Our you kidding me, she had a court date she chose to ignore...Her treatment center of choice gives(gives)her a pass...Why our we outraged that a social worker(aka prosecutor)want's to take it to the limit. This is adherence to the law, and all forementioned celebs' should have been governed by it. I am tired of reading stories about people paying there way out of punishment...This is all stupid bs...

This prosecutor should investigate TMZ for meddling in a pending criminal proceeding.

I'd rather see the tax payer's money being wasted on nailing her, rather than see it be used on police escorts after a drunken rendezvous she has every night.

Hmmmm    

BS. This DA is a joke. At the hearing she was totally irrelevant and the judge hardly even acknowledged her presence. If she wants Lindsay she should have brought something to the table at the hearing. The courts are backed up with cases, big time. and it's foolish to think that a DA is going to focus all her time on one person. She'd get fired if she did. This is nothing but a violation of probation on a DUI case and if the DA needs to spend all her time on a mousemeat case like this she shouldn't be in the DA's office. "Sources"? LOL. How about a video of the DA actually saying this? If anyone is after Lindsay with a vengeance it's TMZ. Another meaningless post to keep the Lindsay Lohan cash cow going.

So, Samantha, #55, only a DUI? God in heaven, I hope nobody in your life is ever, ever injured or killed by a drunk driver. So, let's just slap her with a fine and a little SCRAM bracelet and call it quits? It's people like you and Lindsay that scare me.

In regards to the following comment; 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.



In 2006, by her own admission on twitter, Courtney Love admits to bribing an official LA social worker, to keep her father from visiting with his granddaughter. Sandy Troy, the attorney who set up the bribe, was on retainer to both Courtney Love and Hank Harrison, the petitioner in the case
