Probation Dept. Cuts Lindsay Lohan a Break

9/22/2010 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan may actually skate on a failed drug test ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

0920_lindsay_lohan_EX_TMZ_03
We've learned the second test Lindsay failed showed a positive reading for Adderall, but the L.A. County Probation Department is not recommending jail time for that violation -- because there is an ambiguity in the paperwork that went from the court to the Probation Office.

The Probation Department is recommending 30 days jail time for the first failed drug test which showed a positive reading for cocaine.

Now here's where it gets interesting ... Judge Elden Fox has a couple of options on Friday.  He could sentence Lindsay on the spot to 30 days in jail for the cocaine violation ... but because of overcrowding Lindsay would be released the same day.

Judge Fox's other option is to deny her bail, throw her in jail and set a hearing that would take place 30 days later.  Under this scenario, Lindsay would not be released early -- she'd sit in jail for 30 days until her hearing.  We're told judges do this "all the time" when they want to make sure a defendant does the time.

Friday should be interesting.

I thought the "doctors" who released her early and said she had "no problems" weaned her off of all the psychotropics and other things...so why on earth is she back on the adderall (sp..sorry not a doctor but could do better than these bamboozled foolios). See, Lindsay needs a wake up call, and everybody is too busy either pimping her (I am talking to you Dina and the producers of her next movie...a porn star who had sex with dogs on film...good career move Linds!!)...and all the other hangeroners...she needs a real kick in the ass by the justice system, some cholitas in jail, and some ex addicts (like moi) who have paid a hefty price for freedom from drugs and jail. Please, stop coddling her public and "friends" and Hollywood types...cause her blood will be on your hands if she O.D.'s I however won't cry a tear cause she got more chances than anybody I can think of to get it together, and she chose to throw it all away. No pity for a fool.

Why even bother to arrest these people ? Why waste tax payers money and the judge's time ??? They do what they want, no ramifications for their actions (when the average Joe would be locked away !) Celebs are absolutely ABOVE THE LAW, especially in LA ! A joke, simply a joke.......

Oh for God's sake. Really??!!? What a joke our "system" is.
This is just absurd. No wonder she is never worried about
consequences. There never are any.

You have to be kidding me. She needs the 30 days in jail plus a long stint in mandatory rehab. Wake up....she has an illness, she is beyond helping herself, she needs to take responsibility for her actions. If you or I did what she did they wouldn't be telling us we need not go to jail because "of overcrowding". Two sets of rules here & the ones who have the best lawyers win!!

I thought she was removed from Adderall and that UCLA said she WASNT ADHD. Reguardless if they really have a hard on for her the components of methamphetamine and amphetamine in Adderall can be differentiated if they send it to a lab. As I wondered earlier how they do their urine analysis. Reguardless, there isnt any cocaine in facials so...good luck on that.

As far as Delmar saying she isnt a addict you are high. For the 3 months before she went to her last court hearing she was reporting 1 or 2 a month and cocaine takes 72 hours to get out of the system. Her body weight maybe even less leaving PLENTY of time to get high and beat a screening. She was leaving bars looking checked the feck out. Which also stunned me cause she isn't supposed to enter "any business who's main purpose is the sale of alcohol." Then after 3 weeks of being under a microscope she pops a cocaine dirty!?!?! The definition of addict or alcoholic is the consistant use of substances in the face of dyer consequences, and after 3 years? and you are still doing dope? You clearly have an issue with the term 'addict'. If she wasnt she would of been off probation 2 years ago.

?? She was diagnosed as NOT having ADD and was taken off the meds and did fine - all in the last few months. Why would she still be taking Adderall? Not for ADD, which she supposedly doesn't really have after all? Could it be because it's like speed? Possibly? Not for ADD at all. Just thinking?

Screw it, give her a full pad of signed Dr's prescriptions, a case of Grey Goose, a bag of coke that would make Tony Montana shed a tear, and the keys to a Lamborghini rented in someone else's name.

When she kills someone, just tell the family, "that's the way it goes, SHE has rights."

Does that about sum it up, California???

Folks, she's gonna walk on these charges. I just know it. That's how it works with celebs. The courts are so star struck, they don't think straight. How about doing this, just let her run wild. Nobody in the "injustice" system has the guts to really throw the book at her. What a life she has, huh? If this had been Joe or Joanne average person, they'd be in the slammer right now.

I have never heard in my life of prisons being so overcrowded that people do not have to serve ANY of their time, if that was the case their would be thousands o convicts walking the streets.
