Lindsay Lohan

Will Dodge Jail Bullet

9/23/2010 6:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will not have to spend the next 30 days in jail ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

Lindsay Lohan jail.
There was a buzz in the case that Judge Elden Fox would have Lindsay jailed tomorrow -- without giving her bail -- and make her sit behind bars for 30 days until the next hearing. The danger for Lindsay -- she would have to serve the full 30 days and would not be released early because of jail overcrowding.

But insiders tell TMZ ... if Judge Fox remands Lindsay into custody he must set bail, because the underlying offenses are all misdemeanors.

So here's the way it will go down ...  Our sources say tomorrow's hearing will be extremely short.  There won't be any arguments over the case.  Judge Fox will schedule the formal probation violation hearing, and almost certainly remand Lindsay into custody and then set bail. But you can bet a bail bondsman will be right there in the courtroom to take care of business on the spot.  So Lindsay will walk out a free woman tomorrow.

When the probation violation hearing is held next month, it's likely Judge Fox will sentence Lindsay to 30 days in jail based on the failed drug test for cocaine.  As we first reported, the Probation Department will not recommend jail time for the second failed drug test because of an ambiguity in the paperwork.

But this 30-day sentence would be subject to the realities of jail overcrowding, which means Lindsay would go to jail for booking and probably be released an hour or two later.

The upshot -- looks like Lindsay will dodge another bullet.

And again she breaks the law and gets away with it because she knows there's no consequences.

HA HA Victory
Yes
@#TeamLindsay was right you can't refuse to set bail for a misdemeanor offense.
She has a right to be free if she can and WILL meet the bail conditions until the formal hearing.

This woman isn't dodging any bullets. She doesn't want to get clean and she thinks she's superior to everyone, so the arrogant attitude coupled with the addiction will prevent her giving up drugs. And, she's the typical, boring drug addict who doesn't think she's a drug addict. Yawwwwwnnn. So tired of her nonsense, and so over Blohan. I'm starting a pool - I say she's dead this time next year. Who's in?

So why all the testing and probation officer visits??? Our (California's) justice system is a joke.

You see Japan does not play!!!

WTF.... this girl needs to do the time. If I or anyone else did a tenth of what she has done - we'd be the reason for overcrowding.

Efff her.....

Bet if her name was Lakeisha Lohan the jail would be sure to find room for her. Funny how cute Lindho thinks she's being. Isn't it about time for her to check out already?!?

Just OD so we can bury you and talk about something else for a change.

I'm sick of all this Li-ho crappola and her "dodging bullets" every time she breaks her probation and thumbs her nose at the court system. She'll be back in her favorite hangout tomorrow night partying it up with her circle of enablers, celebrating once again. The court system's double-standard is alive and well in LaLaLand, there's celebrity justice and for the rest of us, there's jail.

The California legal system is a complete joke.. especially if you're famous.
This chick is going to OD in the next six months because she's getting nothing but slaps on the wrists. She needs to face some real time and stay away from all the leaches and her enabling family.

Godd*mn.

After the latest report of where and under what cir***stances
she twitted her "I Admit!" twit and what her c*** of a mother reportedly said, I'd like to see Lindsay seriously disfigured to wipe that elitist, snot-nosed, entitled smirl off her face.

Somebody chuck some acid on her face. I now, genuinly hate this b***h and her garbage dump family.
