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.

How does JAIL OVER CROWDING even apply to Lindsay since she is not held with the rest of the inmates? It's all a bunch of BS.

I am so sick of celebrity justice. This will simply tell her it's alright to do drugs and thumb your nose at the judicial process.

Well, on a positive note, the residents of LA won't have to throw away their tax dollars.

I never believed for one nano second that Fox would put her in jail. Nah...she's got at least a dozen more good "I'm really trying" soliloquies to give him before he'll do anything.

She has no chance of ever being anything but a lying drug addict. Her mother supports that and apparently, so does the system she says is a joke. Sadly, it appears it is.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

For all the people who said "she'll get out of this" and the like, I was a little skeptical, thinking to myself, "how in the hell can she get out of not 1 but 2 failed drug tests?"

Well to all those people: I apologize. You were right!

Judge Fox, why bother with clogging the docket next month for probation violation hearing, sentencing her to jail, and her walking out a hour later, why effing bother. Take her off probation NOW and let the self entitled brat OD!
