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.

Celebrity justice at it's finest.....I'm so sick of seeing this little brat get away with everything. There is obviously no reason to do drug testing on her since it doesn't matter if she has drugs in her system or not....please spare me any more news about this pathetic person!

Fascinating....the celebrity skates free again.
The system is void of any legal "teeth". Judges and prosecutors must feel neutered.
Why would this addict think there were consequences for violating probation.
She knows the system can't do much to her.
The judge knows he can't do much to her.
Prosecutors can't do much to her.
It's a sad and pathetic system that can be manipulated by celebrity.

Who would have guessed it!!!!!! I live in Cali and of course the system is a joke. Does anyone who's a star ever go to jail for anything. I don't think so. Hey we elected Arnold for goodness sake. Why would we be capable of doing anything right?

@Brian
She poses no threat to the public???
Really? That's all we need is some coked up, speed head driving on our roads and possibly killing an innocent person. She will never learn, because she never suffers any consequences for her actions.

So... let me get this straight. As long as you have the money to pay for good lawyers, you can snort coke and get high off of Adderall whenever you want. Violate probation and then set bail. Can she really do this forever, be on probation forever and set bail? She's going to end up killing herself and/or others like she doesn't drive while under the influence.
