Lindsay Lohan Prosecutor Runs for D.A.

12/31/2010 1:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan's legal nemesis, L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, has thrown her hat in the ring to become the next D.A.

Meyers, a no-nonsense veteran prosecutor who wanted Lindsay locked up after giving her multiple chances, announced her candidacy this AM.

She's handled multiple hardcore murder cases and is widely respected by judges, prosecutors and even a bunch of defense lawyers.

Meyers has been a D.A. for nearly a quarter of a century and has been named prosecutor of the year.

If elected she'd be the first woman and first African American elected to the non-partisan position.
