Lindsay Lohan Case Referred to District Attorney

1/6/2011 7:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ...  Lindsay Lohan's fate is now in the hands of the Riverside County District Attorney, who will decide whether to charge her in the Betty Ford brouhaha with the former staffer.

The Palm Desert Police Department has turned its investigation over to the D.A., who will decide whether to charge Lohan with battery.

The case would be an uphill battle, because alleged victim Dawn Holland says she will not cooperate and does not want Lindsay prosecuted.

No word on when the D.A. will make a decision.

That's not true you can still be violated on probation even if you beat the charge. Its all up to your P.O. . My cousin was violated for domestic violence charge that he beat cause she lied about it and he was still violated. Any police contact for any reason can be grounds for violation just gotta have a cool P.O.

Holland certainly CAN be subpoenaed and compelled to testify. She can also be asked whether or not anyone has paid or offered to pay her for not cooperating. If this goes to court, it will come out.

I can guarantee you that if this was a Latina woman, even with money; she would be prosecuted to the fullest extent. Thank God, that the Palm Desert DA has some integrity to pursue this further. Not in the hands of Los Angeles County, who is so damn blindsided by those they “think” are famous. The well being of the everyday hard working citizen doesn’t matter to them, it’s all about the kick-backs, the money under the table, and you name it. The American people aren’t stupid. Lindsay Lohan, her mother and father, are law breakers who think because Lindsay was once an actress – once, they are above the law and better than the rest of humanity, they are very ill people, and it is time to move on away from them, and lock Lindsay up, and not for a short time, this low life, needs to be taught a lesson. She isn’t clean, never will be, she is an addict and she loves it. She doesn’t care if she kills someone!! She is in a treatment facility, and she still abuses the lives of other people. This worker was obviously paid off, and everyone knows it. No one is going to allow wasted pieces of crap like Lindsay to abuse them. Lindsay is over, and it’s time she, and her dirty ass parents are aware of this, leave Los Angeles, and move far away, start life with your drug and alcohol addiction and let innocent people live their lives without the fear of her coming around the corner high on something and killing them. WAKE UP!!!! Her luck is running out, or should I say the luck of those that would come in contact with her. She is mentally ill, and needs long term treatment. She looks like a 50 year old woman…that’s been rode hard and put up wet more than once!

Bribing people to silence them in court is just as illegal as hitting them.

It is completely pointless if Riverside decides to file charges when the alleged victim isn't even cooperating.
Also with the exception of the "Daisy Lane night tech" the other witnesses are Lindsay's roommates that she became friends with in rehab. Her roommates Kelly and Shannon said that Lindsay was not drinking and was getting her hair done.

As dumas1000 said Lindsay obviously wouldn't take a plea deal
and it is highly unlikely that she would be found guilty.

@The Truth
No one even knows what Dawn Holland said to the police. The do***ent that she gave to TMZ was the Betty Ford incident report not the police report.

I think it's kind of funny that Lindsay would avoid jail by going to a rehab in the same county that busted RDJ on a PV

I agree with #12, we are counting on you to hang the hot chick!!! I too would like to see her cry in court again. Her voice was so husky and unconvincing. Her fingernail said it all..how she feels above the law.
