She continually blames it on a "misunderstanding" - NEWSFLASH - that excuse only works the first 8 times.

Who cares! Always a spoiled brat...... I really feel sorry for her but she has to help herself at this point because no one else can do it for her.

Ummm 'yer Honor. I'd like to propose a recess so I can go get my nail redone for the appropriate FU painted onto it.

Who cares anymore?! She does this because she gets away with it. What's having a bad record when you get a free out of jail card each time. I just wish ONCE a judge will get sick of her crap and actually FORCE her to stay in jail for her entire sentence. They want to be treated just like regular human beings but yet as soon as they get caught breaking the law they want to use their fame to the advantage. It sickens me.

If this goes to trial... i.e. no plea bargain deal struck.... how long until the trial starts? How backed up are the CA courts?

Are we talking weeks? months???

And would someone who actually knows CA law please explain what happens now to her probation? Does it automatically get violated now that the felony charge has been filed?

Is she entitled to bail on the felony charge? on the probation violation?

I'm confused and I'd like to understand all this....

I guess my bottom line question is... is she going to jail anytime soon and if so, for which... felony charge with no bail? or probation violation?

thanks in advance

Yes Dina it's time to just how good an actress Blohan can be. The only thing is there's never going to be an academy award for this.

This is so unfair! Everyone knows Jamie Lee Curtis is the one who should be arrested! Jamie Lee Curtis has been in Lindsay Lohan's body since one pretty freaky Friday back in 2003. Jamie Lee Curtis is the one who does all of this.

Isn’t it funny that as soon as Lindsay got out of rehab she met with Jamie Lee Curtis in a hotel lobby? That’s because she was actually meeting with the real Lindsay Lohan in an attempt to gain her body back but unfortunately the only thing that can reverse the curse is a glass of grape juice drunken by someone who has had no cocaine or Activia yogurt in their system for at least 24 hours.

Needless to say neither Lindsay or Jamie Lee Curtis have been able to achieve this.
