Judge to Lindsay:

If You Plead,

You're Going to Jail

2/23/2011 2:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan just got the word from the judge -- if she accepts a plea bargain, she WILL go to jail.

022311_lindsay_lohan_hearing_2_video
TMZ broke the story this morning ... the judge will throw Lindsay in jail if she accepts a plea bargain. 

Judge Keith Schwartz told the famous defendant bluntly, "I don't care that you're Lindsay Lohan."

Judge Schwartz did not say how much jail time Lindsay would do if she cops a plea.

And, Judge Schwartz wants a psychological evaluation that will help him understand what makes Lindsay tick and what particular sentence is appropriate.

The judge explained ... if Lindsay pleads guilty or no contest, it will be an automatic admission she violated her probation.

And the judge announced what TMZ first reported ... Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers made a formal offer to settle the case.   Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will noodle over the offer before deciding, but the judge indicated Lindsay's probably not going to accept the D.A.'s offer.  As we reported, Meyers wants significant jail time.

If Lindsay doesn't accept a plea, she'll stand trial and if she's found guilty she could get 1 year in state prison.

Lindsay is back in court on March 10.  She has the option of pleading guilty and basically throwing herself at the court's mercy.

Trichotillomania is defined as a self-induced and recurrent loss of hair.[3] It is classified in DSM-IV as an impulse control disorder with pyromania, pathological gambling and kleptomania, and includes the criterion of an increasing sense of tension before pulling the hair and gratification or relief when pulling the hair.[1] However, some people with trichotillomania do not endorse the inclusion of "rising tension and subsequent pleasure, gratification, or relief" as part of the criteria;[1] because many individuals with trichotillomania may not realize they are pulling their hair, patients presenting for diagnosis may deny the criteria for tension prior to hair pulling or a sense of gratification after hair is pulled.[3]

She is not taking this very seriously, the way she was grinning and drifting while the judge was talking. I thought the judge was very fair and succinct. Of course, Lindsay is in Lalaland and will deny culpability until the cell door slams on her.

Lindsay Lohan is a SOCIOPATH! No therapy will help her. She smirked and rolled her eyes at the end of the hearing, she just cant control her psycopathic impulses.

For the good of Lindsay I think that time in a REAL jail might finally wake her up ...hopefully she won't get off easy like last time, she needs a good hard sentence to set her straight and let her know that she either cleans up her act or her life will be over. Good for the Judge

He should have given her a smack down for all of her sighing and eye rolling. For crying out loud, she's, what, 24? Not 15, geez.
