D.A.'s Offer: Six Months in Jail for Lindsay

2/23/2011 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Lindsay Lohan case tell TMZ ... the offer Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers made to Lindsay's lawyer in chambers was SIX MONTHS in jail.

Judge Keith Schwartz said in open court he had a feeling Shawn Holley would pass on the D.A.'s offer.  That's because Lindsay will not accept jail time -- at least not now.

But here's why we're almost positive Lindsay will eventually cop a plea.  She is going to jail no matter what.

The judge ruled Lindsay's preliminary hearing and probation violation case will be heard at the same time.  At the end of the preliminary hearing, if the judge feels it's more likely than not that she stole the necklace, Lindsay will be thrown in jail immediately while she awaits trial on the grand theft case.

So even if Lindsay is ultimately found not guilty at trial, she'll still be in jail for the probation violation.

Short story ... it's likely Holley will plead guilty or no contest on behalf of her client, and then hope the judge gives Lindsay less than 6 months.

6 months with time off for good behavior + Lindsey being a pain in their a$$ = 1 month?

I hope if she goes to county jail that they put in an order saying no early release like how they did for Paris Hilton several years ago. It's time she got more than a slap on the wrist. I'm so sick of her getting away with everything or having very little punishment (i.e. rehab instead of jail).

So...if she pleads guilty, couldn't she be opening herself up to a potential 1 year sentence and the 6 months for probation violation? Is that how I read it?

Hopefully she will finally be held accountable and this, "Next time you mess up, you'll really be in trouble..." nonsense will stop.

I felt a twinge of sorry for Lindsay when her father couldn't help himself and took the microphone outside the courtroom to trash his ex-wife and promote his FL business partners and motivational speaker. He is never appropriate, it seems.

While her parents are poor excuses for parents, it's still no excuse for her behavior. She's not a little girl, she is an adult.

Again, accountability now!

It's about damn time a judge held this low-life accountable for her repeated felonies. Sheesh, that time she took a group of people hostage on a high-speed cocaine-infused car chase where she ultimately blamed the black kid...should have been enough.
