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.

She will take it to trial and count on being able to get one sympathetic person on the jury. Remember, this is the state of California we are talking about.

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

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That doesn't sound right. If she's not guilty then why are you saying she violated probation? Not true.

NOT commiting a crime is not a violation. She would have to be found guilty of committing a crime in order to have violated her probation.

Would someone from edit get in here and correct this please.

Thank you.

Some girl I was chatting with on the TMZ site said that she goes to all of the same clubs Lindsay did and runs with the same people and the consensus is that she is a mental case. She said as far as they know she is sober, but she is still crazy and entitled.

LiLo has to many friends who are power brokers in Hollywood. LiLo won't do one day. LiLo is calling in her markers...She will skate on the unjust charges. LiLo's Army also announced mass protests that are threatening to shut down LA.

Okay, here is the problem I have with this. So, if the JUDGE at the hearing THINKS that Lindsay did the crime, he can revoke her probation, and she can sit in jail until trial. Here is the problem, I have with this...this is presuming guilt, and she could still be found not guilty, in which case she did NOT violate her probation, but yet had it revoked anyway on the assumption that she was guilty? Celebrity or not, is the the precedence we want set with regards to justice? I mean, if they can do it to Lindsay, they sure as "you know what" will do it to an ordinary citizen, and that is NOT justice! What happened to innocent until PROVEN guilty? If she is guilty, then let her do her time, but don't treat her as such until it is proven, or it is setting the wrong precedence for everyone else.

@Italia--

Not true. The burden of proof is MUCH different in probation cases. The judge only has to find that it is LIKELY that Lindsay stole the necklace to revoke her probation and she would then do her sentence for the revocation. Although it might not be the entire 6 months, she would still go to jail.

And why in the hell are her lips getting fuller with each hearing? She has the money and time to get her lips augmented, but she couldn't be bothered paying for the necklace??

Give me a break.

One positive note; her mother FINALLY showed up to support her. Where has Dina been during all of this? Partying in New York??

No wonder Lindsay is a mess. Both her parents could give a cr@p about her.

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.

OMG, he did NOT - did he???? What a POS. I mean, really!

#1, no one in the universe wants to hear you trash talking your ex, Michael, especially at this time. Don't you think you helped to create the Lindsay monster by talking like this (Dina is also guilty of the same.)

#2, no one CARES about your stupid business OR partners. You're just gross...and pathetic.

I'd by lying if I said I wasn't irritated that we didn't get a fresh mugshot today. I mean, I'm having coasters made - it's like my production timeline means nothing to them.

Finally. Lets hope this means 6 months without Lindsay in the news. imagine the peace. Shes like a thorn in celebrity media. And no matter how much she pretends shes annoyed by the attention she loves it, its so obvious. IT means money for her and she needs it for her ego like air because she has nothing else in her life.
