Lindsay Judge to Broker Plea Deal With Jail Time

2/23/2011 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The judge who will determine Lindsay Lohan's fate in the probation and grand theft cases will be the middleman in plea negotiations today between Lindsay and the prosecutor ... and sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... the judge thinks Lindsay should do time.

Lindsay will appear today before Judge Keith L. Schwartz, and sources connected with the case tell TMZ that during the hearing prosecutor Danette Meyers will present Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, with a formal offer to plea bargain the case.

Sources tell us Meyers has already told Holley any deal will include significant jail time ... but Lindsay steadfastly refuses to accept a plea that involves time behind bars.

Sources connected with the case tell us Judge Schwartz will propose that Lindsay accept jail time for the probation violation and three years felony probation for the grand theft case. But here's the BIG problem with that -- if Lindsay gets in trouble during the probationary period, she'll go to state prison.

We're told Holley has not seen the surveillance video yet, but Meyers will present her with her very own CD tomorrow -- before the hearing.

If Lindsay doesn't accept a plea, the judge will set a date for a preliminary hearing.

UPDATE: Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, as of early this morning, Lindsay insists she's innocent and is ready to go to trial to clear her name.

Yeah, the crotch shot dress didn't work out to well for her. You would think at this point she would go for the "normal look" not the tart look. Just shows SO MUCH DISRESPECT for the court. Broad has mashed potatoes for brains

Well if I was her Lawyer I would sure be advising her to be dressed more conservative, but I think we all know Lindsay and following legal advice and otherwise do not go together.

LILO IS A FIFTH RATE, WASHED UP, SPOILED BRAT ACTRESS. SHE HAS ZERO COMPREHENSION OF WHAT BEING NORMAL IS. EVERYWHERE SHE GOES TROUBLE SEEMS TO JUMP OUT OF HER PURSE AND FIND HER.

The only "break" Lindsay needs is from herself..she is her worse enemy and gets herself in these situations and then whines everyone is "out to get her". It's common sense to lay low weeks and days before such a court date. Not to mention it takes a very long time for a recovering addict to be able to function at social settings. But not Lindsay she goes to clubs and tries to get into parties with ONLY a few MONTHS of recovery. This girl has NO common sense, plus she's not even a real celebrity anymore. She WAS a child actor..nothing more nothing less. After all is said and done with her legal issues she needs to take time and figure what to do with her life. She cannot handle this lifestyle and needs to move on with the idea that she's still a celebrity that people want to see in movies. She's young enough to move on to a normal life and career.

No, the drugs, booze and the constant images of her out clubbing have fueled this, and also is what led to her downfall and susequent criminal cases

"... but Lindsay steadfastly refuses to accept a plea that involves time behind bars"

Lindsay lohan is arrogance personified. What a total & complete dumbass. Hey lindsay; any plea bargain you get is a gift. And, in case no one explained to you how the real world works, you don't get to set the conditions of a plea bargain; it's ultimately in the hands of the prosecution.

The stupid wh*re definitely needs to serve time behind bars, and not some "paris hilton" 27 minutes. 6 months behind bars, complete with inmate beatdowns & them stealing all her stuff should just about do it...

Hey Idiot, you should change your name to Moron it's more fitting.

Paris was sentenced to 45 days and served 23 of them in jail. That's a higher percentage of her sentence served then most ordinary offenders in the LA Jail. Yet to her your ignorant hateful version of events she only spent 27 minutes in jail and got off easy. Moron.

What's funny on the Livestream is listening to the photographer's slam Lindsay and her mother. I heard someone say, "she's down on her knees", the mother was "getting her nails and hair done yesterday" (probably getting a fresh FU on the nail) and "just throw her in jail already" It's really evident that the paps can't stand Lilo and her family. They are only there to get the money shot.

"Lindsay is innocent!
Stop the hate..."

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

Lindsay put that necklace around her own neck, and when she got caught speeding no one was driving but Lindsay.

It has nothing to do with anybody BUT Lindsay, so if there's hate involved, she must hate herself.

Take the deal!

1. 6 Months Jail / Day for Day / No Early Release / 21 Day Crdt
2. No Probation / Jail time covers that
3. Convicted Felony Record / Expunged in three years

The problem is that she will do something STUPID/UNLAWFUL if she has to do jail time and be on probation anymore. She cannot and proves continually that she does not understand the law and how it pertains to her as a citizen. She thinks entitlement and behaves that way. I have seen this before when an addict thinks about how can I get away with using, avoid getting caught by my probation officer and then find themselves back facing their Judge for a violation. It is the oldest 'delusional' thinking out their amongst addicts and people on probation.
