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.

Why can't people understand that she is probably very fragile considering all She's been in trouble for,while trying to recover from her addictions.You know that they ae monitoring her 24/7 which has got ot be making her more anxious.How the hell can a coke dealer wish that she go to jail,when He should be there...Isn't he the reason she had to go to rehab in the first place????Enabling in its' sleaziest form!!!Talk about pot calling the kettle.

Are you really blind or is it that your are a Lindsay fan that you choose to be blind to the facts. Her "fragile" state is her doing. She is not the only person in American that has ****ed up parents or a life. How was her life more ****ed up then ours, what did she ask for cantolope in the morning and got melon instead? Give me a break. Hey luv4lindsay, if she ran over someone you love with her damn car after leaving a night club would you be pissed at her or more concerned over her "Fragile" state? Give me a ****ing break and send the bitch to hail. She will keep doing **** like this because she feels that she is untouchable.

She wants her cake and to be able to eat it too! That is not how the JUDICIAL system works you DIP-WHIT! You go to jail for PV's, depending on severity of the violation and or what your Judge and Probation officers think is best as a consequence for your action! Judge Schwartz is treating her just like any other US AMERICAN CITIZEN on probation FINALLY! And holding her until she goes to trial would be appropriate. And I know this is not even the reason, but she is a FLIGHT RISK! She needs to be held, brought into jail, in her jumpsuit like everyone else. Judge Schwartz really is going to handle this case FINALLY appropriately and deserving-ly so! Lohan, suck it up, you're going to jail and there is NOTHING Holly can do to get you out of the mess YOU created!
