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.

There's no way she should do significant jail time.

But, in honor of Lindsey, I would like to propose a Sheen - free day.

Come on TMZ, it's like quitting cigarettes. The first day is the hardest.

You email Lindsay's attorney? Don't you think that's just a bit much? I mean, really girl, that is some serious stalker sh*t.

Lindsay needs to go to jail/or/prison period. There is NO WAY that she will stay out of trouble for 3 years if on 3-year probation. GEES, she could not stay out of trouble between leaving REHAB on Jan 3, 2011 and the pre-set date that she has with that Judge Fox on Feb 25th regarding her previous DUI's & other messes she has been in. Wonder if this case will "pre-empt" her other court date on Friday, Feb 25th?

Any time you have years of the kind of mother that makes excuses for you, you need jail time to snap you out of it.

Since Lindsay has no paperwork showing that the necklace was a loan, any and all pictures showing her walking around town wearing the necklace just further prove her guilt.

I'm surprised that you would think that would help her... lol

Lindsay needs to get on her knees and pray to the Lord for forgiveness and donate her money to a Church Group. Now I know people who read this will think I am crazy no I am not. Look around you people. we do not have a lot of time to get right with God. Our days are numbered.... Amen

If I were Lindsay Lohan I would run away to somewhere I couldnt be extradited and give the judge the bird for trying to set an example.. even if shes guilty the crime is petty! no one was hurt the property was returned... BEFORE the warrant could be given. No harm No foul? she was just borrowing it.. lol dont her tax dollars more then cover the police investigation etc? lets not nit pick at Hollywood or its cash cows ...maybe shes not rich enough yet maybe if she was a LAKER or a football player it would be overlooked.

Hey Nicole,staging a photo from your camera phone to look as if she is wearing it in public is a joke and to pretend her lawyer has evidence that would deter Myers from taking the case to trial is a last gasp of spin,you Trollhans are pathetic losers..Lilty
