Lindsay Judge Claims TMZ Is CIA

3/10/2011 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's judge is pissed ... that TMZ got information about his sentencing recommendation even though he wanted it held confidential ... this, as he has given Lindsay more time to mull over his sentencing offer that WILL involve jail time.

Lindsay Lohan Case
Judge Keith Schwartz was beside himself, saying he told lawyers on both sides to keep the sentencing proposal under wraps.  We posted a story shortly after the meeting, saying the judge would impose a sentence -- possibly 3 months in jail -- if Lindsay pled guilty or no contest.

In court today ... Judge Schwartz said we should work for the CIA.  Compliment accepted.

The judge has sent the case to another judge -- Stephanie Sautner -- for a preliminary hearing, but he's giving her one more chance to accept his offer.  Lindsay will be back in court before Judge Schwartz on March 25, and she can plead either guilty or no contest to the grand theft charge. 

If Lindsay doesn't accept the plea, Judge Sautner will hold a preliminary hearing on April 22.  At the same time Judge Sautner will decide if Lindsay violated her probation -- and it's virtually a sure bet the judge will rule Lindsay did indeed violate it.  At that point Lindsay will go to jail as she awaits trial.

Word to Lindsay -- TAKE THE PLEA!

How long can it possibly take to lock her up? The Nuremberg Trials didn't take this long...

Linsday is innocent, the store is motivated by greed, and that's clear as water. Concentrate on the real criminals, like polanski

Im sorry but MEL GIBSON gets no jail time for beating his spouse and putting a child in danger this makes no sense to me! Sorry lindsay was had by this jeweler and she should have realized it!! They wanted a quick buck that is why they didnt want to press charges on her because they wanted money they made 40k for video and now the necklace is being sold unreal!! Dont see how the crimial case can move forward without the item in question this is a travesty of justice and Cali is already in financial ruin and we can all see why!!

Because this entire scenario has been well-orchestrated by both the Defense and Prosecutor to ensure they stay in the public eye for as long as possible. It's narcissism run amuck...California style!

Everyone knows that Lilo and her slimey family keep TMZ and RADAR ONLINE updated with the inside info re her legal woes.
She and Shawn both smirked all morning thinking they'd put one over on the judge. Shawn is just as sneeky as her mentor,Johnny Cochran.

What the hell? If the judge wants to know the identity of the leak, look no further than DINA LOHAN!!! Hello?!

What a crock. The coke-head herself makes a freakin' living off of selling "news" items about LieLo.

The police tipped her off regarding the search. Someone in the DA office must be selling the news as her side has no interest in doing that.

What about taking care about these leaks before they try to railroad her on the marketing stunt the shop has made.

Lindsay looks happy, probably giddy to find out she isn't going straight to jail. Poor thing!

Lets see she had it on for 25 minutes and the clerk cheerfully opens the door for her to walk out with it on in plain view. I think she has a good argument that they both just forgot she had it on and in court thats reasonable doubt for a jury.

Oh God, now Lindsay is going to go on Charlie rants. Instead of Warlocks and trolls it will be FBI and CIA. Brace for impact people!
