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!

Plea!? Hell No, baby sister! Nobody can use the video at trial. It's now your word against a predatory retailer that has gotten himself on the map over this. And this Prosecutor needs to find another victim. I'd counter for defamation.

I'm no Lindsay fan but it's like the jewelry store pull a scam on her. Maybe it's just karma.

Why was Lindsay's lawyer making googley eyes and smiling at the prosecutor the entire time?

No, her Lawyer was just being disrespectful by smirking. Nothing new here. I've seen it countless time from other lawyers. Remember, however disrespectful this Lawyer is, or appears to be, she is getting a large check, and dragging this case out further, pads her bank account even more. However, as long as she has Ms. Lohan as a client, I don't think she will ever go hungry. And TMZ has a hand in this now as the judge has admonished them for releasing confidential information.

TMZ is becoming a sleazy service (program) as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed watching it a month or so ago, but the program has become self serving by any means possible, and apparently, now interfering with the courts is a badge of honor to Mr. Levin.

Speaks volumes about his lack of character.


TMZ Cares.....about revenue.

Too funny, TMZ :) Maybe the Judge needs to check his own ranks for the leak rather than some underpaid lacky at the lawyer's offices.

If Lindsay would accept responsibility (big IF) for everything she has done and throw herself on the mercy of the court, she could still turn things around for herself and rebuild herself but she won't - she's girl-sheen...nothing wrong with me, I'm PERFECT!

Instead of saying "Compliment accepted" why not just name your source TMZ? I dare you! Say the security guard, filing clerks or the secretary leak the information to you for money. LOL

Well for one sure fact, next confidential meeting between Holly and Denette get leaked, we'll know for sure who TMZ "Source" is.

Oh-- Harvey favor line "I'M A LAWYER!"

Judge Schwartz is a nutless putz. Judge Sautner has more balls than this guy and she's a woman. At least Sautner will put LieLo the ho-skank in her smirky place.

Just you wait LieHo, the bell will toll for thee in the name of Sautner.

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.

Sure if that had been her story from the beginning. But it wasn't. First she said it was on loan. Then when the store said we do paperwork for that, she changed her story again. When the store tried to contact her she should have answered the phone and returned it.. had she not been tipped off she would have been searched and the necklace found in her possession weeks after her little lapse in memory. It's not the footage that makes her guilty it's her actions afterward that do. You don't need to make up three different lying stories if you 'just forgot it'. And in court those are the things that will make jury question her.. which lie is the truth?

Everybody does stupid sh*t in life and makes mistakes and uses bad judgment sometimes, especially when you're young, that's part of growing up...too bad her life is being played out in front of these cameras...hope Lindsey learns from all of this and grows into the person she truly needs to be...Stay strong girl....
