Lindsay Lohan: I'm the Victim of a Witch Hunt

4/25/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan believes prosecutor Danette Meyers is on a "witch hunt" against her, and is praying the Deputy D.A. makes good on what she asked the judge -- drop out of the case.

0424_lindsay_danette_ex_tmz
Sources in contact with Lindsay tell us ... Lindsay believes she's become a living, breathing press release for Meyers, who is running for L.A. County District Attorney.

There are several flaws in Lindsay's theory.  First, Meyers asked Judge Stephanie Sautner Friday to remove her from the case.  Since the judge knocked the felony charge down to a misdemeanor, Meyers assumed the case would be transferred to the L.A. City Attorney.  But the judge noted the D.A. can still prosecute the case if it wants to ... so Meyers' request was denied.

Second flaw -- Meyers has prosecuted hundreds of big cases in her more than 2 decades as a prosecutor, and is extremely well-respected, so she really doesn't need a misdemeanor theft case all that much.

Right, Lindsay has issues, but we all know that prosecutor would look damn good with Lohan put behind bars for awhile and we all know it. No, she doesn't need another misdemeanor conviction on her belt, but she would look great to voters with Lindsay's misdemeanor conviction on her belt, or felony conviction which she really wanted, and now that it's gone, she's not interested anymore. Lindsay needs a long amount of community service spent in the morgue and see addicts family's and how devastated they are, and drunk driving victims. I think she should have a year of community services working with poor, and sick. Maybe these will scare her and make her think.

Good riddance!    

A sociopath like Lowhan won't be affected by working in a morgue on an emotional level. She doesn't respect the living, so why would she respect the dead? She will only be pissed by the gore and the smell and will think that it is beneath her, so she won't learn a thing. She is a person who always chooses to point the finger at someone else when she screws up.

Yeah, and Marcia Clark & Johnny Cochran were "well-respected" lawyers, but they didn't get priority seating at Spago's or their names on the front page of the L.A. Times before the O.J. trial...

It's nobody's fault but her own. If she kept her nose clean and just laid low for a while, she wouldn't have these problems.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lindsay had a personality disorder of the narcissistic sort.

Meyers will probably win her appeal to keep this a felony because LL doesn’t qualify for a measure 17 reduction since she was on probation when the theft occurred. Measure 17 = zero previous crimes. And *Meyers will stay on to try the case as a felony not a misdemeanor*.

Holley will lose her appeal so LL will go to jail for 120 days less overcrowding, plus more jail if convicted at trial. Then 480 hrs community service = 40 hrs/wk for 3 months… she could barely get herself to weekly one-hour alcohol classes, she’s gonna have to change her ways or spend a lot more time in jail. Really a very smart judge.

But, from the sounds of it LL's argument is totally bogus. Good job TMZ putting some context to this story.
