Lindsay Lohan May Dodge Jail

5/3/2011 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is poised to avoid jail entirely, despite her 120-day sentence ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay will plead no contest to misdemeanor theft, and it's likely the judge will not increase the 120 day sentence -- in other words, once she serves the 120 days, she's home free.

Now here's the twist.  TMZ has checked with the L.A. County Sheriff's Department -- which runs the jail where Lindsay must serve her sentence.  We're told for non-violent, misdemeanor offenses, the Sheriff's Department routinely allows inmates to serve their time at home, provided they wear an electronic monitoring device.

We're also told the L.A. County Probation Dept. is down with non-violent, misdemeanor offenders serving time at home.

Judge Stephanie Sautner has made it clear -- Lindsay will be treated just like any other defendant, and people in Lindsay's shoes simply don't get put behind bars.

Ironic, isn't it.  She's accused of stealing a necklace, and a bracelet will set her free.

Your right about judges discretion. This judge is a strict and harsh sentencer according to her record so maybe this story about house arrest is wishful thinking, and maybe not. Time will tell.

Serving a given number of days in solitary cell is harder than the same number of days in the general population. Especially if the person in solitary is mentally ill. There is no choice with Lindsay, she has to be isolated. There are a lot of street girls who would enjoy earning creed by handing Lindsay an ass whipping or using her as a toilet or both. The sheriff can't take the chance of that happening.

Still, multiple probation violations, and then a theft might be too much for this judge to not punish hard. I hope so, to me Lindsay should do about 30-40 days in the cell but time will tell what actually happens to her.

I haven't done anything outside of telling them I refuse to fight with them. Don't like my avatar? Report it then. Though the misconception of it being satanic is laughable. You guys should go and research something before calling it something it is not. thank you HB.

Hello. I'm skeptical about the whole Bin laden thing. They should have brought the body back for an autopsy.
