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.

I know it won't happen but I would laugh my ass off if the judge took the exact opposite view and sentenced her to 8 months in jail for the theft and the probation violation.

She has had too many probation violations and now a theft charge to avoid some jail time anywhere else but California. With the states overcrowding she would be out in about 40 days if sentenced to 240 so why would that be so unfair?

Paris is the only person who has the right to be pissed off if Lindsay does no jail time.

If she chooses this option she is absolutely stupid. She would have to do the entire 120 days, as there's no "overcrowding" on house arrest.

Hey everybody, wouldn't it be great if the judge gave
a remote control to me so that every time I hit a
button it sends shock waves to Lindsey's bony ankle.
Oh and then lets put Lindsey into a chair and turn
her into a clockwork orange.

The predatory witch has been dropped from the case. Duhnette has been tko'd by Lindsay. The case has been transferred to the LA DA's office. Now Duhnette can give up on her vendetta against Lindsay and take a look at all the murder cases on her desk that she has been ignoring to concentrate on Lindsay's case. Ya know Duhnette, all those crips and bloods and mexican mafia members that go around shooting up LA everyday.

Lindsay is hot in the same way that Osama is breathing. And they both smell like three day old fish.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Is she sleeping with the Judge? Oh, yeah, she's a Lesbian. Why does this ugly, old woman (at least she looks old), keep getting away with criminal behavior? She's a druggie, an alcoholic, a liar, and a thief. She will always be until some Judge throws her in Jail. She is truly pathetic! Her stupid appearance on Jay Leno made me even more convinced that she has severe mental problems. She has a HUGE ego and didn't seem to think she has any problems. She's NUTS!!!

Jesus Christ already. This is NOT how any non-celebrity multiple repeaat offender is treated by the justice system.

Most people don't even look at TMZ, so these so called "stories" that TMZ is inventing aren't read by the general public and by people who even care. No one cares at all about Lindsay, ask any older man, or even any young man, or any female. You'll hear the same answer, she "looks washed up, hard and wants attention".

If the Lohan's think these stories are fueling her popularity, they're not. Really, no one gives a damn about her anymore. It's over.

We all know how well lilo and those pesky ankle bracelets get along.

She probably will pry it off and put it on her dogs collar.

Scram a ram a ding dong! Hell there is cocaine to be had!
