Dogfight Over Lindsay Getting Home Detention

5/10/2011 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will almost certainly avoid jail when she's sentenced Wednesday for misdemeanor theft, but there's a war brewing over how much time she'll be locked up at home.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay will not have to serve more than the 120-day sentence for the probation violation.  Sources in the Sheriff's Department have told TMZ ... based on all the good time credits inmates get, as well as discounted time for jail overcrowding, Lindsay would only have to serve roughly 14 days and she'd be good to go.

But now L..A. County Spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ ... based on what the Department has done in the past, Lindsay may not get the credit jail inmates get based on overcrowding.  Short story -- for a 120-day sentence, without giving Lindsay the overcrowding credit, she'd have to serve roughly 84 DAYS.

Sources connected with the case tell us ... Lindsay would still get her 36 days credit for good time, but that means she couldn't leave her home for 84 days. 

Good news ... she can almost see the ocean.

When this is over, can we stop giving Lindsey free publicity? I for one, would never watch a movie or TV program that she was in and quite frankly I am tired of seeing her photo on TMZ. She is not newsworthy. Find some reaL talent and talk about them and their accomplishments.

Has not happened yet and already this deal is going sour. Still say she ought to take the thing to trail . Make it as expensive on the C A as possible . This case ought to be dropped .
Lindsay is loosing so much even thinking about taking a plea . There is reasonable doubt all over this mess, I think it is winnable . If it is not she will be not much worse off. She is already into months of CS and Probation ,so it will go on for at least another year . On top of that she is sure to foul up again , Look how easy it was for her to get into this mess that she cant get out of . Hell she is not done with the DUI's from 4 years ago . She can not get out of LA as long as this go's on and the long she stays the better the chance of another mess.

Knew it!

"Overcrowding" isn't an excuse for time off when you're serving time at home.

I doubt Lindsay will get into too much trouble at home but she still probably has another year of probation to get through while keeping her nose clean.

Instead of...you know...full of coke.

It's funny to me that TMZ gets so many things wrong, yet takes credit for "predicting" what would happen to Lindsay. For MONTHS on end we hear Harvey say "There is NO way she will escape jail. Absolutely NO way she can get out of jail time". Now they are claiming "As we predicted, Lindsay will almost certainly not step foot in jail but serve her sentence at home". Um, WHEN did you "predict" this? TODAY. But for months you constantly said without any doubt Lindsay would get locked up. So really you idiots have no clue wtf you're talking about. How can you go from "there is literally no way for her to avoid jail time" to "she won't step foot inside a jail cell"??? Idiots.

And it gets even more insane. I read on another site that even on house arrest, they will be allowing her ass to go to work on movies. So basically....she got off and is without punishment. She gets to go out and film movies, then go home. You mean....she lives the way NORMAL people do by going to work and coming home!? WOW what a punishment!! This is insane and the judge should be kicked in the face for letting this girl get away with everything.

Good riddance!    

On the plus side for Blohan, she won't have to go crawling through bathrooms and desperately banging on random stalls to find her supplier and she can just have it home delivered!
