Lindsay Necklace Case -- No Contest Plea Tomorrow

5/9/2011 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan will officially plead no contest to misdemeanor theft tomorrow -- TMZ has learned -- but Lindsay won't be showing up in court.

Lindsay Lohan Plea

Sources connected with Lindsay tell TMZ ... Lindsay wants to show up for the plea, but the cost and craziness associated with a Lindsay Lohan appearance is just too much -- what with extra Sheriff's deputies, court disruption, etc.

So Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will appear before Judge Stephanie Sautner to enter the plea.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay will plead no contest, and in such cases it's routine a defendant can serve the sentence with an electronic monitoring device at home, rather than doing jail time.

As we first reported ... both Sheriff's Department and the Probation Department sources tell us ... Lindsay would be eligible to serve her 120-day jail sentence with electronic monitoring at home.

Judge Sautner has made it clear ... she's treating Lindsay like any other defendant, so it's likely the judge will allow her the electronic monitoring option.

And, a defendant who serves time at home with an monitoring bracelet gets the same time off for good behavior and jail overcrowding as someone who serves time in the pokey.  And we're told 120 days translates into 14 DAYS.   So 14 days with a bracelet and she'll be off the hook with the necklace!

TMZ will be in court tomorrow.

Stay tuned.

"Lindsay wants to show up for the plea" --oh my gosh, Harve, you slay me.

Lindsay wants to do her community service! Lindsay wants to show up to court for her plea! Lindsay wants to revive her career! Lindsay wants to take responsibility!

Lindsay wants to lie and get away with murder. LILTY!

How much money did it cost the taxpayers for this thriving BIMBO to get 5 DAYS AT HOME wearing the bracelet of shame?!

The Truth    

Special Treatment

Everything is correct for a first time misdemeanor except that she was and is on probation. The statute does not allow for a person on probation who commits a new crime to serve the new crime at home.

Special Treatment

She will still have to server time in jail for the probation violation.


So anyone that is on probation and commits a new crime you may now serve your time at home. This is a first.

Everyone Appeal your cases.

Woo Hoo

Sometimes Taliban justice of cutting off a hand for theft doesn't sound so bad compared to California's celebrity no-justice.
It makes me puke & Lilo the thief, will have vile karma the entire rest of her snotty lesbo loser life.

Celebrity justice makes me SICK!
-
Since she will, supposedly, be serving her time at home, she shoudl get the FULL 120 DAYS! 'Overcrowding' doesn't mean s**t if she's not going to the jail!
-
She has all you morons fooled. She'll be back to her coke-snorting, binge-drining self within a year. Bank on it.

This is just another attempt by Lohan to avoid going to a jail cell anytime soon so that she can do her time in her 'Venice beach' home without having to go to Lynnwood again. While I do not agree with it, if she is eligible for an anklet again and has to do her time at home, why not?! Our judicial system is crowed, the jails are packed and they would have to accommodate her anyway, by kicking out another 'criminal' to do this. I am tired of this whole Lohan thing anyway. Her career is officially over with, we have much YOUNGER brighter Hollywood Actresses that seem to be able to handle their fame and not get into trouble the way this one has been doing for the past 4 years by not being able to not commit new crimes while on probation, to do what her probation requires of her in the first place, just all the reasons why we need to let her go and move on. The only reason why anyone gives a crap anymore - and it has been said here before - we like to see people who are famous fall-down and fail. And didn't we see this TRAINWRECK coming from a million miles away after 2007? Gee I wonder what is next for this 'former-child-star' after she finishes her probation this go-around. Certainly the Hollyweird community is done with her as well. Regardless of what movie she makes an appearance in, she knows it, the world knows it, she now officially tabloid fodder and a JOKE! A complete and utter late-night JOKE! Go AWAY LOHAN! Your 15 Minutes were up YEARS AGO! It is time to get serious with the newest youngest talent out their not drinking and driving, drug user, probation violater, thief, and just through and through - disaster!

Whomever that is - i am on board - but this train-wreck has already left the station leaving her once formidable fan-base on the train station platform. Have a nice trip you has-been-that-never-was, wherever you end up!
