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.

@ Nicole You said: "Woo Hoo I was right. 120 days with good behavior and overcrowding is 2 weeks max"

Congratulations.

Now... let's hope Lindsay makes her tomorrows matter. Time will only tell on that one. So far... she has done a pretty good job of jumping out of the pot into the fire. Maybe this time will be different. Time will tell.

I pray God will continue to do whatever it takes to save this young and confused girl.

There is a bottom out there somewhere for Lindsay. Let's hope this was it.

Looked up the date LL due in court for her pre-trial hearing is Wed, May 11th. So if SCH goes in on Tues, May 10th to enter plea, that means that SCH has worked out a private hearing with the judge. Sounds like SCH is back testing the waters with what the judge will permit to get the case over with.
HMMMMMMMMM

Sounds more and more like SCH will say that if terms are good (no extra time or probation, defer adjuication or prosecution until after CS done; possibly change venue for CS so LL has a fighting chance to complete it, etc.) then a deal will be struck.

You know LL wants to be off scot-free.

Never understood that whole Eat crow thing. But the last time you guys were saying us "haters" were going to eat Crow she ended up with 480 hours of community service and was still taken to Lynnwood.

So I wouldn't be counting my chickens before they hatched.

Whomever is throwing that eat Crow party....
I hope you prepared early.

"In California, killing crows is legal with a license during the state-approved hunting season, from Dec. 3 to April 5, but most cities prohibit discharging firearms within their limits. Federal law states that crows cannot be killed outside hunting season unless they constitute a health hazard."

House arrest for both violations by the SHERIFFS DEPT" will be how this all goes down!!! Victory crow party forthcoming.
-----------------------------------

ow is 120 days and a 7th mug shot and tons of CS a victory.

Let me spin it outside the denial zone...

"We are so happy that LL finally has a chance to take responsibility to her victim and the justice system and put this behind her. We believe that she has been dealt with fairly"

The cameras could be on her outside the courthouse and she could slit someone's throat yet she'd still get a slap on the wrist.

Did I hear Mr. Levin say he /tmz wanted to *hear* us on the Lindsay case ?
well once again Ms. Lohan and her daily affairs and rumored court tactics are HUGE news and VERY important topics of discussion around the water coolers, online gossip sites and dinner tables across America and even across 'the pond' in England..
I think she is ..LINNOCENT !!!!!!!

Nicole... your right about July 6 , it was a disaster . My point is that a plea has too many risks because she is Lindsay Lohan . I do not think that she stole this necklace , she is just scatter brained... she was in the store after hours maybe she felt some urgency to leave and forgot it. It is not what she did that caused the big mess. It is what others did after and all that was because of who she is.
The store could have chilled out and just called her. The DA could have looked at what happened and not charged heror charged her differently ,,,but NO ...they all want a piece of her and now ..if she pleads they will get it .either way she is not in control and she loosesbig time .
