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.

It's shame that she has brought herself to a low point in her life. Great actor too, but she needs something stronger then the slaps on the hand.....she need a rude awakening, for her sake. Maybe they should make the electronic device a nakelace with a cam in it, and make her wear it all the time,hopefully this will safe her LIFE.

Idk why she would still something when all she has to do is buy it. WOW this is so stupid I once liked her when she was playing on older movies and she was a better person but her life is going so far down the toilet. I do not understand these people out there that has everything and they don't care, but the people that don't have much and would love to be them is struggling. I do not see why they act so stupid to throw there life away.

She would benefit from some time in a lockup; this woman does not see how close to being dead she has come. Look at your career, lady. Do you see a Charlie Sheen in your future?
