Lindsay Lohan

Probation Dept. Sides with Her!

10/18/2011 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_indsay_lohan_smirk_ex
Lindsay Lohan will get some critical support when she goes to court tomorrow ... Probation Department sources tell TMZ the Dept. thinks Lindsay has done most of what she's required to do, and they will NOT recommend that she be thrown in jail.

Our sources say ... the Probation Dept. officials will tell the judge in a written report that Lindsay is in "substantial compliance" with the terms of her probation.  They concede she was kicked out of the Downtown Women's Center for habitually failing to show up, but they note that Lindsay has a year to complete 360 hours of community service, and she's still on track.

And, sources say, the Probation Dept. has been in touch with Lindsay's shrink, who says she has gone "regularly."  The shrink did not address Judge Stephanie Sautner's directive that Lindsay go for therapy once a week -- because she hasn't.  But, we're told, the shrink is still satisfied.

We're told the report will note that Lindsay has completed her shoplifting course.

Judge Sautner made it clear ... if Lindsay violated any court order, she would go to jail.  So now it's up to Herhonner to decide if Lindsay went astray or whether a few missteps don't count.

The hearing is set for Wednesday at 10 AM.

We'll be livestreaming everything.

HOW can probation make this judgement?? If it was ANY of the rest of us...we'd just getting OUT of jail. This is a judiciary joke and the judge just keeps it going. You can't keep telling a child your going to punish them, but never do it and have them afraid of the consequences.

A short lesson on the legal system from Don Henley:


Today I made an appearance downtown
I am an expert witness, because I say I am
And I said, 'Gentleman, and I use that word loosely
I will testify for you
I'm a gun for hire, I'm a saint, I'm a liar
Because there are no facts, there is no truth,
just data to be manipulated
I can get you any result you like
What's it worth to you?
Because there is no wrong, there is no right
And I sleep very well at night
No shame, no solution
No remorse, no retribution
Just people selling t-shirts
Just opportunity to participate in the patheti*****tle circus
And winning, winning, winning' "

TMZ does this EVERY SINGLE TIME. To provide drama, a week before her court date, TMZ lists all the ways in which she's violated her probation and all the reasons why she is 100% going to jail. Then a day or two before court, suddenly "new details emerge" which partially defend Lohan's bs. Then the court day gets here, and the judge acts like a p*ssy, going back on what they've said and threatened in the past, accepting all of Lohan's bs excuses, and just giving her a firm talking to, no matter what rules she's broken or nonsense she's done.

I remember one time years ago that latina actress from Lost had some clerical error in community service, where her lawyer took responsibility and she had sheriff's deputies testify that she wasn't at fault for the error. The woman was genuinely doing everything properly, but 1 SINGLE day of service that wasn't recorded properly resulted in her getting a 6 MONTH jail sentence for which she served like 3 weeks in general population. OH AND, I just read on Wiki, that when she got out, she had to do ROADSIDE TRASH PICK UP!!! theres pix online of her in gear liftin huge bags of trash w/cars zippin by, standing next to a bunch of big thuggy dudes also doing service.

Yet Lohan can sit there and BLATANTLY violate the terms of her probation REPEATEDLY, and get nothing more than stern words and a breezy service at an air conditioned building where she files papers and shows up in designer shoes with see-thru tops like a dang ho.

I dont know if it's just that she's white and "rich", or if they're blowing somene or paying someone off, but this crap is WACK.

I want to say good for Lohan, getting her act together blah blah blah, but if she's blowing off duties, putting things off, getting booted for a bad attitude, etc then clearly nothing has changed, at least in terms of her entitled attitude and disregard for responsibility. Does she need JAIL for being a spoiled brat? Maybe not but something has to give because this sets a horrible example for everyone, the kind of crap she gets away with!!!

According to ROL she's walking into court with her bail bondsman!

------------
This is called being smart and prepared.
She can post bail at the courthouse and will be booked then maybe placed in a holding cell but she won't be transported to jail.

Very well said, couldn't have put it better myself! I heard the reason she was removed from the DWC was because the paps kept trying to follow her inside and take photos which she did not approve of, and the DWC were sick of dealing with the paps, so they had to let Lindsay go for their sake.

Sweet.

So... she "substantially" complied with everything except the things she "completely" did not comply with. Makes perfect sense.

Certainly the court and Miss Lohan have a symbiotic relationship. Lohan by running around high on drugs or alcohol committing crimes left and right and not complying with court orders generates for herself much needed publicity while the court gets their 15 minutes of fame. Let me say I am not impressed. From the OJ criminal trial where the judge was the husband of the highest ranking woman in the LAPD, to Johnnie Cochran's racist plea to engage in jury nullification every time these clowns and their corrupt city are on display makes me hope a Japan-style earthquake/tsunami event wipes the whole lot off the face of the earth.
