Lindsay Lohan

I'm Beggin' for Mercy!

Lindsay Lohan
will concede she violated her probation by getting kicked out of her community service program ...TMZ has learned.

Lindsay will appear in court on Wednesday ... where Judge Stephanie Sautner plans to hold a hearing on whether Lindsay violated her probation. But our sources say the hearing may be unnecessary, because Lindsay will not put up a fight.

Sources tell us Lindsay's strategy -- courtesy of Shawn Holley -- is to show the judge she is now really, really serious about complying with the terms of her probation. She'll come to court armed with proof she's logged in 24 hours of service at the morgue -- way more than the 16 hours a week the judge required before Wednesday's hearing. And Lindsay still has time to put in more time.

Lindsay's plan has its risks -- she faces well over a year in jail if the judge throws the book at her. We're told Lindsay is hoping for minimal jail time -- two weeks -- which would actually be way less because of overcrowding.

The wild card, of course, is Judge Sautner, who made it clear at the time of sentencing ... if Lindsay violated probation she would go to jail. Based on the judge's statements ... it's unlikely Lindsay would score a 2-week sentence.

We'll be live streaming Wednesday.  So stay tuned ...

This never ends? Crazy! This young lady really needs a wake-up with realality of the real world. She might not see that now, but sometimes everybody needs it so they don't keep going downhill for the rest of their life.

I blame the justice system, not Lindsay. it's up to them to stop giving her star treatment and hold her accountable for her actions. They would if she was someone else not in entertainment, clearly their all star struck, if that's what you want to call her. lol

We all know she is going to get off. I really wish she had to sit in the general population of a regular old jail. Let her actually learn a lesson and be treated as a human being, same as anyone else.

You deserve none! You have constantly gotten way with everything. It is time you discover that you are not a Goddess among peasants! Sorry your family sucks. Many others do as well. Money does not afford you the right to place others in danger with drunkeness, DWI and being a whore for the world to see and ridicule the US cause you live in it!

why is it we care so much about celebs and their misfortune with the law? dont we have enough of our own problems? Celebs can care less about what we think , they are comfortable with their money and cozy lives ....if we as the public put in half as much interest in other IMPORTANT things imagine how much we could get done in a day. lindsay all we can do is pray and hope for the best anything you want done, you will do it that is all

so how come only the celebrities that really deserve to be in jail always get out because of overcrowding? i don't hear where regular citizens are getting out for that reason.

i'm still holding out hope for lindsay... i'm not a follower or a fan of hers... nothing against her. she just never "caught on" with me. to me, she's a very confused girl who doesn't know how to just "be"... she needs to buy a farm and get away from her entourage and take a few classes... learn how to direct or something. find something more satisfying than drinking and drugging. that's my 2c, and in this economy, that's worth about 1/16th of a cent!

LL, you better stop smoking because your new teeth will start to look as bad as your other teeth. So will your face. I hope they throw your a** in jail. That is where you belong. Put you in there with a large woman who can teach you some things about real life & show you where you could end up if you don't straighten yourself up. I used to like you but now, you will go to hell.

ummmm...one more thing...don't they have house arrest in california? isn't that an option at all instead of letting her just go free? i thought they made bracelets that determined if you drank alcohol. they could drug test her as often as they wanted to. i don't get why this is so hard. humbly pay your debt to society and learn how to live a normal life around normal people. see what normal, everyday people do. it wouldn't kill her to try. :(

Perhpas she is conceding because she realizes it would be futile to pay a lawyer for a full blown hearing on the issue. Unless there is evidence that she did not get tossed from the Downtown Womens' Center, and no one seems to be suggesting anything different -- even Lohan, she violated the terms of her probation. At this point, the focus should be minimizing the sentence for the probaiton violation.

Also, it is possible Lohan's camp does not want a public record regarding what she has done to violate probation. When official do***ents have been released in this case, we often find her conduct was even worse than reported in the media. The official reports often disclose lies from her camp. Conceding the point and foregoing a full blown hearing may be in her best interest.
