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 ...

WHY CAN'T TMZ GET IT THROUGH THEIR BRAIN...The judge ordered THIRTY TWO HOURS of Community Service.

Is it that they still aren't paying attention? Or, is it that they just don't want to conceed to the mistake they've continually made so they are just going with 16 over and over again?

Even that trash website x17online has been able to figure the order out. TMZ...YOU ARE IDIOTS.

LOOK AT THE TAPE.

It's cruel and unusual to send her to a battered women's shelter.

The judge publicly stigmatized the offender as someone who is immature and not to be respected. Then she sends her to a place where women have been emotionally and physically abused. Who is better at creating an abusive environment than women who are victims of abuse? And the judge sent Lohan there with the pre-ordained distinction of someone who should be taught a lesson. And what do abused women teach? Abusive conduct. It's no wonder she failed.

The concept of community service is to generate something positive for everyone instead of costing the government for incarceration. It's not supposed to be a scared straight program. It's certainly not chain-gang lite. Scared straight is a shock and awe thing. Chain gangs are supervised by professional jailers with tons of training. Community service is supposed to be positive and productive for all.

Lohan is a non-violent offender. And as it becomes clearer that her problems are medical rather than behavioral, those involved seemed even more inclined to punish her. It's like the old test of witchcraft-- if she drowns with a rock around her neck, then she's not guilty after all. Of course by then it will be too late. Happy Halloween, your honor.

Lindsay says she will say she worked at the morgue 24 hours more then she was suppose to. WRONG!!! The judge said 16 hours a week She is 8 hours short. Did her lawyer not explain that she had to go 16 hours PER week Not all together!!!!!!! I think there is going to be a fight about that first thing!!!!!!!

Oh, and BTW, BECAUSE Lindsay was ordered to complete 32 (yes, 32, I'm gonna say it again TMZ... 32) hours of CS, this story is COMPLETE BS.

Lindsay hasn't done "extra" hours. She hasn't even met the amount of hours she was SUPPOSED to do yet!! Even if she DOES complete the 32 hours, the most "extra" hours she can go in with is 8. But, I bet you she waits until TOMORROW (the last minute) to finish and skates in with the minimum 32 hours. Oh, and what about the day she arrived nearly an hour late? And, the day she called off? Is that going above and beyond, too?! Those types of actions are BIG PROBLEMS for her. Because, unlike this phony story, it shows she HASN'T changed and isn't "really, really serious".

TMZ--If you don't correct this, you are only feeding into the "hype" Lindsay is putting out there. And, you're misreporting information. And, it makes you look like idiots.

This was MY brilliant strategy!

MOM OF THE YEAR, remember! :)

"Sources tell us Lindsay's strategy -- courtesy of Shawn Chapman Holley -- is to show the judge she is now really, really serious about complying with the terms of her probation."

She got that from me. 'Cause, y'know, Lindays was serious the first time around. Then she was SERIOUS. That didn't work out for the best so she got really serious!

I told her that missing those 9 appointments still means she's serious, but she has to tell the judge she's really, REALLY serious to get of****ain this time.

She believe's in Mommy, and my baby would NEVER let me go broke, uh, I mean have to see her put behind bars again!

REALLY, REALLY SERIOUS! REALLY, REALLY, she is!

Let's see:
-
Get arrested for a dui or coke (or both) or robbing somebody or something else stupid.
-
Go to court and beg for mercy - spend 1 hour behind bars and then get assigned probation and community service.
-
Slack off on/blow off community service/and or commit another crime & get caught.
-
Go back to jail - only this time be "Serious" about completing your probation/community service if not given jail time.
-
Spend a few hours in jail & get re-assigned to probation & community service.
-
Blow it of****ain.
-
Back in court - only this time be REALLY serious about completing your probation/commuity service.
-
Blow it of****ian - miss 19 pre-scheduled community service appointments & get kicked out of your proggram.
-
Back in court to argue you did nothing wrong.
-
Spend a few hours in jail & then miss 1st day of morgue duty.
-
OK - getting ready for court. This time, make SURE to tell the judge that you're REALLY, REALLY serious this time! That's SURE to keep you out!
-
-
The basic fact is - the hearing is to determine if Lindsay violated her probation. Based on this 'strategy', she is prepared to admit she did so.
-
In which case she'd also better be prepared to go to jail! The judge made it CLEAR last time that Lindsay got no more excuses or lieniency - violate probation, do not pass go, do not collct $200 - GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL!
-
If the judge doens't follow through with that - her entire career is a meaningless waste.

Oh, OK. Well, if Lindsay is "really, really serious" this time - OK then.
-
I mean, I guess she was only "serious" the first time, then maybe "SERIOUS" the second time.
-
That didn't work so she stepped it up to "Really serious" the next time, and what did she get for it? That mean, mean judge assigned her to do the community service she was already supposed to be doing! Oh the HORROR!
-
So, I'm SURE that this time, since she's "Really, really serious" that should be good enough, right?
-
I guess, if it's not, she can always claim she's "REALLY, REALLY, REALLY SERIOUS" next time. [/sarcasm]
-
Stupid, spoiled drunken, coke-whore, skank; your time has come! LOCK 'ER UP!

How come all of America knows what the judge met by 16 hours per week but Lindsay and her lawyer!!! I am sure her lawyer will say it was her mistake and not to punish Lindsay for it!!! I knew what the judge met right when she said it I don't know why her lawyer didn't get it. I thought she was suppose to be smart!!!
