Lindsay Lohan

Facing 8 Months

In Jail

EXCLUSIVE

1022_linday_lohan_tmz_3
Lindsay Lohan is exactly one day away from having her probation revoked ... and the end game could be 245 days in the slammer ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources connected with her most recent case tell TMZ ... when Lindsay is arraigned Wednesday for allegedly lying to cops and reckless driving in connection with her car accident last June ... the judge will revoke her probation in the jewelry heist case and set a date for a hearing to formally decide if Lindsay violated the terms of her probation by breaking the law again.

We're told the hearing will be conducted at the same time Lindsay stands trial on the criminal charges.  And get this -- even if Lindsay is found not guilty in the criminal case, the judge can still rule she violated her probation because the standard of proving a probation violation is significantly lower than proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

The stakes for Lindsay are high -- up to 8 months in jail, and that doesn't include jail time if she's convicted in the car accident case.

Sources tell us ... the L.A. City Attorney is "out for blood" and they will file papers Wednesday asking that Lindsay's probation be revoked.  Fact is ... the judge does it on her own ... the prosecutors don't even have to ask for it, but their voice will certainly be heard.

8 months is not enough, especially if the Star Struck Douche Sheriff lets her out after 2 days

Why even report on this. NOTHING will happen to her, sadly. The California legal system is a joke when it comes to "celebrities".. even D-list ones like Lindsay. She'll get a slap on the wrist, if that.

I'm convinced this junkie thief could walk into a police department and shoot a couple of cops and end up getting community service.

Yeah right. She will get off again. And if she does do time, it would be maybe 2 hrs or even 30 minutes. And why even set a date. If it was anyone else, they would have been taken into custody at the time of every incident. This is just a joke.

I have to agree that letting Lindsay hang for publicity was a bad move for that band. I had heard of them once or twice before, I had no opinion of them. Now my opinion is very low. They just seem scuzzy.

Wait !!! Just a thought....Whos to say the new Judge likes Shawn and is willing to cut deals with her???

Whouldn't be a hoot if this new Judge hates Lying Linday and Shawn.

Bwahhahahahha! Can't wait to see how this plays out.

Oh plus don't forget, the L.A. City Attorney and prosecutors are asking the Judge for no early release..

Fingers crossed everyone !!
