Lindsay Lohan

Legal Showdown

Over Jail Time

12/13/2012 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1212-lindsay-lohan-tmzThere are now 2 agencies prosecuting Lindsay Lohan at the same time, and sources connected with the cases tell TMZ they are DIVIDED over whether Lindsay should be sent to the pokey.

Chief Deputy Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops last June after her car crash on Pacific Coast Highway. Lindsay -- who's been charged with 3 crimes in connection with the accident -- could face 19 months in jail if convicted on all counts. But sources connected with the case tell us ... White would be satisfied with COMMUNITY SERVICE because the crimes aren't that big a deal.

But here's the rub. The L.A. City Attorney wants to throw the book at Lindsay for allegedly violating her probation in the jewelry heist case. She could get 245 days in the slammer for the probation violation. Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... L.A. prosecutors will ask Commissioner Jane Godfrey to sentence Lindsay to AT LEAST 200 days behind bars.

Although, as we first reported, the Commish believes in rehabilitation whenever possible, she is not against sentencing criminals to time behind bars. So the stage is now set for a showdown.

Your move Shawn Holley.

How does the NY charge, if there is one, fit in with the VOP? They will know by court time, whether there will be charges filed, and it could be as serious as assault. Wouldn't that be another VOP. It probably can't be handled on the 15th as it's a separate charge. But I wonder if it's taken into consideration at all in that sentencing. Then, would there be an extended sentence on top of whatever happens on the 15th, based on the new charge?

Why even keep covering this? NOTHING is going to come of it. She'll get a slap on the wrist, as usual. The Southern California legal system is a f***ing joke when it comes to celebrities.. even D-list has-been celebrities like Lindsay.
This thieving lying junkie could walk into a police station and shoot a few people and then do a few lines of coke off their bodies and she'd probably get a month or so of community service, if that.

".. could face 19 months in jail.." "She could get 245 days in the slammer...."
I don't think any of this is going to happen. Why not? "......sources connected with the cases tell TMZ they are DIVIDED over whether Lindsay should be sent to the pokey."
Notice the word "divided". Imagine a child doing something wrong and dad wants to punish, but mom doesn't want to. What happens?
Then, even more important, there is the words ".sources connected.....tell TMZ" I've read those words so many times in relation to Lindsay and hardly anything came out. Maybe TMZ should stop "predicting" anything about Lindsay?

Rather than speculating about what MAY happen in 8 stories a day, perhaps TMZ could be persuaded to wait until there is some outcome and report what ACTUALLY happens. Stop giving this delusional addict the publicity she craves.
