Lindsay Lohan

Stupidly Pulls Plug

On Rehab Plea Deal

1/15/2013 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0114_lindsay_lohan_2_gettyLindsay Lohan COULD have avoided almost certain jail time by accepting a plea deal for lockdown rehab -- that is, if she didn't fire her lawyer who was literally on the way to the courthouse to make it happen.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney -- who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway -- was willing to keep Lindsay out of jail, PROVIDED she agree to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months.

Sources say ... Shawn Holley -- the lawyer who has kept Lindsay out of jail -- was on her way to court Monday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to hash out the deal. What's more, Lindsay also faces jail time for a probation violation in the jewelry heist case because she allegedly lied to cops after the crash. We're told the judge could have agreed to end both cases if Lindsay checked into rehab.

But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay signed her walking papers and hired a New York lawyer who was suspended in the '90s from practicing law for 5 years.

Lindsay now says she wants Shawn back. The question -- does Shawn have the stomach for another helping of Lindsay? 

There's a hearing scheduled for 8:30 AM PT today. Shawn will probably show up because she's still counsel of record. If she stays on the case, prosecutors could present the deal to her, but Lindsay is making it all very difficult.

Why do we always her "Lindsay is being difficult"? Because she's narcissistic s***bag who could care less on anything, that's why. Acts like a 4 year old. Give her a timeout for crying out loud.

So she goes to a ladies prison:
1. No taxes.
2. No responsibilities.
3. Free everything.
4. Shower rapes.
So what's the downside for her then?!?!

Completely unfair, as usual. She wasn't under the influence of anything during the June car accident for which she is due in court today, therefore rehab shouldn't come into play at all. But as always, it's Lindsay's world and we just live in it.

Frankly, I don't think she can handle being in a lockdown rehab either. Eventually she'll cause a commotion in there.

Think about this. OK, say this rehab thing goes down. She's going to hate it and when she gets out, if she's spotted as to so much as a drop of booze the public will be on her like files on a Lohan. But she hates jail too.

I've never been to rehab, but I do know people that have been and it's serious for them. If she went (and mind you, she would have to agree to it, which I'm sure she would) she better behave in there because it is life or death for others who are taking rehab seriously. I don't even think you are allowed caffine of any sort (candy bars RED BULL) as it's a stimulant too.

Throw "Freckles the Ho" in jail already, she can use her freckles to countdown how many days till release, that should keep her Skanky Freckled butt busy until the middle of 2016.

There is NO WAY Blohan will agree to 6-months of "lock-down" rehab. Her addiction is going out at night to nightclubs. That would be as bad as jail for her. She is going to screw this up and get locked up for once.
FINALLY.

Rehab is a joke and doesn't work. She should take 6 months in jail instead.

She could use a year or more in any kind of lockdown. And then maybe take some acting lessons. I'm not anti-Lindsay, but she brings all these problems on herself, and she's very lazy about her craft. A reality check would do her good.

I'm all for a 6 month lock down rehab. That's more time than she will do if she goes back to jail.
