Lindsay Lohan

Stupidly Pulls Plug

On Rehab Plea Deal

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

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.

Jail, for the full sentence, but not general population. She'll be treated like a star in the general population. Solitary as a high profile prison, same as last time, but full sentence.

That headline is a little misleading.

No TMZ, YOU are stupid for posting such garbage. Why would the CA offer 6 months lockdown in rehab when this case has nothing to do with alcohol or drugs? it has to do with being in the emergency room and possible lying to the police.

You asked yesterday would Shawn be in court? and now you say she will be. TMZ have manipulated this whole story, they got it wrong and are now digging to get out. I will believe whatever Shawn will say NOT Tmz.

I've got a feeling that today will be a "just in the nick of time" episode.

I said yesterday and I'll say it again, I don't think Lindsay will to be in court today. I remember Shawn saying she didn't need to be in court on the 15th.

Seriously TMZ why would the CA offer rehab when this has nothing to do with alcohol or drugs, the charges are misdemeanours and Shawn said already she doesn't believe this is a probation violation so the rehab offer is absolute garbage. Have TMZ been talking to douche daddy Michael Lohan again? I'd say yes, that stupid guy knows nothing.

Don't you just love how Blowjangles comes on this site, and the only thing he ever posts is how wrong TMZ's sources are, the stories are fabricated, and the commenters are gullible fools.

Yet everday, he's on here commenting again. Hey Blowjangles, if everything about this site was as wrong as you say it is, your fat ass wouldn't be on here.

Oh wait, let me guess, you're on here to "try to straighten us out", right? Isn't that the usual reasoning of a troll?

As with everything she done. *Sigh*. And why'd she fire Shawn? She seemed like a good attorney. Maybe, bc Lindsay found out that she was trying to make her do something, she didn't want to? Lindsay thinks everyone is out to get her, when they're just trying to help her. People need to stop being so easy on here. Of all the stuff she's done, she's got minor punishments. People can say she gets the same treatment as everyone else, but I think it's much more than that.

I wonder what spin TMZ will put on this today AFTER the court hearing? will they backtrack or add more lies to backup their story? its what they usually do because TMZ will NEVER admit they were wrong.

Lindsay says she does not have a problem with drugs and alcohol. Why rehab for criminal offenses? Oh yeah, rehab for criminal offenses is called JAIL.

Now I get it.................
