Lindsay Lohan

Take Your Plea Deal ...

AND SHOVE IT

1/20/2013 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0118_linday_lohan_01Lindsay Lohan doesn't care that the prosecutor in her car crash case is willing to let her skate without spending a day in jail ... because she won't plea bargain a case in which she says she's innocent.

TMZ broke the story ... attorney Shawn Holley was on her way to court Monday to negotiate a deal in Lindsay's lying-to-cops car crash case when she got her walking papers.  Law enforcement sources tell us ... the prosecutor was willing to let Lindsay plead no contest and agree to six months of lockdown rehab -- NO JAIL.

Presumably, the offer is still on the table but we're told Lindsay could not be less interested. She doesn't think she did anything wrong and will not plead to a crime she says she didn't commit.

FYI -- our law enforcement sources tell us ... prosecutors have her dead to rights, because she told cops she was a passenger in the Porsche when there's overwhelming evidence she was the driver.

So get this ... if the case goes to trial and Lindsay is found guilty, she faces 19 months in jail. On top of that, the lying-to-cops case has triggered a probation violation in her jewelry heist case and she could get ANOTHER 245 days for that.

It's hard to keep track.

It's 74 and sunny today at the beach. California is a beautiful place with amazing weather. The problem is that nearly everything else here is screwed up. The State is essentially bankrupt. The LA Superior Court system has had its budget slashed. The clerks have taken the hit more than any other employee category--they are sooooo overworked. PLEASE DON'T CALL A JUDICIAL OFFICER'S CLERK. The call has no impact and it just takes time away from their huge workload.

Lohan is stalling. She is pulling every legal loophole she can. Right down to using her own lawyer to do it.

I have always said screw jail that's nothing but a joke. Pull Lohans passport. Sautner did. That's the only reason Lohan complied to her probation. She needed the use of her passport.

Lohan figured out that she got more attention by not complying to her probation and community service court orders. Her concrete carpet court walk was I got away with it again.


Lohan by the skin of legal teeth (thank you Shawn Holley) complied to court orders. Got the use of her passport back.


Look what Lohan has pulled since she left Sautners courtroom in less than 9 months.

Lohan more than ever needs the use of her passport. Without her passport she can't 'escort' sorry 'work' overseas.

She's tried to hold out for trial before in the necklace theft case, until someone got through her hard little noggin that it was such an open and shut case, a jury of real people would come back with a guilty verdict in a few minutes. The only ones saying otherwise were diehard Lohanites. I remember the judge (the guy before Sautner) looking astonished and actually giving her more time to think about it and asking questions to make sure she understood everything, it was so preposterous. Doubt that she can get Gavin, the truck driver, the Lifetime people following her, etc to perjure themselves in this case. Also confusion after the accident won't wash. Didn't she claim she wasn't driving in a much later interview? A truly temporarily confused person would have contacted the police later to revise their statement.

Does anyone know if the sheriff lets grand theft prisoners go as readily as he lets loose the DUI crowd? She stole a $2500 necklace and that's connected with the trouble she's in, it wouldn't be such a big deal if she weren't on probation for the theft. And likewise the revolving door for VoP may be different for drunk drivers vs convicted thieves.

@maddie...my point was that Lohan needed the use of her passport. Doesn't matter when she decided to use it. She could and still can. Doesn't matter who she get's to pay for her.

I am so tired of this. If she was a "normal" citizen then she'd still be in jail. It's time for someone to show her what happens when you don't follow the law. I'm tired of these celebs who think they are above the law. She deserves all the jail time and no plea margins.

She's refusing a plea deal for 6 months lockdown rehab in favor of possibly going to jail for over a year, well, DUH! REALLY! Let's see, she'd be in rehab for the FULL six months or in jail for less than a month due to overcrowding. Big shocker there! Los Angeles prosecutors GET A CLUE!

If she was a normal citizen, she would get off scott free. I go to criminal court everyday full time, and people literally get away with real murder. She is a junky-wild-women. She should be in jail, but from he'd perspective she doesn't care about the court system. She wants to do her time, no legal hang-ups. She is a twisted person in a bad situation. She needs real help, before she is an Anna Nicole. If the poor girl dies then everyone will act sad.
