Lindsay Lohan

Options: House Arrest

Or Risk JAIL!

EXCLUSIVE

0308-lindsay-lohan-make-a-dealLindsay Lohan has been cut yet another break in the criminal justice system -- prosecutors are offering house arrest to end her lying-to-cops and probation violation cases, but we're told she's NOT biting.

Multiple sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney and the L.A. City Attorney have both softened their position from lockdown rehab to 90-DAY HOUSE ARREST. 

In fact, we're told Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller, is telling prosecutors Lindsay will accept a certain amount of house arrest. Right now Heller and the prosecutors are squabbling over how much house arrest. But here's the problem ... sources connected with Lindsay are telling us LiLo is adamant -- she will not accept ANY punishment.

Bottom line -- sources connected with the case tell us there's a 75% chance the case will go to trial on March 18th. If Lindsay rolls the dice and is convicted, she faces months of ACTUAL jail time.

Lindsay needs to go for door #1.

G Bear made a point. That maybe it's too late now for her to take a plea, they have to get a jury of her peers.

Can Heller fire his client? Is there anyway he can get out of representing her or is it too late? Is there anyway these two can drag this out any longer or are we finally seeing the final curtain call?

I don't see her taking a plea deal because she wants the attention a concrete walk and trial will bring her. She will be in the news again after all.

Nevertheless, she doesn't have an ounce of common sense in her selfish body.

I think it is too late for solomon grundy Lohan to make a plea deal..During the Jewelery case Holley had a dead line to plea it out..and that was a few weeks before it went to trial...with one week the prosecution has put way too much time lineing up its case..the truck driver has to take off work, gavin might have already got his hotel and flight ticket, the Jury is preparing,and the paperwork is being completed..(cost a bundle) just because it starts monday doesnt mean all the ducks in a row have to be lined up that day..they have to be done and be prepared no later then Wed..

just my opinion but they arnt backing down..and they are ready..Heller and lohan not so much..I see a contempt of court coming soon

Good Morning guys,


@firefly...don't think so he's her attorney of record and too late. Hell, Holley was only alowed to dump Lohan because she fired her. Holley tried to before but the judge wouldn't allow it. Too far into the case.


I tried to find out if she has a plea deadline couldn't find anything.

Thats why NO IT ALL NIC-HOLE is saying "Go to trial Lindsay" Because that Oxygen Thief Knows its too late..anyone with Common sense Knows Lielo is going to lose..I just hope heller sues her for Non Payment and she has to do the max...then when she is free she still has the NY court system to deal with..more probation

Maddy and I think that our fellow Angelenos won't be able to get past Heller's accent to listen to what he is saying.

@Hannah...that seems to be the debate. Don't know. If there none Lohan will use it till the end.


Haven't heard anything about Heller having any Cali help. The good news is that Lohan has to sign a waiver knowing Heller is compentent for the job.


This way Lohan can't scream inadequate councel, can't appeal which I believe was her intent from the beginning only it backfired on her ass.

this is Not a Murder trial.. so the Jury will not feel the Guilt on a wrong decision..
it will be the evidence before them..and the testemony of all the witnesses..
all they have to see is half the evidence to know..just the police statement and gavin on the stand..that and trying to defraud an insurance company...over welming against her..the Jewelry Case would have been easier to beat

pattycakes not to be confused with pattycake    

All her money goes to celebrity lifestyle and drug dealers.The state of California has spent a lot on trials.She seems to cost everybody money. Even the supposed illuminati that supposedly are responsible for getting her sweet deals have to be sick of her. Too much toxicity, drama and chaos. She's spent.
