Lindsay Lohan
's past may come back to haunt her when she goes to trial next week for allegedly lying to cops after her car accident ... because TMZ has learned, prosecutors will attempt to introduce evidence she's done exactly the same thing twice before.

Law enforcement sources directly connected to the case tell TMZ ... prosecutors are convinced that Lindsay has an M.O. when she gets into trouble on the road -- telling cops she wasn't driving, even though she was.

Lindsay is being prosecuted for allegedly telling cops she was a passenger in the Porsche that crashed into a truck last June on Pacific Coast Highway when in fact she was the driver.

We've learned prosecutors want the jury to hear about 2 prior incidents:

0314-linday-lohan-crash-2007-x17
1. May, 2007 : Lindsay was busted in Bev Hills for driving under the influence after her Mercedes struck a curb at 5:30 AM on Sunset Blvd.  Lindsay told cops she was a passenger in the car. LIE.

2. March, 2012 : Lindsay was leaving the Sayers Club in Hollywood in her Porsche just after midnight when she allegedly struck a pedestrian and fled.  She told cops she was a passenger. LIE.

Our sources say prosecutors will attempt to introduce the 2 incidents under the law that allows evidence of "prior bad acts" that shows a pattern of misconduct.

Unfortunately Lindsey needs to be held accountable for her actions.

Lindsey doesn't have parents who could help her develop the proper character and moral compass as most due...her own parents are train wrecks who can't make adult decsions! She learned from the best...

Lindsey repeatedly elects to defend her poor decisions and actions with lies, only because it's worked previously for her...you can't snow the snowman all of your life.

It's time Lindsey's held accountable for her actions and do serious time in jail to humble her and get needed counceling...look where it got Robert Downney Jr., and he brought his career back from the dead.

Good riddance!    

FINALLY! Finally the prosecution gets the Golden Clue and has obviously had it to here with this grifting loser's criminal recidivism! It sounds like Crackie's teflon coating has been fully worn off after years of heavy abuse and these and probably other charges are going to stick from here on out. You just know Crackie is going to be getting her snort and drink on as much as possible for the next couple of day, so keep off the streets and keep an eye on your wallets, purses, and any other valuables in any city she is terrorizing. After this last crime wave, she can look forward to enjoying some quality delirium tremors and further humiliation from the comforts of a nice cold jail cell!

Did Susan/Dina finally pass out? I love how Nikki said Dina cannot figure out who she is in Merrick. In my neighborhood we all know who likes who-who doesn't like who but I guess in Dina's case it is the entire village after her with torches and pitchforks. Frankenstein is alive and not so well in Merrick.

Lindsay WILL Go To Trial! Prosecutor Will Vehemently Oppose Any Delay Tactics By Lohan’s Attorney

Posted on Mar 15, 2013 @ 4:02AM | By Jen Heger


WENN


Lindsay Lohan‘s criminal defense attorney, Mark Heller, can try all the tricks in the book in his bid to delay his client’s upcoming lying to the cops trial, but no matter what he pulls out of his hat, Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White will vehemently oppose it, and implore the judge not to grant any extension to proceedings, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“The prosecutor will absolutely object to any motion that is filed attempting to prevent the trial from beginning next Tuesday,” a source tells Radar. “Heller has had more than enough time to prepare the case for trial, and if he tries to pull a stunt at the eleventh hour in hopes of causing a delay, he is going to be in for a very rude awakening. The California courts are overloaded right now, and any delay would only cost taxpayers money.

“Lindsay can expect to get no special treatment this time around, despite what she’s been used to in the past. Judge James Dabney was crystal clear with Heller during the last hearing — telling him that he needs to get a California lawyer on board the team as his knowledge of the state’s law is well below par. That was two weeks ago, and Heller’s had more than enough time to achieve that, so as far as the judge is concerned, no more excuses. This is only a misdemeanor case, it’s not complicated and doesn’t need to be dragged out. Dabney is a no-nonsense judge, and it would have to be very unusual cir***stances for him to be willing to grant a continuance.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Heller has already filed a motion to dismiss the case, which Judge Dabney denied, in addition to a rambling and long-winded motion that a continuance needed to be granted because “Lindsay Lohan has made a commitment to herself to elevate her life and participate in activities which will advance her desire to lead a model life…

“And place this case on a slow track so that Lindsay Lohan, during the pendency of this case, can demonstrate her worthiness for compassion and mercy by using her present and future actions to set a glorious example of how a collaborative, constructive and creative case strategy formulated by the Defense counsel, the Prosecutors, and the Judicial System all working together can benefit and elevate a Defendant and Society, as outlined in my Feb. 4, 2013 letter.”

However, the New York based attorney has not yet thrown in the towel, as Lindsay’s father Michael Lohan exclusively told Radar on Thursday.

“I heard that Mark Heller has decided that he is going to finally get a California lawyer to help him, and he’s going to tell the judge this at the last minute and that will cause another delay, and then Lindsay won’t have to appear,” Michael claimed.

“Heller is just looking for a delay, and I’m not going to get involved in this mess.”

Michael went on to say that he doesn’t believe Heller is even ready for trial, and he thinks that by exposing the attorney’s alleged secret plan to cause a last minute delay, he will ultimately help his daughter Lindsay.

“All she needed was to go into treatment,” Michael said. “If she went into treatment she would have her freedom and her life back. Which obviously Heller is not concerned with. He just wants his name out there!”

Lindsay’s latest criminal trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday, March 19, and even if she’s acquitted of all charges, she could still go to jail for up to 245 days for violating probation in her past necklace theft case.

At the time of publication, Mark Heller had not responded to Radar’s request for comment

A repost...a brief

The court had enough.


The truck driver was hit and calls 911 knows it was female driver and that hit him and a male in the passanger seat, the truck driver is still on the phone with 911 with everything that's happening. The pink bag, liquor bottle, bribery, pills in the trunk.


Police get to the accident and no one was in the car (Porsche) Lohan is in the back seat of the drivers car like she's home free. 'Assistant' Gavin was driving and take the hit for her. Only Gavin already told police Lohan was driving.


Lohan didn't stop there. She tells police she wasn't driving, starts blaming the truck driver she hit that it was his fault and just wants her money and 15 minutes of fame. Big problem with that is who the hell is Lindsay Lohan. Lohan went on to trash this man.


Lohan goes on to blame the 80k rental Porsche's breaks failed. Her lies and blame just went on.

Monday. See what happens.

For a long time I was supportive of Lindsay Lohan,...especially viewing the parents and her upbringing,...or lack there of; but damn,...when you gonna learn little girl,...you're running out if time, breaks, and chances.People like myself, just everyday people,....we would 'still' be serving time,....but the shiet yo get away with,...simply astounding. I'm all for saving someone's life,....but you have proven over and over again, you don't wanna be saved,....you love your destructive lifestyle,...adding all of the lying and manipulation. A talented young woman,....but people are starting to step away and not want to hire you,....wtf ? You apparently don't get get it. Step up Lindsay, be a grownup,...face your wrongs and stop blaming everyone else,......
