Past Lies Against Her

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.

As much as I hate to admit it, Lindsay is probably smart NOT to take the plea deal. If she did, she would be REQUIRED to do 90 days locked-down in a rehab facility. If she refuses it, is found guilty and sentenced to a few months in jail, she would most likely be released in less than a week due to overcrowding. LA's judiciary system is a joke, and obviously has no intention of actually PUNISHING her because it is "inconvenient" to house a "celebrity", and Lindsay KNOWS it! (using the words "celebrity" and "Lindsay" in the same sentence makes me want to puke!) I just hope that when she finally DOES cause an accident and seriously injures or kills someone, that the victim is one of the judges or jailers that keep turning her loose on society, or one of THEIR family members!

Beyoch has destroyed a Mercedes and a Porsche (at minimum). She should be put down in a porn snuff film.

The dramz continues for the troubled starlet as she and defense attorney, Mark Heller prep for a legal battle. But Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White isn't going to make things easy for LiLo and will strongly urge the trial's Judge James Dabney to grant no more extensions now that plea bargains are out of the question.

A source revealed:
“The prosecutor will absolutely object to any motion that is filed attempting to prevent the trial from beginning next Tuesday… 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.”

Basically, there will be “no special treatment” for Lindsay this time around. In fact, Judge Dabney has already denied Heller’s motion to dismiss the case as well as his motion of continuance.

This trial, set for Tuesday, March 19th, shouldn’t be Lindsay’s only concern. She could still suffer severe consequences for her other legal woes.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

If the DA's are interested in a 'speedy trial', they best mention only these two incidents. If they were to list every Lohan LIE, the trial would be TRIPLE the length of OJ's.

Maybe they will, but I'm sure Lindsay will just get another slap on the wrist, if that...

Not only is Sheriff Lee Baca up for reelection but so is the LA City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. It's a runoff election in May and a tight race. Just saying.

Lohan pulled the I don't feel like going to court shyt on Heller right off the bat. Too busy partying. She's wasted off her ass. Oh, wait I'll get my mystery Dr. to say I can't fly. Photos of her partying smoking shopping and yet she's so sick. Yeah right.


Amazing what a warrant for arrest will do. Lohan gets the last flight out of JFK to LAX, turned down by hotels but is in court. Judge Sautner said Ms. Lohan, nice to see you're feeling better.


Lohan pulled her same shyt on Shawn Holley. She's too wasted to get to court. Again all of this is nothing new. All of Lohans bullshyt is nothing new. Court knows it.
