Lindsay Lohan

FACES MONTHS

IN JAIL

3/18/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0315_lindsay_lohan_jail_article_gettyProsecutors will ask the judge in her criminal trial to throw the book at Lindsay Lohan and give her 240 days in jail if she's convicted of lying to cops in her June car accident case ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the case tell TMZ ... the L.A. City Attorney will be in court, lying in wait in the event Lindsay is convicted.  We're told if the jury finds her guilty, L.A. prosecutors will ask the judge to jail her ... because she would have squarely violated her probation in the jewelry heist case by breaking the law.

We're told L.A. prosecutors will ask for the maximum -- 240 days in jail.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... if the judge sentences Lindsay to the max, based on the current formula and the fact that she's a repeat probation violator, Lindsay would actually serve between 60 and 90 days.

We're told the Santa Monica City Attorney -- which is prosecuting the main lying-to-cops case -- will not ask for additional jail time if Lindsay gets nailed with the max.

But here's the problem.  If Lindsay is convicted, she'd be placed on probation for ANOTHER 2 years, meaning if she violates any law, she could be hauled into court again, and possibly serve more jail time.

Everytime I read about Lindsay Lohan and her legal troubles- it makes me forget my small problems and reminds me of how much better my life is- compared to her life.

@9 I completely agree. I think she's in panic mode because the attorney switcheroo stall trick didn't work.

Who knows, maybe Lohan speed dialed court and left a message she won't be able to make court this morning still stuck in NY. Yeah right. But your honor it's the airlines fault.

That is just cruel treatment-60...-90 days in jail. She will just be getting all comfy and used to having showers, food and a bed. What will she do? FREE LINDSAY.

I'da been there with a personal , heartfelt letter to the judge asking if I could speak to him directly in terms of my sentence. I'da been there at every hearing and plead to a no contest and asked for the judges mercy...She is an idiot

Can they find a place in Los Angeles that doesn't have a jail that is over crowded? We all know she is banking on getting out in 1 hour because of over crowding.

Tomorrow is going to be nothing compared to what will happen to Lindsay come April 15 when she will have close to 1 million or more dollars she will have to pay the federal government and the state of California.

The last story said she thought the plane was unsafe-any reports of a plane crash or forced landing?Her deplaning story was on ABC early news and the anchor seemed to be smirking. Gotta love it.
