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.

Lohan has had weeks of knowing full well she had to be in L.A. court this morning.


I figured Lohan would pull something at the last minute like she's done before. Threatened with an arrest warrant, Lohan amazingly gets the last flight out of JFK to LAX.


Knowing this date was coming up Lohan if not already in L.A. would probally pull the last minute flight just like a few weeks ago.


Lohan is blaming an airline now for her not being in court this morning.


All of NYC had the flu. Lohan was to sick to fly (photos of her partying shopping smoking) took a threat of an arrest warrant. She got to court on time.


Judge Sautner..Ms. Lohan, glad to see you're feeling better. I'm laughing my ass off. Goes on, Mark Heller is now Lohans attorney of record and Shawn Holley is done with Lohan.


Mark Heller had until March 1st, to have any motions, arguments to the court. Lohan did not have to be in court for that. But Lohan knew back in Febuary she had to be in court on March 18th.


Lohan partying not making it to court. Warrant.

COS TO FLY LINDSAY TO LA! NOW!

In a major coup, the Church of Scientology has acquired the soul and body of Lindsay Dee Lohan and is flying both to LA as we speak; the deal was done with the Devil himself! Lucifer said “That little crakho has become waaay toooo much trouble and is giving religion a bad name, the Scientologists got her for a song and a dance. I should have dumped her a$$ years ago when she still had value, now? Nada!”

Tom Cruise, spokesperson for the COS said “This is a bridge deal; we are only keeping her until we can sell her to a major Porn Studio. Around here we can work Miracles! We just can’t work with Lindsay. We did her inventory and she is such a liar it is unmeasurable, there is no base line. She is such an idiot she cannot learn; whatever she learned in home school is wrong and she doesn’t learn! She is fvcking hopeless!”

DUIna said “WTF? Whatever… We have a Super Model and a Pro Surfer, eh?”

Lindsay said “I am going to LA, but not to court. I will be partying at the CM! Bring BLO and Vodka!”

If If If ... TMZ, what crap, this is all "IF" this and "IF" that ... fact is, if any one of your "IFS" fail, then this whole article is invalid. She'll be treated no different to anyone else. And if the jails are full, she'll get out in no time, just like anyone else. If she's not looking worried, it's because she doesn't need to be. If you're exaggerating the fact that she needs to be worried, it's because THAT'S HOW YOU SELL YOURSELF. Truth isn't your strong suit TMZ, never has been, never will be, but the lies will always sell and you'll make money regardless (and why not?).

What is the problem? If she's convicted and placed on probation for another two years, the only thing she has to do is simply stay out of trouble.
Like I wrote some time ago, I hope that whatever the outcome of this trial, it's just the best for Lindsay Lohan.

I think there's an out for Lindsay and her travel disaster. All she has to do is approve a California lawyer to assist Hilarious Heller, which she could do by phone, and then she doesn't have to come to court. The only reason she was required to be in court today was to tell the judge she knew Heller was a nitwit and she loved him anyway, or whatever. There's a lawyer selected by her father and by Heller, same lawyer, who is coming to court every day to offer his assistance if needed. She has refused to take him. Still a rebellious teen.

Can't wait to see Drama Queen Heller's theatrics in court tomorrow as he explains to the judge why Lindsay isn't there.

And didn't the judge tell Heller if Lindsay was not there to sign off on keeping him as counsel, that he would be dismissed and Lindsay would have to appear with NO counsel?

maybe I heard that wrong.

I have feeling that the judge will continue the case to 10:30 or after lunch to allow Snortcake to be on the next flight in and get to court.
