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.

New thought, new trick in Lohan's bag of tricks?
How about a fake suicide attempt this morning?
Good for some time?

It's absolutely ludacris that they would give this habitual probation violater, more probation. Probation is a privilege on lieu of jail, given to those who stay out of trouble. She has already demonstrated that she cannot stay out of trouble, she should never receive probation again.

Yeah, cause this is going to go any different from EVERY OTHER TIME SHE'S BEEN FACING JAIL TIME. She'll get yet another slap on the wrist. And she'll head right for the nearest party and get hammered. and the same cycle will keep repeating itself. Until she finally does the world a favor and drops dead from an overdose. And it will happen. You may not like it. But you know I'm right.

The hounds of Hell-er are bellowing,
The time is drawing near.
Lindsay is still not mellowing,
She'll lose this time, poor dear.
It's never about her stealing,
Or doing drugs these days.
It's all about how to stay out of jail,
And how she never pays.
We've had it with LA Justice,
A get her done stance is born.
We want to see great courtroom drama,
Throw the book at her, pass the popcorn.

This girl's a loser, a three time loser. She should be washing police cars and mowing lawns. Hell I think she'll be able to order take out sushi when she's on the inside.

@Regina...no eagle landing. No private jet. Just looking like another Lohan too wasted to get to court no show. Andy is of the same opinion.
