Lindsay Lohan

COPS PLEA DEAL

AVOIDS JAIL

Lindsay Lohan just copped an 11th hour plea deal and will spend 90 days in lockdown rehab ... the good news for her ... she's dodged the jail bullet.

After a lot of haggling in chambers with offers and counteroffers, Lindsay pled no contest to the crimes of reckless driving and lying to cops.  In addition to rehab, Lindsay will perform 30 days of community labor and undergo psychotherapy for 18 months -- she'll get credit for shrink time already completed.

FYI -- there's a mandatory 5 days in jail for reckless driving, but it's going to be folded into the lockdown rehab so she won't be behind bars even for a day.  Lindsay will be able to do her rehab in NYC.  She must stay clear of drugs and drug users.  She must submit to drug testing.

She's also admitted to a probation violation in the jewelry heist case, she was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but that sentence was STAYED and she won't do time if she continues to obey all laws.

During the hearing, Lindsay's attorney Mark Heller kept jumping up to talk -- and Lindsay ran out of patience ... telling him, "Don't say anything else." Heller ignored her and got up to talk again, and Lindsay said, "Oh my god, I'm going to kill you." Priceless.

Lindsay showed up 48 minutes late after missing 2 commercial flights from NYC to L.A.   She took a private jet and landed a little too late. 

The judge also offered a suggestion, "Don't drive."

On her way in, someone threw glitter at Lindsay. 

Lindsay Lohan and Mariah Carey -- avoid glitter at all costs.

She looks sedated or stones, the way she was talking to the Lawyer was very disrespectful but we know that she also has no respect for the law of the legal systems since she doesn't feel like she needs to come to court on time. Lets like this Lawyer is also Lindsay bit&%.

Lets see how long she stays in rehab I bet she doesn't go the 90 days

Wait for it, Lindsay applies to the courts to have this deal overturn since her lawyer was a tool and she didn't feel she got a fair trial. Watch and see she will once again get off.

If this was the average person, jail time would be served.
Why should she get special treatment?

Why does she keep getting off? If she were an everyday Joe like us, she would have been in jail ages ago.

Cutting Lindsey Lohan slack continually puts her life in jepardy becuase she never really accepts the seriousness of her actions which could cause her to change for the good.....we have to wait until she dies and then say we should have done better....shame on all those who do not force her to accept reality.

Wow, once again we learn the hard lesson that if you are rich and famous you can get away with murder. Once again we get slapped in the face with the fact that this is the land of inequality.

Lindsay used to be very pretty and is a good actress. She messed up her head, reputation and face with all that botox or whatever she does. She is so lucky to have avoided jail, but 90 days is way not enough. I still don't think she gets it and will again mess up. And, the judge should order mother to stay away from her. She is not a mother, and has been living off of her fame.

When are they going to stop slapping Lindsay on her hands and sending her to the corner. It's completely clear at this point she has no interest in the law and endangering other people unless it is the moment she is before the judge. Thats if she shows. She's still getting away with her crap. It's jail time PERIOD. NO MORE home jail and chances. Is it the Judges NOT LEARNING their lessons at this point? It's like arresting someone and you find out it's their 8th DUI and you wonder " How did this person slip through the system so many times". I guess those DUI's only count when an innocent persons life is taken or destroyed by these Judges who have the power but do nothing with repeat offenders except the same obvious things that didn't work the first eight times. I think she might have a whole new persepective after 18 months behind bars NO SPECIAL TREATMENT. Oh by the way have any of you heard anything about Ms. Paris Hilton and the law these days? I sure haven't since she was in the slammer. :)

ouch    

LOCKDOWN REHAB? Ouch that is going to hurt her. At least she could get booze and drugs in jail. This is going to be a real punishment. Ask any addict.

FYI, If you want to become a criminal in California, make sure you become famous first...
