You’re One Lucky Lady, Lindsay — Lawyers Say You’ll Walk Away From Breaking The Law With A Slap On The Wrist!

FOUR lawyers tell HollywoodLife.com that although Lindsay very nearly went to jail for failing to show at a mandatory court appointment, her actions won’t have any consequences — and that’s BS!

Ah, the power of celebrity! Lindsay Lohan was very nearly arrested and extradited from France after missing her mandatory court appointment in LA May 20, but lawyers tell us that nothing will happen to her now that she’s posted bail! Totally unfair, and totally ridiculous.

“When she returns [to the USA], since she has already posted bail, nothing will happen to her. She will report to court on Monday [May 24], where the judge will most likely order her to wear a SCRAM bracelet and have a weekly urine analysis test to look for drugs and/or alcohol,” Los Angeles-based lawyer Robert Bernstein tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

Agrees LA-based attorney Sean Tabibian, “The judge will most likely give Lindsay another chance. The judge has the option of throwing her in jail for up to six months, but the likelihood of that happening is very slim.”

The judge WILL want to make sure that the 23-year-old actress is on the straight and narrow after claiming she lost her passport and was unable to make her court appearance, which stemmed from a 2007 DUI charge. “The judge is going to probably set up a future court date to see all of Lindsay’s progress. She’ll have to complete all her required traffic classes and make sure everything is done in an orderly fashion,” LA-based attorney Matthew J. Ruff tells us, adding, “She’ll probably be issued some sort of SCRAM device so they can make sure Lindsay is alcohol and drug-free.”

The hard-partying starlet managed to avoid arrest by paying ten percent of her $100,000 bail and FINALLY hopping on a flight back to LA this morning, May 21. She was not arrested in Europe — though she could have been — because of her celebrity status, says LA-based lawyer Jonathan Kellman.

“The more celebrity you have is almost always to your favor. It allows extra reasonable doubt,” Kellman says. “Jail time probably won’t be given. She’ll be ordered to do X, Y and Z, and this will probably be her last shot. Judges don’t want to be ridiculed and be the ones who put a celebrity in jail. However, if she misses Monday’s court appearance, she’ll almost be guaranteed jail time.”

He adds, “She will probably get the SCRAM device, which she will have to pay for. But she’ll probably be considered a fashion icon and everyone will want one.”

Not me! Lying, breaking the law and SCRAM bracelets sound like a REALLY good time (NOT). I think I’ll just stick with boring old honesty and keeping myself OUT of jail, thanks — as should you, Lindsay. PS — as fashionable as you might make SCRAM bracelets, I still prefer diamonds any day.
