Do YOU think Lindsay belongs back behind bars? She still swears she’s innocent!
Now here’s a familiar scene: Lindsay Lohan will stand before Judge Keith Schwartz at 11:30 a.m. ET on Feb. 23, and it sounds like all potential pleas will result in jail time — it’s just a matter of how much. Sources tell TMZ that Judge Schwartz will likely suggest jail time for violating the terms of Lindsay’s probation plus an additional three years felony probation for allegedly stealing the $2,500 necklace.
Aaaand here’s the kicker: The site also reports that if Lindsay, 24, gets in any trouble during that three-year probationary period, she’ll be shipped off to state prison!
Prosecutor Dannette Meyers has reportedly informed Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley that any plea bargain will include “significant jail time.”
Connecticut-based lawyer Susan Filan, however, doesn’t believe that jail time is necessarily inevitable. “I think Judge Keith Schwartz will give Shawn Chapman Holley and the prosecutor a chance to make a plea deal on behalf of Lindsay,” Filan tells HollywoodLife.com. “But he’s going to most likely give Lindsay and the lawyers a stern warning that if they don’t settle the case soon, he will set a hearing. And Lindsay does not want a hearing for her violation of probation because it will result in jail time.”
If Lindsay doesn’t accept a plea, TMZ reports, Judge Schwartz will make a date for a preliminary hearing.
