After skipping her court date, our legal experts say that Lindsay will be returning to prison, and she is the ‘poster child’ for a maximum sentence. Read on for the inside scoop.
On Dec. 12, Lindsay Lohan skipped her court date to hang out with her new boy toy, Max George, of British boy band, The Wanted. Once again, Lindsay has proved she is not good at making decisions, especially when it comes to her legal situations, and our legal expert Raoul Felder says that Lindsay has acted very foolishly by not showing up at court. According to Raoul, Lindsay’s negligence could result in her getting a longer sentence. Things are not looking good for you, LiLo!
When Lindsay failed to appear at court, her probation for her previous jewelry theft was immediately revoked. Raoul believes that Lindsay has shot herself in the foot by not appearing for her court date. Her next court date has now been set for Jan. 15.
“This does not bode well. She has taken a course in stupidity,” says Raoul. “They will issue an order for her arrest next. The next time, the court order will be mandatory”.
Lindsay is also set to appear in court in New York on Jan. 7 for allegedly assaulting a woman in a New York nightclub. Raoul does not think that will set her back however: “That is minor. I’d say she will plead guilty, and she’ll just have to pay a fine or something.”
However, Lindsay’s current situation is perilous, and Raoul believes that her blatant disregard for the law could have a very negative effect on her trial and her sentencing.
“Her probation has been revoked, so she is definitely going to jail. She thinks the law doesn’t apply to her. I would be very surprised if she is not issued jail time. None of her crimes are major, but she has a pattern of not abiding by the law. The judge will take this into account for sentencing, and it will impact on her negatively. She may be given a longer sentence because of it”.
As for how long Lindsay will go to jail for? Raoul says: “It’s hard to speculate, but it could be over a year. She is the poster child for maximum punishment.”
However, LA attorney Mychal Wilson says Lindsay may not serve her full sentence:
“In light of Lindsay being a celebrity target, her past sentencing history, California prison overcrowding, and the state’s new prison realignment law for “low-level” offenses, I would be shocked if Lindsay was sentenced to serve out the entire 245 days in jail. However, Commissioner Jane Godfrey should put an end to this train wreck waiting to happen so Lindsay may face at a minimum stricter probation terms coupled with additional counseling.”
Mychal continues: “Moreover, Lindsay’s big picture is becoming one of a menace to society. Her irresponsible actions are putting citizens lives at risk, disobeying our legal system and wasting taxpayers dollars. Simply, Lindsay needs to rehabilitate her deviant behavior so our lives and the rest of her nine lives are not at risk.”
