Judge Elden Fox could put Lindsay Lohan in custody without bail for up to 30 days before her probation violation hearing…and this time she won’t be so lucky and get out early for good behavior!
Lindsay Lohan only had to do 13 of her 90 day jail sentence this summer thanks to overcrowding at the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, Calif. — but now that she’s failed not one, but TWO drug tests, LA-based criminal attorney Steve Cron says there’s zero chance she’s going to get off so easily again!
In fact, when the 24-year-old actress shows up to her court hearing tomorrow morning, Cron predicts that Judge Elden Fox will hold her in custody without bail while deciding when her probation hearing will be…and she could be held for up to 30 days before her hearing even begins!
“If he thinks she’s violating her probation (which she is), one option would be that she be held in custody before her hearing. It’s not a sentencing, but it’s a way that Judge Fox could use to make sure she stays in longer,” Cron says.
He adds, “[Fox] could put her in custody with no bail. She remains in custody and then he could say, ‘Have you learned your lesson?’ Or he can just say, ‘You’re going into custody and I’m sentencing you for 30 days,’ but he knows she’ll only do four or five because of overcrowding.”
Luckily for Lindsay, Cron doesn’t think Judge Fox will actually put off her sentencing for 30 days because the case is so cut and dried.
“He could draw out the hearing, but I can’t imagine they need a really long time to prepare for this,” he says. “I’d be surprised if he puts it over for a really long time. I can imagine he’ll hold her for a week or two.”
Unfortunately for Lindsay, there’s very little doubt she’ll end up behind bars again. “My prediction is she’ll definitely do jail time, either before the sentencing, after the hearing or both,” Cron says.
Sorry Lindsay, but you made your bed and now you’re going to sleep in it –- or should we say jail cell cot?
How long do YOU think Lindsay deserves to be in jail?
