Lindsay Lohan lied to cops about driving drunk and – surprise! – they’re sort of trying to hold her responsible for it. Kind of. She was offered a plea deal in the case, which, if accepted, would probably mean she’d spend some time on house arrest. But Our Lady of Zero Consequences wasn’t too fond of that and wanted, well, no punishment at all. She obviously hasn’t considered that her other alternative is actually going to jail or she just doesn’t care, because after refusing the deal, prosecutors have now taken it off the table. You snooze, you lose, lady.
Prosecutors have ended plea negotiations with Lindsay Lohan and are preparing for a trial Monday … this according to law enforcement sources.
We’re told negotiations broke down because Lindsay won’t accept ANY punishment for lying to cops in connection with her car accident last June. As we reported, Lindsay told police she was NOT driving the Porsche that crashed into a truck on Pacific Coast Highway — she was.
Fact is … negotiations were doomed from the get-go, because Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, did not have his client on board when he tried cutting a deal.
There’s one other chance of avoiding trial. Everyone must be in court Monday, and Lindsay’s lawyer could try and enter a plea, but given Lindsay’s state of mind … it’s highly unlikely.
Trial will start Monday. In addition to the lying-to-cops crime, Lindsay could face months in jail for violating her probation in her jewelry heist case — part of the probation was to obey all laws.
Will Lindsay end up in jail? Most likely not, as the California court system seems to think she’s too good for it for some unknown reason. Seriously, I know the prison system is overcrowded, but a few months in a locked cell could do this girl worlds of good in so many senses. I’m not suggesting we throw away the key or anything just yet, but we’ll see how things go.
