Seriously, we don't know what is keeping her from taking this deal. She's really playing with fire here!
When Lindsay Lohan arrived for her grand theft hearing last week, Judge Keith Schwartz offered her one last, at-that-time-unknown plea bargain, of which she can either accept or deny, in which case would mean she's heading to trial.
The details of that specific bargain were then unknown, but sources have come forward to reveal what kind of consequences she'd be facing if she takes it, and frankly, we think she'd be crazy not to!
An insider explains:
"Lindsay should take the plea deal, period. That deal would include the least amount of jail time possible in the case. Judge Schwartz has told Lindsay that he would sentence her to 60-90 days, if she accepted a plea deal, which she would serve in county jail. If Lindsay does gamble, and go to trial, and the jury finds her guilty, there is a chance she wouldn't go to state prison. The DA would assess the evidence and the witness testimony, if the jury does find her guilty. State prison is absolutely NOT a foregone conclusion. Danette Meyers could ask Judge Sautner to place her on felony probation, instead of jail. It’s still very early in the case, the prelim hasn't taken place yet, but state prison isn't an automatic if Lindsay is convicted. There is jail time ahead for Lindsay though, there is no mistake about that. If she doesn’t accept the plea deal and insists on going to trial she will serve some time for parole violation, regardless of whether she is ultimately found guilty of the theft charges or not.”
As we've already reported, Lindsay must notify Judge Schwartz by March 23rd if she plans to take the deal, in which case, she'll be expected to appear in front of him on March 25th.
If she turns it down, she will appear in front of Judge Sautner for her preliminary hearing on April 21st.
Make the right choice, gurl! Luck can only save you so many times!
What do U think LiLo should do?
