Nobody has an extremely positive outlook for Lindsay's pending appeal of her broken parole ruling. Bummer!
Not only could it take months to appeal, but it looks like it'll be straight up denied as well:
"Lindsay's appeal will most likely be denied. The only thing this appeal is doing is buying Lindsay time to stay out of jail. The appeal will be held by the Appellate Department of the Los Angeles Superior Court, in front of three judges.
“Misdemeanor probation violation appeals are hardly ever overturned, especially when the defendant has been formally found in violation two times in the past year, one time with a jail sentence, and the other time, an extended rehab stint at Betty Ford. Judge Sautner was well within her discretion and within the limits of the law to sentence her to 120 days in jail. Lindsay could have been sentenced to six months in jail, it could have been worse."
That DOES look pretty bleak for Linds, unfortunately!
The source continues:
“Lindsay's criminal history is going to hurt her appeal, no doubt. The two DUI arrests coupled with the grand theft arrest, and the fact Lindsay has been formally found in violation of terms on three separate occasions in the past year alone, she has no shot at having Judge Sautner's sentence thrown out. If Lindsay were smart, she would give up on the appeal, and accept the fact she is going to jail. The moment she was charged in connection with the necklace being stolen, she was going back to jail for the probation violation, regardless of whether she was guilty or innocent at trial."
We agree. Just do the time, prove your overall innocence in the necklace case, stay sober, and get back to acting! It's time for your life to become happy and healthy, that's for sure!
And we definitely think you can do it, gurl! Just gotta stay the course!
