unthinkable likely has happened and Lindsay Lohan may finally make orange jumpsuits fashionable.
Our Lady of Perpetual Chaos lost her probation status during an arraignment hearing yesterday, and on January 15th, Lindz will be tried for probation violation, where she could be sentenced to 8 months behind bars.
Despite the fact that the judge overseeing the case — Commissioner Jane Godfrey — tends to favor rehabilitation programs over jail time, one defense attorney believes that if Lindsay doesn't comply with every tiny demand the judge gives her, she WILL go straight to the slammer.
The attorney explains:
"Anyone who says that Lindsay is going to skate again is just misinformed because Commissioner Jane Godfrey is a hard taskmaster. Godfrey handles the Drug Court Program and defendants enrolled must undergo at least of a year of inpatient treatment for their addiction, show up to court for progress reports and not test dirty. The idea that Lindsay could benefit from this is absurd. Godfrey has sent defendants in the Drug Court Program to jail if they test dirty or don't show up to court."
BUT, even if Lindsay avoids jail once again for her probation drama, she still has to stand trial for the three crimes she's being charged with in connection to her June car crash.
Apparently, while the L.A. City Attorney is super enthusiastic about putting Lindz in the pokey for probation violation, Chief Deputy Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White — the dude who is prosecuting Lindsay for lying to cops and such — isn't that concerned about jail and apparently would be satisfied with community service!
IF Lindsay is found guilty in all offenses, she could potentially face 19 months scrubbing toilets in the local jailhouse.
Well, whatever happens, it's gonna be a legal-celebrity-circus of epic proportions, but will Lindsay be fed to the lions or will she sad-clown the sh*t out of it and get off easy?
Girl walks that tightrope like a pro!
