This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Deals?! She don't need no stinkin' deals!
Lindsay Lohan did not accept a plea bargain offer which would have forced her into nine month rehab stint!
Instead, the troubled actress will roll the dice and possibly put herself on the stand in one of the most epic trials ever!!!
Sufferin' succotash, this is HUGE! If things go south, as they often do for the Mean Girls star, LiLo could wind up doing HARD TIME in jail!
Apparently, her new attorney Mark Heller whispered sweet nothings in her ear and convinced her to go the all-or-nothing route.
“Mark believes he can get Lindsay acquitted of all criminal charges stemming from her car accident in Santa Monica last summer. Lindsay has convinced Mark that she never lied to cops when they asked her if she was driving the car that day. There was a plea bargain offer on the table for Lindsay to go to rehab for nine months, but she absolutely refused that. Mark won’t sign off on a deal that sends Lindsay to rehab for more than 60 days.”
Lindsay, in fact, thinks her best bet is to appeal to a jury!
The source continues:
“There is talk of Lindsay taking the stand because she feels that once a jury hears her side of events she will be acquitted."
Hmm — she is an awfully talented actress!! Maybe she can convince the world she wasn't driving that car in Santa Monica way back when!!!
Do U think The Canyons star will pull it off?! Or is she destined for disaster?
