Like we've said since day one, we really do hope that she takes this plea deal!
With merely days away before Lindsay Lohan decides whether or not to take her felony grand theft case to trial or not, sources close to the case have revealed that if the formerly hard-pAArtying starlet does, Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers will be using her history of taking things that aren't hers - remember that rolex and mink coat? - as evidence that she has no problem stealing!
The insider explains:
"There is very damaging information about Lindsay's past evidence of thefts, including a stolen Rolex, which a friend of hers reported as stolen last April 2010, which will be made public if Lindsay doesn't take the plea deal. Lindsay was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department last spring after a friend reported that after leaving the Rolex at Lohan's apartment, it wasn't returned immediately. Actually, it was quite a bit of time later that the watch was returned to the person. The watch was valued at a whopping, 35k, and like the current theft case, Lindsay was photographed wearing the watch. Lindsay wasn't charged in that case because the victim became uncooperative as soon as the watch was returned. The D.A. will be sending investigators out from the office to talk to the victim. Meyers wants to know if there was a financial pay off. It will absolutely be brought up either at the preliminary hearing or the trial. This will establish a pattern of behavior on, that Meyers will prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Lindsay is guilty in this case. It doesn't matter that Lindsay wasn't criminally charged in those previous incidents. Meyers can, and will subpoena police that investigated those, and as well as the accusers if she needs to. Lindsay has major entitlement issues, which have led her down this very dark road. If Lindsay is smart, she will take the plea deal. Lindsay won't know what will hit her if the case proceeds to a preliminary hearing, and trial. Meyers is tough as nails, make no mistake about it. Lindsay truly has no idea how bad this could get, and how fast. This could truly ruin her career. Look at the Winona Ryder case, her career suffered after the guilty conviction, and she didn't have the criminal record that Lindsay has. [Claims that Lindsay's probation report could be very harmful to her in trial] That is just implicitly false. There is nothing bad in the report, period. It's a standard probation report. In fact, Lindsay's lawyer could use it as evidence if the case goes to the preliminary hearing, because it's actually good for her. It states that Lindsay is a good probationer. The probation report doesn't include any of the past theft incidents. The past theft incidents don't involve the probation department, Meyers is the only one dealing with the past theft incidents, period."
Uh-oh! Sounds like Meyers is NOT messing around!
Not that we anticpated that she would! Lady is probably effing TIRED of having to deal with LiLo's nonsense!
Time to just accept that jail is a reality, gurl, and cut your losses! This trial is NOT going to be pretty, and we have a feeling that if you try and take the case there, the only person who is going to end up burned is you!
What do U think?? Should LiLo take the plea deal?
