Lindsay's History Of Theft Is Going To Come Back And Bite Her In The Ass!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohans-history-of-thievery-to-be-used-against-her-in-court

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?

LiLo's Thinking About Taking The Plea Deal!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-to-accept-plea-deal

Smart girl! We knew she'd come around!

Despite her reported refusal to cooperate, sources close to Lindsay Lohan have revealed that she is FINALLY starting to realize that she can't avoid jail time, and is now "seriously considering" Judge Keith Schwartz's plea deal in her felony grand theft trial.

The formerly hard-pAArtying starlet is STILL maintaining her innocence in the whole mess, but has now begun to realize that a three month jail sentence - which will most likely get reduced to 19 days due to overcrowding - is a lot safer than the risk of a more severe sentence if she actually does go forward with the trial!

Exactly!

Well, she's got until Wednesday to make up her mind. Here's hoping that she makes the right choice!

No Continuance For Lindsay Theft Case???

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-no-continuance.jpg

There seems to be a bit of confusion over what is going to go down this morning during Lindsay Lohan's felony theft hearing. All we know for sure is that is going to be inneresting.

Earlier, we reported that yesterday, after meeting with LiLo's lawyer and the D.A., Judge Schwartz offered his final plea deal for Lindsay to mull over and reportedly, he was going to grant her more time to think it over.

However, another source insists that Judge Schwartz will demand Lindsay make up her mind TODAY about whether or not she'll accept his deal. He will not allow her to wait. An insider directly connected with the case insists:

"There will be NO continuance granted by Judge Keith Schwartz, period, end of discussion. Judge Schwartz told Lohan at the last hearing that he wouldn't continue the case again."

Whether she'll be sentenced today to not, we'll have to wait and see, but something that both sources agree upon is that the Judge's offer includes jail time. From what we gather, it seems to be a prudent decision for her to take this deal, considering that if she allows this thing to got to trial, she'll be transferred to Judge Stephanie Sautner who is regarded as a "tough as nails, by the book judge." The inside source adds:

"If Lindsay does decide to do an open plea in front of Judge Schwartz on Thursday, he will likely then set the matter for sentencing, which will then likely be set for another date in the very near future."

Sounds fair to us.

Look, at this point, Lindsay really just needs to ask herself what she is willing to give up - 21 days of her life or 10 years.

Take the deal, LiLo. Take it!!!

Lindsay Ready To Go To Trial, Claims Innocence

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay lohan ready to go to trial to prove her innocence

Lindsay Lohan will not go gentle into that good night.

Today, Judge Keith L. Schwartz will make a decision regarding Lindsay's case, and sources say that Schwartz wants Lindz to do some jail time.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers will offer a plea bargain, but given the fact that jail time will be part of any deals, Lindsay is NOT interested and she's prepared to go to trial to prove her innocence.

Given the fact that Lindsay was just offered her first movie role in quite some time, we can understand why she'd ESPECIALLY want to avoid jail time…or at least delay it until after she makes the movie.

Thoughts???

LiLo's Looking For A Plea Deal

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-seeks-plea-deal.jpg

Operation "Keep LiLo Out Of The Clink" continues into phase two: Seek a plea deal for a lesser sentence!

Thought she still maintains her innocence, sources close to Lindsay Lohan reveal she has her lawyer working overtime to get the D.A. to agree to a plea deal, one that does not include jail time.

As we understand it , during the hearing yesterday, Judge Keith Schwartz granted Shawn Chapman Holley a new hearing date so that she and the prosecutor could talk about a plea bargain. From what we know, Lindsay is willing to plead guilty, so long as it means she's kept out of prison.

Just one problem with that - the prosecutor's out for blood! Oh yeah, Danette Meyers is not foolin' around this time. She wants Lindsay to serve some time for what she's done, past and present, so she and LiLo's lawyer are at an impasse.

There is some hope for Lindsay, though. Her freedom could come if Judge Schwartz feels like being kind to her. As we understand it, in a case such as this where there is only one charge, a defendant can cut a deal with a judge, taking the D.A. out of the picture. If LiLo's lawyer can persuade the judge to make a ruling himself, he could grant her assurance that Lindsay won't go back to prison and the case could go away.

But the likelihood of that happening? Considering the wrath he spewed yesterday, we're thinking slim to none.
