Wow! Everything's coming up Lohan!
At least it has the potential to!
Lindsay Lohan has just gotten two potentially very lucky breaks in regards to her latest court drama regarding the stolen necklace, which could mean that she may not even have to serve jail time at all!
According to the El Lay County Probation Department as well as the El Lay County Sheriff's Department - which is responsible for the jail where she would serve her sentence - inmates with non-violent, misdemeanor offenses are routinely allowed to serve their time at home with an electronic monitoring device.
In other news, Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, whom the formerly hard-pAArtying actress claimed had it out for her, will no longer be handling her case, and it is now been turned over to the Los Angeles City Attorney.
But there's a catch!
A source in the office explains:
"Our office was notified this morning that the Lohan theft case is being turned over to us. The case will be handled by the City Attorney assigned to the Airport Courthouse. It's a very big file, and the City Attorney will need time to read it over. The City Attorney could object to that [serving time at home]. When Paris Hilton was released from Lywnood to serve the remainder of her sentence at home, our office objected to that, and Paris was placed back in jail. It's way to early to determine what our position will be on the issue. Lindsay is a repeat offender, period. Our office will be in communication with Lindsay's attorney to discuss the case, and what their position on the matter is."
Uh-oh! Sounds as though they're going to be just as tolerant as DA Meyers was about Lindsay's nonsense!
Stay on your best behavior, gurl!
If you keep your nose out of trouble and play your cards right, we have a feeling that this whole mess may be behind you sooner rather than later!
