Oscar Pistorius may be forced to take a psychiatric evaluation!

We've seen plenty of pauses and breaks in the action in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial so far, and it looks like there's a chance we'll see an even bigger delay soon.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel filed a motion in court today and argued the paralympian should be forced to undergo a 30-day psychiatric evaluation to make sure his mental health wasn't a factor in the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.

This came after psychiatrist Merryll Vorster testified today and yesterday and went into great detail on how Oscar's past could have affected his mental state up to this point.

She started at his childhood, saying he could have viewed the amputation of his legs as

Filed under: Lindsay LohanDrugsLegal MattersRehabAlcohol

lindsay lohan rehab approved

Phew! Lindsay Lohan is in the clear!!

There’s been quite the kerfuffle over the actress’ 90-day rehab stint, what with her quick appearance at unlicensed and unauthorized Morningside Recovery.

However, her quick admittance at the Betty Ford Center has paid off! While Judge Jim Dabney accepted LiLo’s treatment at the rehab facility last week, case prosecutors had until today to oppose the decision. Luckily for Lindsay, they’ve approved, too!

As long as she completes her 90 days without a hitch, all should be well for the troubled actress!

Fingers crossed!

Lindsay Lohan Negotiating Last-Minute Plea Deal?! CRYING In The Judge's Chambers!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal MattersSad Sad

lindsay lohan trial chambers crying

So we STILL don't know when Lindsay Lohan's case will be called!

But that doesn't even matter! Because it looks as though the troubled, hard-pAArtying and legally-challenged starlet will FINALLY admit her guilt in lying to police at the scene of her PCH car accident last summer, as she and her lawyer, Mark Heller, have been in Judge Dabney's chambers with the District Attorney since she arrived 45 minutes late to court apparently hammering out a last-minute plea deal!

Witnesses say Lindsay's clearly been crying, while Prosecutor Terry White looks PISSED.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what the specifics are here, and what kind of punishment she'll be facing!

Here's hoping we'll know soon!

Lindsay Lohan Scrambles To Make Plea Deal Happen Before Court Hearing!

Lindsay Lohan

Let's hope Mark Heller is really the genius Lindsay Lohan thinks he is!

In a last-ditch effort to get the best plea deal possible for lying to the cops, Linds is meeting with her lawyer before she faces the jury in less than two weeks!

Everyone from LiLo's bodyguard to ex-assistant has been subpoenaed against her, but Mark apparently still thinks they have a shot at making a deal as good as a free meal.

A source explained:

“Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White has told Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, he would be willing to meet with her before the trial is scheduled to begin on March 18. Both sides are working towards hammering out a plea deal in the case, but as of right now, the possibility still exists any deal could include her going to rehab. Lindsay strongly feels that if she is able to talk to the prosecutor he will be able to see that she doesn’t need to enter a treatment facility. However, White is a respected and smart prosecutor, and he won’t be influenced by Lindsay’s celebrity status. He is treating her as he would any other defendant.”

Hopefully she'll put on her best performance yet during that plea deal, because gurlfriend is going to need it if she hopes to stay out of jail and rehab!

We would take whatever that prosecutor hands out, even if it is a stint in rehab!

On the slight chance that Linds does win in court, she could still face up to 245 days in the slammer for violating probation in that necklace theft incident.

Hopefully she didn't piss off Elizabeth Taylor's ghost too much, because she going to need all the supernatural help she can get!

Lindsay Lohan Losing Sweet Rehab Deal?! Begging Lawyer To Return?!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

Lindsay Lohan always pulls fast and furious at her Jenga game of life, but girl may have finally picked the wrong piece and her tower is about to topple the f*ck over…

Because when Lilo FIRED her longtime lawyer Shawn Holley yesterday — most likely because she can't afford her anymore — Shawn was apparently in transit to the courthouse to meet with the prosecutor AND the judge in order to arrange a rehab plea deal for ALL crimes being charged against Lindz!!

BUT, as we reported yesterday, Our Lady of Perpetual Chaos FIRED Shawn and traded her in for a notorios NYC Lawyer with a questionable history in practicing law.

We hear that if Shawn had made it to the courthouse yesterday, she could have secured a deal where
