Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer and the prosecutor have been trying to hammer out a plea bargain but have hit a wall, so now they’re having a sit down with the judge to break the stalemate. In any case – at this point there will be no agreement that does not include jail time for Lindsay.
Sources connected to the case say Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Holley has been speaking with prosecutor Dannette Meyers about copping a plea in Lindsay’s felony grand theft necklace case, but Meyers won’t budge on six months in jail.
Consequently, Holley and Meyers will go to court next week and meet with Judge Keith Schwartz in his chambers. We’re told Holley will ask the judge what sentence he’d hand down if Lindsay pleads guilty or no contest.
Sources familiar with the case and Judge Schwartz believe he would probably go for a three-month sentence.
Both Meyers and Holley believe Lindsay will only do 20% of the actual sentence because of overcrowding. So, if Judge Schwartz gave Lindsay three months, she’d only serve 18 days.
Judge Schwartz is known as a settlement judge, so it’s likely a deal can be struck if Lindsay’s willing to accept that she’s going to do some jail time, no matter what.
Does Lindsay Lohan belong in jail? Is she a danger to society? No and No – that is our opinion.
