Lindsay Lohan was back in court this morning in LA, facing the Judge to determine if there would be a formal hearing for her felony grand theft charge. Lindsay was charged after she allegedly stole a necklace from a Venice Beach jewelry store. It was rumored that Lindsay might possibly take a plea bargain today – if there was no jail time included in that bargain – but things didn’t go exactly as she planned, as Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers reportedly wanted her in jail for six months. The judge addressed Lindsay and made it very clear that she will be treated like everyone else, and that he isn’t going to give her special consideration because she’s a celebrity. He promised her that if the case was resolved in his courtroom she would be going to jail.
Judge Keith Schwartz told the famous defendant bluntly, “I don’t care that you’re Lindsay Lohan.” Judge Schwartz did not say how much jail time Lindsay would do if she cops a plea. And, Judge Schwartz wants a psychological evaluation that will help him understand what makes Lindsay tick and what particular sentence is appropriate. The judge explained … if Lindsay pleads guilty or no contest, it will be an automatic admission she violated her probation.
Lindsay’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley asked for more time to review the jewelry store surveillance video she just received today. So Lindsay will be back in court again on March 10th. At that point, she’ll either accept a plea and go to jail or she’ll stand trial and if she’s found guilty she could get 1 year in state prison. So it looks like anyway you slice it, Lindsay’s going to be back behind bars. My question is: Why isn’t she in jail already? Enough is enough!
