To plea bargain or not to plea bargain – that is the question Lindsay Lohan seems to have been wrestling with over the past couple weeks, and has finally come up with a decision. Let’s pray it’s the right one!
According to Perez Hilton, Lohan has decided not to take the plea bargain Judge Schwartz offered, concerning her felony grand theft case.
TMZ reports that Lindsay met lawyer, Shawn Holley, on Tuesday afternoon to discuss her options, but is standing firm on her claim of innocence and has decided to go to trial where she will face the “tough but fair,” Judge Sautner.
While Lohan might think this is a good idea, we hope she knows a storm is brewing and it won’t go down all-too quietly! According to TMZ, prosecutor Danette Meyers will be claiming that Lohan’s behaviour on probation has been “unsatisfactory” and that Lohan has a history of stealing, and will ask for six months in jail.
“Meyers will allege Lindsay has a history of stealing – a $12,000 mink coat in 2008, a $400,000 necklace in 2009, and a $35,000 Rolex in 2010,” claims TMZ.
We wish you the best of luck Lindsay! With all the evidence against you, you just might need all the luck you can get!
Lohan is set to go to trial next month.
Kanye West got away with it this time. According to TMZ, Kanye’s case involving a run-in with photograhers at LAX was dismissed today. Kanye and his manager Don Crowley had been charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft after smashing camera equipment of two photographers at LAX on September 11, 2008.
In October the judge agreed to dismiss the case if both Kanye and Crowley performed 50 hours of community service. They agreed, as well as to taking anger management classes. Kanye’s lawyer, Blair Berk, and Crowley’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, went to court to prove the men had kept their word and worked 50 hours at the Red Cross. Lucky for them, the case is now history.
