Lindsay Lohan refuses to take a plea deal in LA because she’s so innocent

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the return of LINNOCENT! I kind of missed “Linnocent”. “Linnocent” was the version of Lindsay Lohan when all she did in the face of overwhelming evidence of her wrong-doings was to simply deny, deny, deny. She always proclaimed her own innocence, even when there was flat-out video evidence to the contrary. Even when there was a police record, even when there was an audio recording. LINNOCENT LIVES! So, as you can guess, Lindsay Lohan will not be taking a plea deal in her LA case – because she’s super-innocent.

Lindsay Lohan doesn’t care that the prosecutor in her car crash case is willing to let her skate without spending a day in jail … because she won’t plea bargain a case in which she says she’s innocent.

TMZ broke the story … attorney Shawn Holley was on her way to court Monday to negotiate a deal in Lindsay’s lying-to-cops car crash case when she got her walking papers. Law enforcement sources tell us … the prosecutor was willing to let Lindsay plead no contest and agree to six months of lockdown rehab — NO JAIL.

Presumably, the offer is still on the table but we’re told Lindsay could not be less interested. She doesn’t think she did anything wrong and will not plead to a crime she says she didn’t commit.

FYI — our law enforcement sources tell us … prosecutors have her dead to rights, because she told cops she was a passenger in the Porsche when there’s overwhelming evidence she was the driver.

So get this … if the case goes to trial and Lindsay is found guilty, she faces 19 months in jail. On top of that, the lying-to-cops case has triggered a probation violation in her jewelry heist case and she could get ANOTHER 245 days for that.

It’s hard to keep track.

[From TMZ]

It is confusing, so let me see if I can get this straight – Lindsay’s next court date is the 30th, right? And that court date is for her probation violation – we haven’t even gotten to the court dates for the actual charge of lying to the police about being the driver during her car accident on the PCH last summer. So, Shawn Holley was trying to work out a plea deal for both of those criminal incidents – the lying to the police AND the probation violation? And under the deal Shawn was working on, Lindsay would have been on crack-lockdown at a hardcore rehab facility for six months. But Lindsay won’t take the deal because she’s super-innocent. Totally.

    TAKE THE ARFING PLEA ALREADY. Is this because that last time she was in rehab she ended up gaining 10 lbs? Cos your boobs are begging you to gain 10 lbs dude. And Tina Fey is begging you to stop making her look bad for believing in you. TAKE IT. TAKE THE PLEA.

  2. Elceibeno says:

    She is never ever going to pay for her crack-nanigans. Her armor of crack-teflon is impervious to the LA law.

  3. Amelia says:

    Citizen’s arrest, anyone?
    “For disturbing the peace by way of audacious crack shenanigans”?
    Make sure you’ve got your hazmat suit handy, though. You never know what deadly pathogens could be growing in those extensions … move over, Ebola; bow to the grimey deadliness of Crackonic plague.
    Christ, I really need to sleep.

  4. lucy2 says:

    If she refused a rather generous plea, I hope they really go after and get a lot of jail time for her.

    • Susan says:

      I doubt she’d get much actual jail time mainly because she’d be expensive to incarcerate since:

      -She would need drug rehab and maybe even dental care while in jail.
      -She would need to be in a secure section of what is probably an over-populated jail facility.
      -There are probably more dangerous people on the streets of LA that should actually be locked up who’s place Linnocent would be filling.

      Her lawyer knows this, which is why she is getting these sweet plea bargains. Linnocent knows they can’t touch her. If I were the presiding judge on her case, I’d be p-to-the-i-s-s-e-d that such a low-life was able to make a mockery out of the criminal justice system. If she won’t take this plea, Lohan really should just be dropped in gen pop at a low security facility. I say make her work at Walmart during the day for a wage and then make her report back to facility at night.

      I think the harshest treatment she could get would be to treat her like the average generic criminal who could turn their life around if they chose to actual do so.

  5. logan says:

    I say just let her go on being the joke that she is. Can’t act, can’t sing, can’t model, can’t produce or sell a product, can’t obey any law, can’t tell the truth, can’t do rehab, etc. She is the Can’t Do girl of 2013. Just let her go on just as she is, just who would make us feel better about our own lives? Just pray she doesn’t kill anyone in the process.

  6. Kate (newer one) says:

    She’s like the poster-child for addiction at this point, down to the narcissism and denial.

    An NHL player tweeted that “Lindsay Lohan has more chance of a come-back” about a football team. That’s harsh, but painfully true. She needs that lockdown rehab like nothing else. Were I a judge on her case I’d sentence her to a year in one, with no early escape possible, because good behaviour would be the aim. It’s a sad fact, but prison won’t help her one bit. Rehab with no escape options might.

    • swack says:

      While I agree that rehab is probably what will help her the most, it won’t because she doesn’t believe she has a problem. Weening her off the drugs and booze doesn’t mean anything because she will leave rehab and go back to her old habits. She does not take rehab or counseling seriously.

      • Kate (newer one) says:

        I do wonder if a year in a place where she is weaned off not only drugs, but sycophants and enablers, might help more? Most addicts aren’t surrounded by a team of people with a strong vested interest in agreeing with them. She can’t hit rock bottom while she’s everyone’s meal ticket – they won’t let her. If she’s in a state-mandated rehab, where everyone treats her as just one more addict and no allowances are made, and she’s stuck there month after month, it at least might have more of a chance of shifting her attitude than anything else. Not a huge shot, but perhaps the only one she has left.

        I don’t know. She’s still so young, and though I do feel contemptuous I also can’t help wondering how much better most of us would have done, in her situation and with those parents. I know some people overcome horrible childhoods and grow into fantastic adults, but talk to anyone who works with extremely violent young people; they rarely grew up skipping through meadows, you know? With a normal, good-enough family, she might be a perfectly nice adult today. Instead she was basically pimped out by her own parents before she was in her teens.

        I think I feel vaguely disgusted pity for her, if that makes any sense.

      • G says:

        Unfortunately , she seems to have zero self-awareness and zero capacity for self-reflection.

        Two bad qualities for a criminal or an artist.

      • swack says:

        Here’s the thing, I don’t believe they will treat her as just another addict. People seem to go so far out of the way to do what SHE thinks is what she needs and should have and not what is necessarily good for her. I also think she knows how to play the system and will never be in lockdown more than a month – mandated or not. If she does go to lockdown, she needs to go somewhere (away from Cali and NY) that no one knows about so that she could (and that’s a big IF) concentrate on herself. She should also not be allowed visitors for at least 3 months.

    • jwoolman says:

      Even her loser father has said for a long time that she needs at least six months in rehab. Really successful programs tend to be a year long or even more, but the court may have limits on what they can require. She may be only 26, but she’s been boozing and drugging at least since her mid-teens. And her mom tried to pimp out all her kids since they were toddlers, dragging them to auditions for commercials, modeling jobs, etc. but really hit pay dirt with Lindsay. A cute natural redhead has a lot more work than other types, because they’re rare enough to be memorable. Plus when Lindsay was a kid, she was probably quite directable (not any more, though). My bet is that Dina got her started on Adderall to keep her thin and there was plenty of booze in the house while Lindsay was living there, easy to get at and even acceptable on holidays and other occasions. I don’t think Lindsay was “spoiled” but rather would have been better off raised by wolves, and was under considerable stress in her childhood to keep the money coming in and mom’s vicarious Hollywood lifestyle up, punctuated by very uncomfortable and traumatic visits from her loser father in between jail/prison stays.

      Anyway, she has to get away from her parents and learn how to put her miserable childhood behind her before she has a chance of real happiness instead of the booze/drug induced simulation she has now. I suspect Dina is a major pressure against the long-term rehab/whatever program idea, it will mean no income directly from Lindsay for a long time. I don’t think Dina cares too much about the details of how that income is earned, she just rationalizes it away in her head. Of course, this will put even more pressure on Dina’s Lindsay-substitute Ali. Wish Ali could escape from it all also, she just turned 19 and looks dead inside and outside.

      • BestJes says:

        The sad truth is there isn’t really any successful drug rehab program. They work if people really want to change. By that I mean away from the issues of ‘I *have* to change’ because of custody of children, economic, health, incarceration, but because they simply don’t want to be a slave anymore. Those people succeed at roughly the same proportions regardless of what program (or none) they use.

        That’s not to say rehab is worthless, for many it allows brief periods of sobriety which is enough to keep them completely falling off the planet and helps to keep the ABI away. For some even that is a huge improvement.

  7. Hautie says:

    If Lohan actually holds on to this delusional belief she is innocent. She just may find her dumb ass in prison for a year.

    But I suspect this is her typical, running off at the mouth.

    Hoping she is offer a deal that means no rehab time, to end all the drama. Hedging her bets, that her lawyer can get her out of forced rehab.

    Which this being LA. I would not be surprised, that they end up letting her walk off without rehab or jail time.

  8. Mia 4S says:

    Lindsay’s delusions of comeback! and Oscar! are the only entertaining things about her these days. The rest is sad and (especially if she is driving) dangerous.

    As an aside, I continue to be amused by how the supporting players in her teen star days have resoundingly surpassed her. Not just surpassed but became stars. You have Amanda Seyfried and Rachel MacAdams from Mean Girls, Chris Pine was her co-star in that awful Just My Luck (bullet dodged dear fellow!), even Megan Fox was in that Confessions movie with her and now works more.

    I’ll put my money on any of the above people (yes even Fox) to win an Oscar before Lilo.

    • booboocita says:

      And the established stars with whom she’s acted — Tina Fey, Meryl Streep, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, etc. — aren’t coming to her defense. From what I can tell, none of them are even interested in a phone call/welfare check. If they were, I suspect Lindsay would trumpet it to the skies: “I was on the phone with Meryl last night … we’re so close, she gave me a necklace …” Of course, Meryl would clutch her neck right after, shrieking, “Where the hell are my pearls?”

      I’m beginning to wonder if Lindsay would have anyone to turn to if she were to reach out for help getting sober. Would James Deen or Paul Schrader drive her to rehab if she asked one of them to? Would anyone else?

  9. jwoolman says:

    If she didn’t just live in a box in the alley and prefers to avoid jail and rehab, maybe they could put her under strict house arrest for a real six months. Like real people get, not the easy version she had before. No booze even in the house, SCRAM and locator bracelet (and if a mysterious sticky yellow liquid gums up the sending unit again, as happened last time, add an appropriate time to her sentence). Random tests for all her other pharmaceutical comfort foods. Only one approved visitor at a time. No Internet, no Twitter. No phone except for calls to and from an approved list, with time restrictions. No work while under house arrest. If she doesn’t like it, there’s always the lockdown rehab option.

    If she is so working on her sobriety as she claims, this will be easy. Think of all the scripts she can read, and how caught up she’ll be with Homeland.

  10. dcypher1 says:

    Shes dumb. Shes not going to get a better deal than that. So hopefully they prove that shes guilty and finally goes to jail. And make the world a bettet place a lilo free place sounds wonderful.

    • Nina W says:

      I don’t think she’s dumb but she is unfocused, uneducated and mostly unconscious. You have to remember she has been victimized by her parents her entire life. They didn’t bother getting her an education or teaching her coping skills or nurturing her they just used her as a meal ticket. I know she is a hot mess but she’s also a really sad story.

      • Jano1981 says:

        My parents didn’t give a crap about my education. I moved out at 15. There are other things I could tell you about where I faced an uphill battle. I never ever behaved like Lindsay due to these things. Throw cameras and fame at my parents and they would be the same as her parents are. She had choices.

  11. Dee Cee says:

    And think of her human rights.. her right to travel anywhere in the world.. might be denied or restricted if she is a convicted criminal.. rehab or not.. certain restrictions on convicted felons continue long after a term of incarceration and parole or probation is completed. Some of these restrictions exist even if an individual is convicted of what amounts to a fairly minor felony.
    Restrictions on international travel is significant for convicted felons. Some countries do not permit convicted felons inside their borders, even for short vacations. Domestic travel in the United States generally is not restricted for a convicted felon once she is off probation or parole or federal supervised release.

    • erika says:

      ….and she could watch her ‘dating’ (heh hum….hooker) career go out the door….

      if the HoLo can’t travel int”lly she can’t hooker w/ her…’friends’ abroad. wow…

      hey, i know, why won’t one of her ‘romantic friends’ with $$$ come to her aid?

  12. booboocita says:

    I started to type a long-ish response to this item, but then I realize: just about everything that could have been said has already been said, and the only thing that’s left to say is: rest in peace, Lindsay. And the time to say that hasn’t yet come, but will soon. Sometime in 2013, I suspect, barring some sort of miracle.

  13. Nympha says:

    I really want to beleive that she will do some real time in jail, or at least spend half a year in rehab, but I still remember the last time too well.
    Ugh. Let’s hope though. She NEEDS to sober up and think about what a mess her life has become.

  14. Cathy says:

    Awwww, poor crackenmonster. She’s so misunderstood. Whatever. She needs some serious jail. I’m tired of her antics. She needs to go away for a long time before she kills herself or somebody who is actually innocent, unlike herself.

  15. Ruyana says:

    Rehab cannot be imposed on someone, it has to be wanted and worked for or there’s no effect. She’d be a nightmare for the rehab center if she went. Temper tantrums, fights, etc.

    Why do they keep messing with “jail”? Why not send her to a state prison?

    I don’t think anything at all will help her now, no matter what they do. Keeping her out of society will protect others, but won’t make a dent on her delusions and addictions.

  16. judyjudy says:

    I wish there were such a thing as a court-ordered cold shoulder. No one would be able to look at, talk to, write about, or acknowledge Lilo for a full year. Or her parents. THAT is the only thing that would work at this point.

    • booboocita says:

      Interesting notion — a judicial shunning. Amish, yet possibly effective.

    • Apsutter says:

      Omg…have you ever watched the second version of “The Twilight Zone?” It was the one that aired in the 1980s and was actually quite good. Well one of the episodes was about a man who had brazenly committed a crime and had been sentenced to a year as an “Undesirable.” It was set in the future where there are cameras everywhere and everything could be monitored. So basically they give him this mark on his forehead which signals to others that it is forbidden to talk to and even acknowledge him. At first he thinks it’ll be a walk in the park but he gets more and more desperate for human contact and it humbles him. Great episode! That is the kind of thing that the criminal known as LILO needs

  17. grabbyhands says:

    Oh please, she’s not going to jail any time soon, plea deal or not. Apparently she’s realized that it doesn’t matter if she pretends to be sorry or not since she never really gets punished for the shit she pulls.

  18. Becky says:

    I agree that Linnocent is infuriating, but this overwhelming desire to see her punished seems… moot? The girl might have access to many things that we would appreciate so much more, but she is, hands down, one of the unhappiest people I can think of. Being Lindsay must be unbearable, stuck in that body and mind…. Delusion is really the only way to survive.

  19. Lem says:

    Issues I see with 6 month lockdown
    A) 6 months won’t make a lifestyle change
    B) family day -

  20. oh dear says:

    she can be innocent in prison..

    for about 1 month, you know, until they release her early due to prison overcrowding.

    how is it that that one teen mom girl is serving 5 years for failing to get clean, wesley snipes is serving god knows how many years for tax invasion and michael douglas’ son is serving an extra 5 years for taking drugs in prison yet this girl gets away with everything hmm

    must be the good lawyer!

  21. skuddles says:

    You guys are being much too hard on poor, innocent Lilo. She didn’t lie to the cops… she just couldn’t remember what really happened because she was too pissed and wasted on pills. Give the poor girl a break!

  22. Sisi says:

    I thought I was having a bad hair day, but I feel much better after seeing these pictures.

    Ah, Linnocent does serve a purpose

  23. Str8Shooter says:

    She could rob an orphanage run by blind nuns, kill everyone in sight, and even sell intel to China. And STILL this girl won’t do time.


  24. erika says:

    “Lindsay won’t take the plea deal because she’s super ADDICTED.”

    she can’t go 13 minutes w/out shoving some powder up her nose or guzzling some vodka down her CrackRoach Throat….

    Why do I get so rowled up over her? Like, I’m tense right now just over the possibility (likely….) that she will go SCOTT FREE AGAIN!

    does she have to murder someone in order to get jail time?

    P.S….I want to roll that black fur coat up and shove it right up her arse…..

    • Lady D says:

      I know how you feel erika. I’m just about the most non-violent person I know. I step around insects on the sidewalk for cripes sake. I’ve never physically harmed anyone and my personal belief system is going to keep it that way. Having said that, I’m actually entertaining the idea of finding and smacking her right upside the head if she skates again. My bad.

  25. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Getting far too repetitive now…

    Of course she is innocent, in Lohan world (which is drugs, drink, delusion, p1mping, hookering, violence, paranoia, pathalogical lying, kleptomania, god complex,) She never does any wrong, she’s Lindsay Lohan ffs!!!

  26. Madriani's Girl says:

    I’m so over this raddled skank.

  27. Madisyn says:

    Rehab would be an utter waster of EVERY ONES time. She does NOT want to get clean. The MOMENT she gets out, she’ll just resume her ‘normal’ habits. It would be a disservice and disruption to people who are really trying to get clean. I find it repugnant that rehab is even on the table, if true. The VOP and 3 new charges have NOTHING to do with d/or/a. Blohan herself will tell anyone who will listen she doesn’t have a problem. Rehab has been done 5 times and only to save her ‘career’ early on and then to circumvent jail. The ONLY thing that has not been tried is JAIL. Even with overcrowding and LA inmates doing 1/4 of their time, if the judge gives her the 245 days hanging over her head in the VOP alone comes out to about 2 full months in the slammer and thats not counting the possible 19 months if this IDIOT goes to trial and loses, which she will. The seat belt welts put her in the drivers seat alone, forget the witnesses and possible trafficams. Throw her flat, freckled ass in jail, it will wipe that perpetual smirk off her face if nothing else . . .

    • Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

      Agree wholeheartedly with you Maddy. But a few things I think are working here.

      1) Any sentence at all will be appealed, so the judge has to be very careful not to appear to be treating her any more harshly than she would any other resident f— up. You know her legal team will argue that she was treated unfairly and the judge will have to do all kinds of crap that isn’t worth the trouble, so she will skate (esp. if Holley is with her).

      2) This ongoing addiction question is maddening. Sautner said in court that she DID NOT have an addiction problem and discontinued her drug testing. UCLA confirmed when they sprang her well ahead of her sentence. So how is it that she can continue to holler addiction when it is convenient yet deny it when it is not convenient? And why doesn’t the DA in LA ever call these inconsistencies out in court? Once again…the legal blowback. No one wants to deal with this dirty skank for any longer than they have to, and everyone wants to fly under the radar in terms of having her/her sentencing/future legal action reflect badly on them.

      It is infuriating for those of us out here just trying to do our jobs and live our lives to see this law-breaking scofflaw continue to smirk at the system and get away with i.

      (formerly known as Boo)

      • Lady D says:

        Tell you one thing I’ve learned from her Boo, Los Angeles is the place to break the law. Also, why doesn’t the DA bring up all the times she was sprung early to go right back to her life of violence and crime? You would think that sooner or later the law of averages would work against her. She is so due for some grief. And speaking of grief, isn’t Holly due soon? Anyone that comes in contact with the Cracken suffers for it. Law of averages is going to work against Holly soon. I wonder if that story about being owed 300g by the Cracken is true.
        OT: I’ve always thought your Cool phos was a awesome moniker.

      • Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

        Thanks, Lady D! I agree that someone on the side of the law should have an obligation to point out that her rate of re-offending and violating parole is sky-high and has not been controlled by rehab (how many times is it now?), community service (how many hours are we pretending she served?), therapy (how many hours?), classes (?), or house arrest (one big party!). Beyond that, her bad behavior is escalating: pinching a necklace puts no one’s life in danger. Crashing into the back of another vehicle on PCH and then lying about it puts lots of people in danger.

        It’s always so curious, though, because the prosecutors hardly ever say a word other than “yes, your honor.”

      • Madisyn says:

        I’ll tell ya what will finally stop the madness of never ending probation, CS, ‘therapy’ (which she fvcking phones in), or house arrest (which won’t happen again, plus she doesn’t have a ‘house’ and the courts don’t do HOTEL ARREST at the CM), a good, long JAIL stint. Send her to jail and then all this other nonsense stops post haste. Then she’ll be free to plan and plot her next grift or crime. Good times for the ‘cracktini’ set . . .

  28. The Original Mia says:

    She’s dumb. 6 months of rehab and she’d have this latest case behind her, but then she’d have to give up drinking, sexing and shopping. Dumb broad.

  29. WendyNerd says:

    I hope to God this is true. Because if it is…. Then my prayers have been answered.

  30. BestJes says:

    If the US just gave up on the unwinnable war against drugs AND making it possible for people to profit from private prisons you’d actually have space in your jails for reprobates like Lohan. The problem isn’t that she takes drugs, or even abuses them. Millions of people do that without hurting anyone other themselves (and not even that in many cases). The problem is that she assaults people, steals, drives under the influence and attempts to pervert justice. Unfortunately your prisons are running at 4 TIMES capacity and many of those imprisoned are there for non violent drug related crimes. Your choice America.

  31. amir says:

    nice sharing from wwwdotstarsgossipsdotcom

  32. WendyNerd says:

    I honestly do think she believes she’s done nothing wrong. Because in Blowhan’s mind, she can do no wrong because she’s such a “Talented artist” that all the ridiculous shit she does is just her being “Artistic” and “eccentric”. It’s just part of the “artistic process”. Part of her “tortured artist” thing. She’s nto a thieving, lying, self-centered bitch, she’s just “tortured” because of how “talented” and “creative” she is. It’s okay that she treats people like shit and steals their stuff because they should just be happy to come into contact with someone like her. In her mind, she’s a genius. She’s Hemmingway, Holiday, Morrison, Monroe… Laws don’t apply to her because it would be wrong to repress her “genius” with things like “laws.” And everyone should just let her be Lindsay. By doing things like holding her accountable for her actions and not giving her everything she wants combined with unadulterated adoration, we’re not letting her be great. She would be so great if we just let her do whatever she wants and let her have everything in the world. It’s our fault, see, because we just won’t let her be great. So yeah, in her mind, she’s an innocent victim of her own awesomeness and a world jealous of her and intent on denying her ALL THE OSCARS ALL THE NOBEL PRIZES, ALL THE GRAMMYS, EMMYS, TONYS, PULITZERS.

    In her mind, if it weren’t for jealous meanies charging her with stuff, expecting her to show up on time, not letting her have all sorts of free shit and denying her everything she’s owed (and trust me, in her mind, she is owed), she’d probably have like six Oscars, eleven grammys, two pulitzers and three Nobel Prizes right now. She’d be not just the biggest star on the planet, but the biggest filmmaker/musician/humanitarian/writer/designer/”artist of many things” on the planet right now.

    But we don’t, we’re just being mean because we’re jealous of/don’t appreciate her “genius.”
