TMZ: Lindsay Lohan is probably not going to jail for more than a few hours

We’ve heard stories that Lindsay Lohan could be sent to jail immediately for 30 days without bail when she finally has a hearing today to determine her fate for failing at least two drug tests while on probation. TMZ claims that since Lindsay’s latest offenses were misdemeanors, though, she’ll probably get bail and be out within a few hours. Assuming she is then sentenced to 30 days for a failed drug test, it’s TMZ’s analysis that she’ll also be out again without a few hours due to overcrowding when she finally starts serving that term. So essentially Lindsay will be allowed to continue to behave like an entitled diva and face very little consequences both for her two DUIs and for her complete failure to meet the court’s meager requirements following those DUIs.

There was a buzz in the case that Judge Elden Fox would have Lindsay jailed tomorrow — without giving her bail — and make her sit behind bars for 30 days until the next hearing. The danger for Lindsay — she would have to serve the full 30 days and would not be released early because of jail overcrowding.

But insiders tell TMZ … if Judge Fox remands Lindsay into custody he must set bail, because the underlying offenses are all misdemeanors.

So here’s the way it will go down … Our sources say tomorrow’s hearing will be extremely short. There won’t be any arguments over the case. Judge Fox will schedule the formal probation violation hearing, and almost certainly remand Lindsay into custody and then set bail. But you can bet a bail bondsman will be right there in the courtroom to take care of business on the spot. So Lindsay will walk out a free woman tomorrow.

When the probation violation hearing is held next month, it’s likely Judge Fox will sentence Lindsay to 30 days in jail based on the failed drug test for cocaine. As we first reported, the Probation Department will not recommend jail time for the second failed drug test because of an ambiguity in the paperwork.

But this 30-day sentence would be subject to the realities of jail overcrowding, which means Lindsay would go to jail for booking and probably be released an hour or two later.

You know, I hope TMZ is wrong. It’s possible that they’re just reporting spin from Lindsay’s camp. It sounds just like the “nothing will ever happen to Lindsay” delusion that her mom has been operating under for years now despite the fact that her dear 24 year-old “child” is already an ex con. TMZ could also be trying to compete with their rival, Radar Online, by completely dismissing their earlier story that Lindsay would be serving hard time. We’ll have to see what happens. This should all start to seem routine for Lindsay – mess up royally, get handed consequences, dismiss their importance and claim that everything is fine, rinse and repeat.

    Yeah, that sounds about right. :/

    When someone, anyone, skates through life like this I hate to admit it, but I look forward to seeing them fall. And I think LL has even further to fall.

  2. Innocent says:

    This isn’t spin TMZ are completely correct.
    As she is or was on probation for misdemeanors and the Judge revoked her probation the Judge MUST set bail and if/when she meets it allow her to remain free until the formal violation of probation hearing.
    It’s like what happened in May

    Lindsay needs to either comply and get off probation or refuse probation and just serve the time and get out in a few weeks because of overcrowding.

  3. DD says:

    If jails are suffering from overcrowding, perhaps they can give an early release to a poor peasant schmuck with a similar offense and make Lindsay do her time instead. So if I go to California and commit a similar crime, would they give a similar excuse for me too so that I only serve a day because of overcrowding? I wonder. I’m still holding out hope for this girl… but I’m thinking if she faces some harder consequences she’ll be more likely to reform.

  4. malachais says:

    her shoes are awesome, anyway

    I would think that, regardless of overcrowding, she would have to serve her time, especially for a probation violation. If this is not the case, and LA County allows people to waltz out of jail “due to overcrowding” especially when a person has been sentenced due to a probation violation, then that is a seriously f*cked up place to live. Maybe that is just for celebrities, which is even more f*cked up but money talks.

  5. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    She needs serious help, not this half assed shit they keep dishing out. Send her to jail or rehab, WHATEVER, just help the girl and keep her there for as long as you initially sentence her to.

  6. Gabby says:

    Can someone explain to me, please, how TWO FAILED drug tests are considered misdemeanors for someone sentenced to jail and rehab for DUIs????? Isnt she doing exacly the same thing????

  7. Marie says:

    When did it become a “pants optional” world? I am so sick of seeing this lot lizard and her freaking leggings, but at least it hides her genital warts. Well shit, now I lost my appetite, no breakfast for me.

  8. Anaya says:

    TMZ always first presents the worst case scenario which hardly ever comes to be. Notice how unconcerned or stressed Lindsay looks in the newest photos of her? There’s a reason for that, of course.

    This is all still a game for her and those who are supposedly helping her. Beating the system is all they’re doing just so she can “work” which will fill the pockets of her mom, the other manager Larry and the business managers, lawyers, etc, etc. Helping her become drug and alcohol free is the last thing on any of their minds.

  9. Innocent says:

    This is an example of how badly July 6th went for Lindsay she isn’t even on probation for the drug charges anymore.
    She met all the requirements and her plea deal said they would be dismissed if she didn’t reoffend and they were dismissed in August by the new Judge. She is only on probation for the 2 DUIS and reckless driving.

  10. MrsOdie2 says:

    You see, what should happen is…
    Lindsay Lohan…

    Oh, my. Don’t care anymore. I have no opinion on this matter.

  11. dorothy says:

    Thats alright…they’ll get her next month when she fails drug test again, and again, and again…….

  12. Jazz says:

    Just lock her up already!! If there’s overcrowding, then let someone else out so she can stay for the full sentence!

  13. Ruby Red Lips says:

    @ Anaya – agreed

  14. xxodettexx says:

    yup, rinse and repeat indeed

    now… hot guy fridays! i need it, just getting over a 2 week old cold and i already know LaLoca is getting off easy, sooooo HOT GUY FRIDAYS!!!!


  15. Lardy Chops says:

    The ‘rinse and repeat cycle’ so aptly described by CB has become her day job. It’s what she does now: party, get papped, appear in court, go to jail, get released from jail, party…

    Since she’s never going to make another movie she needs a day job. Right?

  16. Sassy says:

    What the hell is the point of drug testing if there are no consequences? Why waste the time?

    And why is it she gets early release for “overcrowding” when she’s held separately from the general population?

    I’ve said it before – Lindsay is an entitled asshole.

  17. annaloo says:

    You know– I would not want to see Hollywood censored for violence or sex or anything else people accuse it of…It’s guilty of it, but it is entertainment, and how one entertains oneself is one’s own choice.


    When it comes to the law, THEY NEED TO ENFORCE IT!!

    The message sent out over and over and over from this mess of a girl is that you can f*ck up several times, and there’s no real punishment. That reality, I think, is far more effective than any movie plot some writer could come up with.

    Seriously now, what’s the use of having laws… what’s the point of following them? Isn’t that the message now comingout of this walking disaster of a person?

  18. BethL says:

    I don’t know why people keep blaming Lindsay for being released. It’s not as if she’s getting special treatment. This happens with everybody. It’s a CA problem. Everytime a celebrity is released experts always report celebrities’ sentences are no less than a non-celebrities’. They really need to change the system since sentences of months can easily become a few days or even a few hours.

  19. Mandy says:

    Can’t we just throw the little coke-monkey in San Quentin and forget about her?

  20. wunderkindt says:

    The jail needs to give an early release to someone else who’s already been sitting in the jail for awhile, and then stick Lindsay in there for the full 30 days!

  21. MarenGermany says:

    Well, the good thing about it:
    By now her career is OFFICIALLY over. I guess there is a point when you just dont believe somebody anymore.
    Nobody believes Lindsay anymore. Nobody will wanna see her movies anymore.
    Each and every time she gets out even though she fucked up again, the public will like her less and less.
    I am at a point where I´m not even angry anymore (even if she walks away a free bitch today).
    She is going to die, and nobody will care, except for her fuck of a mother who I can literally see pointing the finger at everyone but herself.
    For her its just: “We beat the meanie meanie public/law system who are SOOOO wrong about everything.”
    Nice to see your daughter walking around the clubs tomorrow, again.
    Great win, Dina!
    Ps.: Dont forget to powder your nose.

  22. Crash2GO2 says:

    Yeah – about the only thing I care about it is where she is when I have to drive through LA…

  23. bellaluna says:

    @ malachais – If you think Blohan’s case is bad, you should see all the truly violent people being released early from prison due to over-crowding. It is absolutely horrifying!

  24. original kate says:

    jail, no jail…i don’t care anymore. at this point i don’t think lindsay cares anymore either.

  25. connie says:

    those shoes are horrendous!

  26. chasingadalia says:

    TMZ: She’s off to jail with no bail! 😀

  27. Madisyn says:

    @Innocent #2

    Boy, you must feel like an idiot. You said “the Judge MUST set bail”. Well guess what, the Judge does NOT have to set bail and did not! Hallelujah!
