Punk’d star; Lindsay Lohan is set to appear in court on Mar. 18 to face three misdemeanor charges stemming from a crash last June unless a plea bargain is accepted. But as time ticks away, sources close to Lohan say she and her attorney are no closer to striking a deal. In fact, Lohan refuses to accept any form of punishment at all. Take the jump for more details.
Following a crash last June, Lohan told police officers she was not driving her Porsche at the time of the accident but after a thorough investigation, officers determined she was lying. Lohan was then charged with three misdemeanors, obstructing or resisting a police officer, providing false information to a police officer, and reckless driving.
According to TMZ, prosecutors in the case originally wanted to place Lohan in a locked down rehab facility for 90 days as punishment for lying to the police and violating her probation but they have eased up a bit and are now offering to put the troubled star under 90 days house arrest.
And while Lohan’s attorney told prosecutors, she will accept a certain amount of time under house arrest, sources close to the Liz & Dick star say she’s not going for it and doesn’t plan to accept any type of punishment at all.
If the case goes to trial and Lohan is convicted, she faces months of actual jail time.
What do you think? Will Lindsay give in and accept house arrest? Or will she hold out for a trial? And if she goes to trial, do you think she will be convicted and sentenced to jail or will she get off with just another slap on the wrist? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.
