Does anyone else think like we should be earning credits toward a juris doctorate for following Lindsay Lohan‘s never-ending court drama? We feel like a slightly less charming Matlock over here. According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan is not taking the plea deal she’s been offered…which means she’s taking her chances in court. Per her last trip to see Johnny Law, Lohan is required to decide on the plea deal today, as well as make a court appearance Friday to officially turn down the deal, rather than plead no contest or guilty. Sure, Lilo would automatically get up to 3 months in jail with the plea, but if she gets convicted of felony grand theft she’ll be looking at hard time. That is to say, by the time girlfriend sees the light of day again, we’ll be sitting pretty on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Regardless of what road Citizen Lohan takes, Lindsay is due back in court April 22 for a preliminary hearing with Judge Stephanie Sautner. Further complicating matters is the very real possibility that Lohan may be tossed in jail for violating probation before she even sets foot in a courtroom, Man, that makes us just want to slam our fist down on our coffee table and scream, “The whole freaking system is out of order.” In fact, we are. You just can’t hear us.
