No wonder that judge was begging Lindsay Lohan to take a plea. TMZ has gone from anticipating Lohan’s imminent jail time to admitting it may not be quite as bad as it sounded. While the judge sentenced her to 120 days in jail for violating probation with her necklace theft, the prisons in LA are so overcrowded she could well spend her stint under house arrest. Rules about time off for good behavior would still apply, so if she can handle a couple DVD marathons on the couch, she might be out of “prison” in 14 days! Maybe she’s anxious to start her community service now so the “prison stint” feels like time off from custodial work.
As a preview of her so-called punishment, Lohan will allegedly not be required for her court hearing tomorrow, with her lawyer offering the “no contest” plea instead. If LiLo winds up winning this best-case scenario, it’s hard to imagine many troubled Hollywood starlets being deterred from walking off with jewelry in the future. Sounds more like a staycation!
