Lohan & Plea Deal?
May 1, 2011 by Post Team
The source, who is familiar with the criminal case of Lohan, but he was not authorized to speak publicly, said the actress wants to put the case behind it so you can focus on her career. No court date has been set for Lohan to enter the plea. She is scheduled to return to a Los Angeles court for a pretrial hearing May 11, but the actress is hoping to settle the case before that date, the source said.
In pleading not guilty, Lohan would not admit guilt, and was not immediately clear whether he would face additional sanctions. The actress has been sentenced to four months in prison for a probation violation related to the case of theft. She is free on bail. Prosecutors in February Lohan charges of felony grand theft charges that he took the necklace Kamofie & Co., a jewelry store near the house of the actress at the Venice district of Los Angeles. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner reduced the charge last week.
Authorities allege that the theft occurred about three weeks after Lohan, 24, was released from court-ordered rehabilitation in the Betty Ford Center. Lohan assistant returned the necklace to the authorities after police obtained a search warrant to retrieve the Lohan home, but before the detectives were able to carry out the search. Sautner said during an April 22 hearing that he thought Lohan’s actions were bronze, but that she believed the case warranted a serious charge, because many cases more serious charges are reduced to misdemeanors.
Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers said he thought the ruling was an “abuse of discretion” and her office may appeal, but no challenge has been filed. A little over a week, Sautner Lohan sentenced to 120 days in jail and nearly 500 hours of community service for violating terms of her probation by taking the collar. Lohan was on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case.
She was released to pursue an appeal, but has not yet submitted a formal proposal to seek reduction of sentence.
In all likelihood, Lohan would serve a tiny fraction of her sentence of four months – possibly as little as three weeks – because of overcrowding in prisons.
The source said Lohan’s intention to plead no contest was destined to do well in her statement to Jay Leno earlier this week that he wanted to take responsibility for their actions.
The plea was first reported Saturday by celebrity website TMZ. Career of the actress has been mostly stalled last year as it struggled to cope with the terms of her sentence in the case of drunk driving. Recently accepted two images in a couple of mob movies, including a biography of the famous family Gotti. She will play the wife of John Gotti Jr. in the movie “Gotti: Three Generations,” which also stars John Travolta and Joe Pesci.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Lohan said she hopes the paper will help you return to being known more as an actress in one of the pillars tabloid.
“I am excited to be back on set and clarify any misconceptions about me and show this is what I like to do,” Lohan said about their new roles.
