Lindsay Lohan's Legal Team is Still Hoping for a Plea Bargain
Lindsay Lohan believes she's done nothing wrong and is playing hard ball during negotiations with the prosecution.
Good ol’ Lindsay – she just isn’t slowing down!
Or maybe it’s just her past catching up with her, as it appears that she will be on trial for misdemeanors from way back when – June 2012 to be exact.
Lindsay has reportedly been offered multiple plea bargains, but she and her legal team are not willing to accept anything less than a “not guilty” verdict, according to The Los Angeles Times. The case currently under discussion is her lying to cops incident. Her attorney Mark Heller has been in talks and has reportedly been offered multiple deals, featuring rehab and/or house arrest for the troubled actress, in place of actual jail time. However, the prosecution is firm in demanding at least 90 days of rehab for Lohan, and Heller is trying to secure her less than that.

LiLo entering the LA County Court on January 30
Additionally, it remains to be seen whether Lohan will be pronounced guilty of violating her probation for jewelry theft last summer – if she is, that could additionally complicate the situation for the Liz and Dick actress. The latest news about the case is that, according to TMZ, Lohan has been offered just 90 days of house arrest. Apparently that’s still not enough though, as the star truly believes that she’s done nothing wrong. It’s getting very drawn out and boring at this point. Let’s hope the proceedings finish soon, because, however the case pans out, even LiLo should agree that everyone’s been talking about it for long enough.
