Lindsay Lohan’s lying-to-cops case could actually be heading to trial in a few weeks after she and her lawyer reportedly rejected a plea deal that would have kept her out of jail.
As we reported yesterday, TMZ’s sources said that the LA City Attorney was going to offer Lohan and attorney Mark Heller a plea deal that would have involved just 60 days in rehab, community service and attending AA meetings. That was even less time in rehab than they originally planned to offer and they met with Heller in the afternoon. They were also ready to let her do community service in New York.
Now, TMZ is reporting that Heller turned the offer down even after prosecutors cut Lohan’s rehab time again to 30 days.
A source for TMZ said that “Negotiations are ongoing,” so there is still a chance that Lohan and prosecutors could reach a deal before March 18.
However, Lohan and Heller don’t agree either. Heller is willing to accept some rehab time, but Lohan believes that if she did that, she’d be admitting to wrongdoing. She still believes that she did nothing wrong after her June car crash when she told police she wasn’t behind the wheel. Witnesses had reportedly said that she was, but Lohan said an assistant was driving.
Lohan is being charged with misdemeanors for lying to police. A court date is set for tomorrow, but she doesn’t have to attend. She will have to be there on March 18.
