As Lindsay Lohan trial looms, plea deal talks stall again

By Daniel S Levine,

In nine days, Lindsay Lohan will likely be in court and on trial for her alleged misdemeanors and probation violation. Although prosecutors have offered her a variety of watered-down deals in place of actual jail-time, it is becoming increasingly clear that Lohan is not going to budge. If her attorney Mark Heller and prosecutors can’t reach a plea deal in her lying-to-cops case, the trial will start on March 18 as scheduled.

Lohan reportedly turned down a deal last month, and, according to , The Los Angeles Times, negotiations between Heller and Santa Barbara city prosecutor Terry White have stalled once again. LA city attorneys were refusing to take a deal that didn’t include at least 90 days of rehab.

However, according to TMZ, Lohan has now been given an option to take 90 days of house arrest. Heller and Lohan will reportedly discuss house arrest as an option, but only less than 90 days. According to TMZ, Lohan is apparently still convinced that she didn’t do anything wrong, and is refusing to accept any punishment.

Lohan is being charged with three misdemeanors for lying to police, reckless driving and willfully resisting or obstructing an officer from duty in connection with her June 2012 car accident. It will also be decided if she violated her probation for her jewelry theft case.
