Ever since we learned conclusively that Lindsay Lohan failed 2 of her court-ordered drug tests, crimes that would require her immediate incarceration in jail for 30 days for each infraction, we’ve been hearing about how Lindsay would most assuredly get thrown back in jail … but as the days whittled down after the arrest warrant was issued earlier this week forcing her appearance in court today, the likelihood of Lindsay‘s incarceration have dwindled down to … nothing. TMZ is reporting that their sources are telling them that Lindsay Lohan will very likely NOT get sent back to jail … not now, not later … for her 2 failed drug tests for a variety of reasons. Additionally, RadarOnline is reporting that Judge Elden Fox has ordered that today’s court hearing will NOT be televised and that NO cameras will be allowed inside the courtroom … that way, if he really does give her the opportunity to avoid serving jailtime we, the people, will not be able to watch him do so. Read on for all the gory details:
From RadarOnline: Lindsay Lohan’s moment of truth before Judge Elden Fox will be banned from television screens, RadarOnline.com has confirmed. The judge – who has been left with egg on his face, after slashing her court-ordered 90 day stint in rehab – has denied media requests to have a camera in the courtroom during Friday’s hearing, preventing a live shot of Lohan’s reaction when the ruling is handed down … The starlet’s previous judge, Marsha Revel, allowed cameras
in the court for the hearing when Lindsay was sentenced to the 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab. The cameras zoomed in on Lindsay’s hand during the hearing, showing the expletive “Fuck U” she painted on one nail. Pat Kelly, spokesperson for Los Angeles Superior Court, told RadarOnline.com: “It’s my understanding that Judge Fox has denied cameras in the courtroom for Ms. Lohan’s hearing.”
From TMZ: There was a buzz in the case that Judge Elden Fox would have Lindsay jailed tomorrow — without giving her bail — and make her sit behind bars for 30 days until the next hearing. The danger for Lindsay — she would have to serve the full 30 days and would not be released early because of jail overcrowding. But insiders tell TMZ … if Judge Fox remands Lindsay into custody he must set bail, because the underlying offenses are all misdemeanors. So here’s the way it will go down … Our sources say tomorrow’s hearing will be extremely short. There won’t be any arguments over the case. Judge Fox will schedule the formal probation violation hearing, and almost certainly remand Lindsay into custody and then set bail. But you can bet a bail bondsman will be right there in the courtroom to take care of business on the spot. So Lindsay will walk out a free woman tomorrow. When the probation violation hearing is held next month, it’s likely Judge Fox will sentence Lindsay to 30 days in jail based on the failed drug test for cocaine … But this 30-day sentence would be subject to the realities of jail overcrowding, which means Lindsay would go to jail for booking and probably be released an hour or two later.
This is just outrageous … even when the girl flagrantly breaks the law while on probation for the last time she broke the law, Lindsay manages to avoid paying for her crimes. I was worried when I learned that Judge Fox was banning cameras from his courtroom because I was worried he was planning to do something that he doesn’t want the public to see … and then came the report from TMZ and I thought, Ah ha! That’s why. Essentially, Lindsay will very soon be free once again to fail as many drug tests as she likes because, well, why not … she cannot be punished for doing so. It seems like nothing and no one can help Lindsay save herself … so it’s all up to her.
Additionally, TMZ is also reporting that L. Lo enjoyed a Last Supper of sorts with her younger siblings Michael Lohan, Jr. and Aliana Ali Lohan before her court hearing today. Lindsay grocery shopped and cooked, y’all! After the jump, check out the SHOCKING photo you simply have to see … More »
