And he does this every time he loses. It is unacceptable.”

Remember that plea bargain that Lindsay Lohan’s sort-of fired lawyer had set up? It would have kept Lindsay out of jail, by going to rehab. Well, the starlet doesn’t care that the prosecutor in her car crash case is willing to let her skate without spending a day in jail … because she won’t plea bargain a case in which she says she’s innocent. Presumably, the offer is still on the table but we’re told Lindsay could not be less interested. She doesn’t think she did anything wrong and will not plead to a crime she says she didn’t commit. If the case goes to trial and Lindsay is found guilty, she faces 19 months in jail. On top of that, the lying-to-cops case has triggered a probation violation in her jewelry heist case and she could get ANOTHER 245 days for that.
