Exclusive Lindsay Lohan did NOT cut a plea bargain Wednesday with prosecutors in her lying-to-cops case …our sources has learned … and right now it looks like she”s headed for trial.
We broke the story … Santa Monica and L.A. City prosecutors had a noon meeting via telephone with Lindsay”s lawyer, Mark Heller.
Sources connected with Lindsay tell our sources … prosecutors insisted Lindsay accept a significant amount of time in a residential rehab facility, but Heller wasn”t having it. We”re told prosecutors bent a little and offered somewhere around 30 days rather than the 60 they initially wanted — still Heller didn”t accept.
We”re told Heller and prosecutors have not given up, and one source connected with the talks tells our sources, “Negotiations are ongoing.”
BUT … sources say Heller and Lindsay are not in lockstep — he”s willing to accept a plea that involves counseling and possibly some sort of rehab, but Lindsay says she”s not accepting any of it because to her it sounds like “punishment for something I didn”t do.”
Bottom line … prosecutors aren”t worried if they can”t strike a deal — we”re told they”re more than willing to go to trial March 18.
Your move, LiLo.
