Lindsay Lohan's movie Just My Luck may have bombed at the box office, but girl is one of the luckiest chicks around. TMZ is reporting that the L.A. County District Attorney filed criminal charges against Lindsay this morning. The charges are seven misdemeanors -- not one felony. And, there still may be a plea bargain. In a nutshell, if LiLo gets convicted of all seven, she'll serve the maximum of four days in jail, as opposed to what could have been years.
Here's why it turned out this way. The DA says Linds' cocaine traces, in the Memorial Day weekend car crash, "were below the .05 grams required by office policy for felony filing." Sources say there were also problems even proving she was in possession of the drug. As for the second case (where she chased her former assistants' mother), another source tells TMZ that "the manner in which the cocaine was seized was questionable."
Other factors in the non-felony charges:
The fact that Lindsay's two busts were so close together actually helped her -- it shows she's battling an addiction.
She immediately checked to rehab after the second arrest
Her childhood was messed up, due to her loony parents
So it looks like Lindsay will get a reprieve. What are your thoughts on this new development? Fair or not fair? Tell me.
