Holley must notify Judge Keith Schwartz by March 23rd to indicate if Lindsay will be taking the plea deal which includes jail time. If Lindsay does take the plea, she will appear in front of Judge Schwartz on March 25th. If Lindsay doesn't take the deal, she will appear in court on April 21st for her preliminary hearing.
