Lindsay Lohan and her lawyer, Mark Heller, will be meeting with the prosecutor handling her lying to cops case in a last-minute bid to get the best plea deal possible, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White has told Lindsay's lawyer, Mark Heller, he would be willing to meet with her before the trial is scheduled to begin on March 18. Both sides are working towards hammering out a plea deal in the case, but as of right now, the possibility still exists any deal could include her going to rehab. Lindsay strongly feels that if she is able to talk to the prosecutor he will be able to see that she doesn't need to enter a treatment facility. However, White is a respected and smart prosecutor, and he won't be influenced by Lindsay's celebrity status. He is treating her as he would any other defendant," a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Heller is working hard to hash out an attractive plea deal for his client that involves no jail time and no compulsory rehab treatment, which Lohan is adamantly opposed to, insisting she does NOT have a problem with drugs or alcohol.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, LilLo's former assistant, Gavin Doyle, is willing to step up and testify in court that his former employer was driving at the time of the crash, and NOT him.
Lohan’s latest criminal trial is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 18. Even if she’s acquitted, she could still go to jail for up to 245 days for violating probation in her past necklace theft case.
