Lindsay Lohan Declines Plea Deal, Possibly Heading To Trial

"Liz & Dick" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

 

Lindsay Lohan’s not taking any plea deal from prosecutors. The original plea deal included at least 30 days in rehab and her lawyer,  Mark Heller declined that deal, but negotiations are still going on. Heller is open to some sort of counseling and maybe rehab, but…Lindsay is totally against it.

Lindsay Lohan did NOT cut a plea bargain Wednesday with prosecutors in her lying-to-cops case …TMZ 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 TMZ … 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 TMZ, “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.
