Lindsay Lohan's probation has been revoked, as you probably already know, because of three misdemeanors for lying to the police after her Pacific Coast Highway crash. With a hearing scheduled for Jan. 25, Lohan is looking for help to keep her out of jail, including her spiritual advisor, a Sunday report indicates.
What Lohan is doing is seeking help from everyone from her spiritual advisor (all right, guru) to her friends and family. She has asked them to write letters on her behalf to the judge hearing her case. Lohan thinks the letters will help keep her out of jail.
Apparently, according to the report, Lindsay Lohan feels a letter from her spiritual advisor will carry the most weight with the judge. It's unclear if that would truly be the case, but he's been advising her since 2008, and can vouch for the fact that Lohan has benefited from past counseling. That could be key.
As you know, Lohan is facing up to eight months -- or exactly 245 days -- in jail for her recent probation violation. The judge has the option to send her to counseling instead.
However, it's unclear why Lohan would be so afraid of a jail sentence. In most cases of celebrity jail sentences, the jail has released Lohan, Hilton, Richie, whoever early due to jail overcrowding. These sorts of sentences frequently result in hours -- or less -- of actual jail time.
Now, if instead Lohan were given prison time, she might actually serve a decent amount of time. Anyone remember Robert Downey, Jr. and his time in prison?
At any rate, Commissioner Jane Godfrey, who will arraign LiLo, frequently chooses counseling over serving time. A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 25, 2013.
