Why Lindsay Lohan Can Avoid Jail Time Again

Lindsay Lohan probably won’t go to jail tomorrow. Booo. I was looking forward to a new mugshot from the starlet. Her past mugshots were fabulous.

Anyways, sources at the Probation Department have told TMZ that they think Lindsay has done most of what she's required to do and they are actually going to side with her and NOT recommend that she be thrown in jail.

What? She's done nothing of what she's supposed to do. She's supposed to show up to her community service obligations for at least four hours at a time, which she has not done and she's also supposed to go to her therapy sessions once a week, which she has also NOT done.

According to the TMZ sources, the Probation Department will issue a written report to the judge that Lindsay is in "substantial compliance" with the terms of her probation.

So missing 9 appointments with the Downtown Women's Center, getting kicked out of community service, and leaving her service obligations after only being there for 1 hour apparently is "substantial" compliance if you are on probation for theft. Cool, America. Way to interpret the law.

Even though Lindsay was kicked out of the Downtown Women's Center, the probation department is gonna let that slide because she has a year to complete her 360 hours of community service.

The only thing Lindsay has actually finished is her shoplifting course. How ridiculous is something called a "shoplifting class?" What does the syllabus consist of? Shoplifting 101: If you see something you like...pay for it with money. Class dismissed.

Also, Lindsay's shrink is on her side too! The Probation Department has contacted Lindsay's therapist who says that Lindsay has been to therapy sessions, "regularly." How much did Lindsay Lohan pay her to say that? Huh? Besides, Judge Sautner said Lindsay had to go to therapy weekly, but the shrink didn't address that at all. Lindsay has reportedly not been going to therapy once a week like she was ordered to because she claims she's always out of the country.

Judge Sautner made it pretty clear that if Lindsay wasn't 100% in compliance that she would go to jail. But it seems like she's gonna get another free pass. At least if she went to jail it would give Lindsay something to do.

The Gotti film that was supposed to be her comeback has been put on hold indefinitely. Her teeth will probably all be gone before the end of 2011. She was kicked out of two parties during NY Fashion Week. What's left for her to do? I guess there's always a rooftop party going on somewhere.

Her probationary hearing is tomorrow at 10am.
