Lindsay Lohan 'refusing' to plead guilty

Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan allegedly refuses to agree to a plea deal, which would send her to rehab for six months, reports

The actress is facing a possible eight months in jail after her probation was revoked last month because she allegedly lied to police about being behind the wheel of her car during an accident on the Pacific Coast Highway in California last June.

Lindsay has now reportedly told friends she doesn't care that the prosecutor is willing to let her get off without spending a day behind bars if she pleads guilty, because she still insists she is innocent.

Strike a deal

A source told that the 26-year-old troubled starlet isn't interested in making a deal because she says she won't plead guilty to a crime she didn't commit.

However law enforcement sources claim that prosecutors have an overwhelming amount of evidence that Lindsay was driving her car during the accident, despite claiming her assistant was.

Prosecutors are said to be willing to strike a deal with the actress that would send her to rehab for six months instead of jail, if she pleads guilty to the charges.

'Not guilty'

Lindsay has already pleaded "not guilty" in court about lying to police through her lawyer Shawn Holley, but has been ordered to personally appear in court on January 30 for a formal pre-trial hearing.

If the case goes to trial and Lindsay is found guilty of lying, she faces 19 months in jail and could be sentenced to another 245 days for violating her probation.

Lindsay was put on probation after being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
