Lindsay Lohan May Get A Plea Deal In Car-Crash Case
The troubled starlet may wind up going to rehab, instead.
UPDATE 2:25 PM PST: Lohan's attorney, Mark Heller, has spoken with E! News about how his client has had "an epiphany."
The attorney filed a motion on Friday that outlined details of the steps that Lohan will take to turn her life around including "psychotherapy sessions and performing public service." There's also interest from Lohan to partake in PSAs that address "issues like driving under the influence and domestic violence."
Heller also said that she is open to "going to a hospital setting and working with young girls and trying to cheer them up and encourage them to have confidence that their health will improve and have hope" or "going to schools and giving inspirational speeches and encouraging young people to make the right choices."
Lindsay Lohan may avoid jailtime in the ongoing case in which she is accused of lying to police officers after she crashed her Black porsche into a garbage truck last June.
Sources tell TMZ the Santa Monica City Attorney is prepared to offer Lohan a plea deal in which she would be required to attend 60 days in a residential rehab.
Also part of the deal: more AA meetings, as well as community service hours, which she would reportedly be allowed to complete in New York City under close supervision.
Meanwhile, in other developments, TMZ is reporting that alcohol was found inside Lohan's Porsche at the time of the accident. Her breath also smelled like alcohol, according to sources; however, police did not perform a breathalizer test.
Lohan was officially charged with giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer in the performance of his duty and reckless driving in November.
In December, Lohan's probation -- which she was put on after she was accused of stealing a necklace from a Los Angeles-area jeweler -- was revoked by Commissioner Jane Godfrey.
Her trial is set for March 18.
