Lindsay could luck out...
Lindsay Lohan's latest legal issue could end up with her not even needing to go to rehab. Radar Online reports that Lindsay's lawyer Mark Heller is working on a plea deal that would not include any time in rehab.
"A plea deal could be reached without Lindsay being forced to go into treatment," said a source close to the situation. "Since she wasn't arrested or charged with crimes related to drugs or alcohol a plea deal requiring her to go to rehab isn't the only way a resolution can be reached. There are other possibilities including the options of Lohan undergoing extensive counseling and lengthy community service. Talks between Mark Heller and the City Attorney's office are ongoing and both sides are hopeful a plea deal can be reached soon that is mutually agreeable."
Heller has been a train wreck for Lindsay so far and has angered the judge with multiple errors in the case, which is in relation to charges that she lied to police after her car accident over the summer while she was filming Liz & Dick. Lindsay said she wasn't driving but multiple witnesses have said she was behind the wheel. A pretrial hearing is set for Friday and the source says that "it's possible a plea deal could be reached by then."
