Negotiations aren't progressing...
Radar Online reports that prosecutors in Lindsay Lohan's criminal case are demanding that any plea deal include rehab or jail time, and she is refusing both options.
A source said: "The Los Angeles City Attorney is requiring either jail time or rehab for Lindsay as part of any plea deal in her lying to cops case. She would have to go to rehab for at least 60 days, and the jail time would be at least 45 days. Lindsay refuses to accept ANY deal that has any type of confinement as part of the deal. Someone with her criminal history is lucky to be offered such a great deal, but she just doesn't seem to understand that. Barring any last shred of common sense on Lindsay's part, this case is going to trial."
The plea deal would also require community service and public service announcements. If she were sentenced to 45 days in jail, she would only serve eleven of them because of overcrowding. Her trial will begin on Monday, March 18. If she's acquitted, she could still go to jail for up to 245 days because of violating probation in her past necklace theft case.
Her attorney, Mark Heller, is trying to work out a plea deal that involves no jail time or rehab, which Lohan is opposed to. She claims she does not have a problem with drugs or alcohol.
A source added: "Lindsay is ready to go to trial. She has always wanted to face a jury of her peers, and feels confident she will be acquitted. Lindsay has nothing to hide."
The case against her has multiple witnesses, including the passenger in her car, ready to testify that she was driving when she hit a cement truck on the Pacific Coast Highway last summer.
