Lindsay Lohan may dodge another jail sentence now that the judge who threatened her jail for probation violation is no longer handling her case. Her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley says the recovering addict’s case in Beverly Hills has been transfer to the LAX courthouse. Judge Fox, who told Lindsay that she would head back to jail if she committed any probation violation, is no longer involved in the case, which has been transferred to Judge Keith Schwartz, another judge who sent her to jail just recently.
Holley told our source, “Beverly Hills case has been transferred to the LAX courthouse and will, from this point forward, be handled by the judge [Schwartz] who is handling the new case.”
“It is customary for alleged probation violations to ‘trail’ – or follow behind – the new case.”
And while Lindsay is facing felony grand theft for allegedly shoplifting a $2,500 necklace, Holley is confident that there’s no there’s no reason why Schwartz should send the actress to prison.
She continued, “If the new case is meritless, as we believe it is, then there is no basis upon which to violate Ms. Lohan’s probation.”
Lindsay will appear in front of Judge Schwartz on February 23 to face her theft charge
