Lindsay Lohan to judge: So how much could I be spending behind bars?

According to Radar Online, Lohan’s lawyer asked the judge in her grand theft case just “how much time she’ll get if she agrees to a guilty or no contest” plea.

The possible sentence was discussed in a secret meeting between Holley, Judge Stephanie Sautner and Deputy D.A. Danette Meyers last week.

If Lindsay’s case goes to trial she could automatically be in violation of probation stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest. If convicted, Lohan could face three years behind bars.

The preliminary hearing is scheduled to begin on Friday morning at the LAX Airport Courthouse. Lindsay faces grand-theft charges for allegedly stealing a necklace from a jewelry store in Los Angeles.

Last month Lindsay rejected a plea deal, insisting on her innocence.
