While Lindsay Lohan may have ducked felony cocaine charges, she was charged today with seven misdemeanors, including two counts of driving under the influence and misdemeanor possession of coke. TMZ says:
Lohan, who was busted twice since Memorial Day weekend, was charged with two counts of driving under the influence. If convicted of both, she’d face a minimum of four days in jail. If a felony were filed, Lohan could have faced several years in state prison.
TMZ goes on to explain why Lindsay only received a misdemeanor drug charge:
In Lohan’s case, the fact that she was busted twice in a short period of time actually helped her. It shows someone is struggling with an addiction problem. The fact that each time she was busted, she immediately checked into a rehab facility also helped her case. Also, her age – 21 – and the fact that her upbringing was extremely unstable – also worked in her favor.
It really says a lot when the law enforcement community agrees that Dina Lohan’s parenting causes crime. Soon we’ll find out that police officers have the right to use deadly force if they spot her within 100 yards of a school. Of course legend has it she can only be killed when her youngest son Cody forgets her morning gin and tonic. That, my friends, is when we’ll strike. Then, and only then, will the fire-crotched lass truly be free.
