It could be a Good Friday for Lindsay Lohan today as the actress heads back into court today, and according to some, she could be dodging a felony bullet. There is a way for Lindsay to avoid jail time for her felony charges if her lawyer uses this magic number.

If her lawyer uses a law that’s commonly used to reduce felony charges to a misdemeanor, called California Penal Code: Section 17B, Lindsay could avoid jail time altogether. The law reduces the felony charges to a misdemeanor if the offense is minor and the defendant isn’t a hardened criminal with a long record.

Though she’s had run ins with the law in the past, her DUI charges don’t make her a serious criminal and the charge of stealing a necklace is apparently no big deal. If her lawyer is successful in reducing the charges, Lindsay will escape jail and the whole case will be settled as a probation violation.

    “Misdemeanor” (she used to be a neighbor that used to live on my street in Toronto many years ago. HA! HA!)
    Well, if she does get off, let’s hope she doesn’t do anything stupid again or is that wishful thinking?
