Lindsay Lohan‘s mom could face six months in jail if she agrees to pleads guilty to driving while intoxicated in a hit-and-run crash on Long Island, the prosecutor in her case said Wednesday.
Dina Lohan appeared in Nassau County court for a hearing at which Judge Patricia Harrington held a brief sidebar conference at the request of defense lawyer Mark Jay Heller.
Following the off-the-record discussion, Harrington told Lohan that she was adjourning the case until Feb. 27 “to investigate possible dispositions and programs that might be available to you.”
Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Wolff said she was seeking a sentence of six months in jail and five years of probation.
Lohan, who’s free without bail, ignored questions from reporters while leaving the courthouse in Mineola, but paused to ask, “Are you OK?” when a photographer tripped and fell over an orange safety cone on the sidewalk.
Her lawyer, who previously described the case as “simply is an allegation that remains to be proven by the district attorney’s office,” also declined to comment.
Earlier, Lohan, who wore a black pinstripe suit and high-heeled black boots, crossed herself upon taking a seat in the gallery, where her hands trembled as she held them in her lap.
She spoke only twice, saying “Yes” when the judge asked her to confirm her identity, and again when she promised to return to court without an official reminder.
Lohan is accused of drunkenly fleeing the scene after smashing a brand-new Mercedes-Benz into the rear end of another car at the Merrick Mall on Saturday.
The other motorist called 911 while following the “Celebrity Big Brother” contestant to her house, where she fell flat on her face in front of a cop who responded and arrested her, according to court papers.
Lohan allegedly refused to take breath and sobriety tests and was charged with felony DWI based on a 2014 conviction for driving drunk and speeding on the Northern State Parkway.
She was also slapped with five other charges, including driving while her license was suspended for failure to pay nearly $14,000 in state taxes.
