Washington, July 10 (ANI): Lindsay Lohan has found a legal way to stay out of jail for six months to a year.
A source has revealed that by appealing her 90-day jail sentence for a probation violation, the actress will buy herself some time.
"Lindsay's lawyer only has to file a notice of appeal with Judge (Marsha) Revel, and under terms of California law-particularly misdemeanor probation appeals-the defendant must be granted bail," RadarOnline.com quoted a source as saying.
"Judge Revel will be forced to give Lohan bail pending the appeal, and Lilo wouldn't even have to appear in front of Judge Revel again.
"The appeal will take six months to a year to be heard. It's highly unlikely that Lohan's appeal will be successful. However, it will keep her out of jail for at least the next six months to a year," the source added.
However, Judge can order rehab programme for her, the source said,
"Judge Revel could order Lohan into the 90 day in-patient rehab program immediately," the source said. (ANI)
