The Probation Department is recommending 30 days jail time for the first failed drug test which showed a positive reading for cocaine. Judge Elden Fox has a couple of options on Friday. He could sentence Lindsay on the spot to 30 days in jail for the cocaine violation but because of overcrowding Lindsay would be released the same day.
Judge Fox's other option is to deny her bail, throw her in jail and set a hearing that would take place 30 days later. Under this scenario, Lindsay would not be released early she'd sit in jail for 30 days until her hearing. According to sources, judges do this 'all the time' when they want to make sure a defendant does the time.
