Prosecutors in Lohan case aim for 245 day prison sentence

Prosecutors want Lindsay Lohan to serve 245 days in prison.

The 'Liz & Dick' actress failed to appear in court in Los Angeles on Wednesday on three charges, including lying to police about a traffic accident in the summer – where her probation was revoked and prosecutors are seeking a lengthy stay in jail for her.

A source told RadarOnline: "Prosecutors are going after Lindsay with a vengeance because of her flagrant disregard for the law. The LA City Attorney's office will present evidence to Commissioner Jane Godfrey that Lindsay has a long storied history of lying to cops. Prosecutors want Commissioner Godfrey to sentence Lindsay to 245 days behind bars for the probation violation."

The 26-year-old troubled starlet was arraigned on Wednesday on charges that she lied to police about being behind the wheel of a car when it crashed in June on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Lindsay has been on probation since being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service.

The actress - who has been arrested six times and spent 203 days in rehab - was previously said to believe that police have a "vendetta to bring her down" because they were allegedly pushing for her to be jailed for lying about the crash.

Lindsay claimed she wasn't driving her Porsche during the accident, but several eyewitnesses insisted she was behind the wheel.
