Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Jail in Judge's Hands

5/17/2010 9:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley is in chambers with the judge in Lindsay Lohan's DUI probation case ... and on her way in Holley clearly telegraphed that Lindsay needs a little mercy if she's going to avoid jail.

Holley said it's up to the judge to decide if Lohan will go to jail.  It's the best Holley -- a highly-accomplished lawyer -- can really say, since Lindsay has not completed the required number of alcohol ed classes.

As for Holley's legal argument -- "Lindsay's doing her best."  That may not be good enough.

Lindsay's hearing is Thursday.  Since she has not complied with the terms of probation, she must attend court.
