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.

Good riddance!    

Lohan's doing her best to make a complete mockery of the law! Luckily, she has Revel as a judge, so she can flip the legal system the bird when she completely gets off scott free for stuff that regular people would have gone to jail for years for!

As Harvey said on TMZ Live the other day, Shawn Chapman Holley is a PHENOMENAL attorney and we've seen her get people off with ridiculously light sentences, or NO sentences. Her meeting with the judge in chamber today is a sign that she is striking a deal with the judge and chances are Lindsay will get off AGAIN. I've always thought this in the back of my mind since these daily "Lindsay is going to jail" posts have started.
Sickening.

Lindsey is not doing her best. She is a drunk and an addict, nothing else, nothing more. She is done. She is dead.

IT APPEARS THAT THIS A DOUBLE STANDARD OR SOMEONE IN THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM HAS A BLIND EYE OR HER PROBATION IS A JOKE AND SOMEONE IS BEING PAID UNDER THE TABLE. IF SHE IS SUPPOSE TO BE ATTENDING THESE CLASSES THEN CLEARLY SHE IS NOT SUPPOSE TO BE DRINKING NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, IN NIGHT CLUBS. HER PROBATION NEEDS TO BE PROVOKED, BECAUSE ITS CLEAR THIS IS NOT SERIOUS FOR HER, AND SHE IS TOTALLY DISRESPECTING THE JUDGE THAT GAVE THESE ORDERS AND LINSEY HAS DONE NOTHING. IF I WERE ON PROBATION I COULD NOT GET AWAY WITH HALF OF THE **** SHE IS DOING

Lindsay has had more fair chances than any other celebrity. It's time she did a loooong stint in jail.



It's not like she had anything important preventing her from attending her classes - unless you think clubbing all night is more important than looking at reality.



Nichole Richie was at her scheduled classes every single time and she pulled no theatrics at all.
Lindsay needs to be taught the lesson that she has to comply with the law like everyone else.

Lindsay is thumbing her nose at the law every time she can.
She doesn't do her classes every 7 days as ordered by the Judge and tries to make them up all at once.
She can't even be bothered to make up all the classes because she is flying all over the world.
She is still getting falling down drunk every night.



If any Judge in any other state in the USA saw that, she would get the book thrown at her. She should come down to Georgia and try that crap because it doesn't fly down here AT ALL.

Is it just me or does it seem that deep down inside LL's attorney actually wants her to go to jail?

Poor planning is not the judge's fault. Looks like jail time to me.

Cheryl O,



Yeah right, Georgia is so much better. I just looked up drunk driving statistics and George has nearly twice the per capita fatality rate as California.
