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.

videos
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.

I don't know what is more annoying. Lindsay Lohan's stupidity or TMZ for another article on "Lindsay going to jail"... How many is that in the last few days? Can't you just wait till Thursday? Is Harvey obsessed with Lindsay?



And Harvey, how about addressing those rumors you slept with Rachel Uchitel before her interview with you guys, as the other celeb news sites are reporting?

Since it is a female Judge that Lindsay pissed of then she is going to jail. Nothing like a scorned woman specialy one that is a Judge. If they don't throw her in jail then all these judges giving "sweetheart sentences"to Hollywood stars need to be thrown in jail

She really needs a little "sober up time." Lock her up. Make her face reality. It's better than a coffin.

Lindsay will get jail; she will serve 84 minutes and get out because Sheriff Lee Caca can't bear to see celebs get locked up for more.



Can someone answer these questions for me
1-If Lindsay is so broke how come she can afford to go to Cannes. Airfare and hotel cost lots of money specially since Euro is weak against the dollar.



2-What is she exactly promoting in Cannes. This new porn flick of hers doesn't even have permission from the people who own the licensing rights to names Linda Lovelace and ***********.

Even her attorney has given up on her. Instead of staying home and making up the classes in an ATTEMPT to stay out of jail, Lindsay is getting falling down drunk in France.

Dan I agree I bet they posted 20 articles on this subject.Harvey/Tmz has a obsessive disorder with certain people, they also have a huge ego and i think it got larger (hard)after the Rachel interview. You know they had to pay whore for that!

LOCK HER UP...for longer than the time it takes to process her. The only alcohol classes she has been doing are at Chateau Marmonte with a bottle of vodka in her mouth and a bag of coke up her nose. Do you think she has learned her lesson? (INSERT LAUGHTER HERE)

When I got my DUI I had to go to class just like everyone else. WTF makes her above the law? Send her to jail. May be she can get a new girlfriend while she's in there.

If Ms Lohan receives anymore mercy, she is likely to wind up dead, in my professional opinion. So many people enable her to be a chemical user, she's not likely to survive the charity. It looks to me like she requires some form of intervention. That is, one that will not only get her attention but put her in a place where she will be seperated from her drug of choice long enough to start recovering. Hopefully the judge will recognize Lohan's peril and sentence her to an in-house treatment program for six months or more. She going to need that much "tough love" to have any chance to be clean and sober.
