Lindsay's Dad to Judge:

Don't Make Her a Statistic

7/6/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan is begging Judge Marsha Revel not to send his daughter to jail, but he's acknowledging that Lindsay's condition is desperate -- this according to a letter obtained by TMZ.

0706-lindsay-doc-launch
The letter, sent by Michael's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, asks the judge to make sure Lindsay's prescription drug use is carefully monitored.  According to Bloom, "Michael desperately wants to avoid seeing his daughter become the next Hollywood statistic."  

Bloom says Lindsay's 84 minutes in jail following her DUI conviction made L.A. County a "laughingstock of our criminal justice system."  Bloom says with the realities of jail overcrowding, jail is no place for someone like Lindsay -- for a misdemeanor probation violation.

Bloom and Michael want the judge to order Lindsay to inpatient rehab, preferably a private facility in New York that also provides family therapy.

In the event the judge does not find Lindsay in violation of her probation, Bloom is asking the judge to keep her SCRAM on.

I think she needs both rehab and jail. Leave out the latter and she'll just continue thinking she's entitled and she'll keep screwing up. She needs a dose of jail to make her straighten-up.

Lindsey L's father is an ass#$hold butt it would not be a bad thing for her to go to rehab as it might very well make Gollywood feel bad for her. LL go to rehab get out and start your career again. Lindsey is talented and certainly not the drug/alcoholic TMZ tried to make her out to be. At this point though Hollywood people would feel sorry for her and offer more work. Go Lindsey... FYI what a waste of tax payer money this freakin hearing!

Saying she's an H-wood statistic is an understatement

why bother keeping the scram on, to notify the world whens she drinks? there's obviously no penalty for Lindsay if she sets it off (as we witnessed today)

Jail's exactly what Ms Lohan needs. She has continually played fast and loose with the judge's orders. She sets a bad example and she needs be jolted into understanding that she's not above the law. This not someone who made one bad choice. She makes them over and over. Youthfulness is not an excuse. Time for her to hear the unmistakable sound of a cell door closing behnind her and being locked.
