Lindsay Psychiatrist Could Influence Sentence

7/7/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A prominent psychiatrist could actually hold the key to Lindsay Lohan's jail cell, TMZ has learned.

Lindsay Lohan Crying
Judge Marsha Revel appointed Dr. Kaushal Sharma to evaluate Lindsay, and then make recommendations to the court.  Dr. Sharma told TMZ he has been appointed by Judge Revel on various cases a number of times, and at least twice his evaluation caused the judge to change her sentence.

Dr. Sharma, who says he's evaluated 1/3 of the people on California's death row, tells TMZ he will probably spend anywhere from several hours to a half a day with Lindsay.  He will evaluate her -- not counsel her.

Dr. Sharma says his goal is to provide a report to the court before Lindsay goes to jail on July 20.  Among other things, the Doc will make recommendations on what type of inpatient rehab facility would be appropriate for Lindsay.

The Doc says he remembers on one occasion, after Judge Revel read his evaluation, she increased the jail time for the defendant, and on another occasion she reduced it.

Dr. Sharma does not know when he will interview Lindsay.

As for his knowledge of the case, Dr. Sharma says following these stories is not his thing.  But he and his wife sometimes watch TMZ during dinner.  We go well with meat loaf.

I have yet to hear anyone who can say why she shouldn't go to rehab FIRST and then jail. If a crook had his leg torn off during a high speed police chase, would you throw the crook in jail, or would you take him to the hospital first?

She deserves jail. But she needs rehab first. If she is a heavy boozer or drug addict she needs to go to rehab, or she has a very good chance of hurting herself.

Here's why....

She's already been 3 times.....NOTHING. She's in complete denial & jail just might bring her into the world that MOST OF US SANE PEOPLE CURRENTLY LIVE IN. A world where 'shopping' doesn't necessarily come before 'mopping the floor' which hopefully they'll introduce her to life where 'yeah, someone has to mop the damn floor' if you understand what I mean. She is totally detached from reality & needs to understand that there are RULES that all of us have to live by FIRST.

Also....she needs some time to REFLECT UPON HER CURRENT STATE OF AFFAIRS which is quite frankly, pathetic. Her life is totally out of control She needs some time to DETOX & jail will provide adequate time for THAT so she can actually manage to absorb the tools that rehab gives one in order to actually live a meaningful life IN RECOVERY.

Jail will reduce her to a world of 'bare basic necessities' where she will be left without her usual tools with which she manages to avoid dealing with reality & give her a better chance at busting that WORLD OF DENIAL she's currently residing in. It's called 'HITTING BOTTOM' & for an addict, it's sometimes totally necessary in order to get sober & getting sober is only THE FIRST STEP IN 'RECOVERY'. They are not the same thing at all.

If there is a legitimate concern that she will harm herself than that should be monitored. "Neither" it is irresponsible to tell anyone or even suggest that suicide is the better option. Ms. Lohan need to learn from her mistakes, be rehabilitated, and to get actual help. Hopefully if she embraces that she can heal and move forward as others have.

personally i think she got a fair sentence, im in no way a lilo fan but I do hope this finally makes her wake up to the fact she needs help.

Also the whole going crazy over the fact she's getting an evaluation and it'll prob lead her to not going to jail: didnt the judge say she wanted her evaluated to see if her prescription meds are doing harm to her health - or was that a different doctors evaluation she was talking about?

Even if the Fyou was for the paps. Who is their right mind would do such a thing when going to court? This is not time to be blaming the paps. They are only doing their jobs. She is the one with the bad behavior and breaking the law. It is not the paps fault. She leads them around like the piped piper... and sometimes hates it but it seem like most of the time she likes it. However, what does it lead to? It would be different if she was promoting a movie, book or cd. She is promoting nothing but an out of control party lifestyle and thinks she can get away with it without paying a price. The only Fyou she should be holding up is to herself in the mirror. Because she did basically that.

She painted her nails with light pink or white over an obvious 4thof July/red, white and blue. Just wasn't in the mood to remove and repaint. I'll say it again, the f-you on her nail was for TMZ cameras. Her left nail. Not for the judge....she didn't hate the judge that bad yet. She was getting her bracelet off, and having a b'day party....the f-you was for the paps.

Sounds like something a MIDDLE-SCHOOLER would do instead of a 23 or 24 yr old. Tacky & shows a total lack of respect for a court room. Her behavior is completely juvenile & ridiculous & her lawyer should have smacked her upside her head before letting her walk into a courtroom like THAT:(

one of three things can happen: 1, she does time and moves on with a normal life. 2, feels like becoming a hard core bad ass or 3, gets depressed to the point she ends her life. i feel this is too late. should have happened years ago.

Who is kidding who. She goes to the dentist and get the most powerful drugs while she is wearing a monitor. What kind of crap is that. So she had the really had stuff to keep her off the booze just while wearing the monitor. This girl is not going to do any time...her lawyers will come up with some crap. I think its a disgrace how these celeb get away with everything and the little guy gets hit twice as hard ... especially if they are people of color.

i support the judges decision but no matter what she should do jail time. jail time does help people look at robert downey jr. she has disrespected the law and court system and us, the people for way to long. she needs this as a wake up call and hopefully it will wake her up otherwise one morning she won't wake up. i hope the judge does not let her off she needs to understand just because your famous doesn't mean your above the law.

i thought she got 30 days each for 3 different violations and they were to run consecutively.

Which would mean she would have to serve 60 days before the third sentence starts, then she could let out early if they wanted to?

This is the only sensible thing this unprofessional, biased judge did yesterday. Hopefully, this is an objective professional that will make a thorough analysis of Lindsay Lohan's pyschological health. Jail may only aggravate and not help in any way. This is a pathetic world we are living in right now. The gossip world is out of control, Lindsay's prescriptions should not be publicized, that is none of the public's business. TMZ and radar are slimeball bottom-feeding vampires with your "sources" and distortions. I'm disgusted with what I saw of Marsha Revel, she was not professional and did not render a sentence that is in the best interest of society or one that will help Lindsay Lohan in a time where she was clearly improving. This sets her back a lot. Thanks for nothing, "Judge" Revel.

I wonder just how much money ALL OF US TAX-PAYERS are going to pay to have this Dr. spend 1/2 a day with this train wreck of a girl? She needs to be in jail so she can get clean. YES, lock her up alone in a 4x8 cell, so she can 'KICK' !!! Thats what she needs, not a dr & not a rehab, that will let her go out shopping & jog in the hills.
GEEZ....why is it everytime these spoiled rich idiots get into trouble & start CRYING & SNIVLING, WE have to pay???
