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.

Any one want to bet L.L. will sign into a "posh" rehab center to avoid going to jail. Then after her stay at the rehab she will partition the court to vacate her jail time. If this happens, and I suspect it will..it will be just one more time the justice system has served the rich and famous. The bitch has played the system long enough. It's time to stop dancing and pay the piper... Also jail aint so bad for a 3 dollar bill...she will just be someone elses bitch.

What this evaluation will reveal is that Lindsay Lohan is a compulsive liar, that she would do anything to have or get her way, that she is spoiled beyond help, and that she hasn't got much of a future. Stop buying her "products," force her to "find herself," and if reality does't help her, who cares?

I am glad the judge did not fall for that bad acting linday tryed to pull off. I was not impressed by her fake crying in her movies and I did not like it now. I feel that the judge thought she was lying because who would give her work. The classes got in the way of her parties, not her work !!!!!!!!!

Why is she crying about 90 days? She will be out in 30. I think she got love compared to someone like me who would have been sent for at least one year. Quit crying, do your time, and be grateful. Oh yeah...she is a spoiled little girl that lives in a fantasy world.

IS THIS JUDGE REVELS WAY OF GETTING LINDSAY OFF. HONESTLY, THAT JUDGE MUST BE ON THE PAYROLL. HOW MUCH DO JUDGES GO FOR THESE DAYS FOR THE RICH AND STUPID. THIS JUDGE SHOULD BE LOOKED AT BY HER AUTHORITIES, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE SHE IS DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO HELP THE SPOILED LITTLE BITCH OFF. LINDSAY NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL. YOU REALLY DON'T NEED MUCH OF A BRAIN TO FIGURE THAT OUT!!!!!

Delmar i agree 100% what the judge imposed was outrageous.
She is either punishing her by sending her to jail or so concerned about her substance abuse that is sending her to rehab?
What is it
If Lindsay passed all the drug tests and stuck to her probation terms about being allowed to use drugs which she has a prescription then how was rehab even an option?
This judge and D.A disgust me

Why aren't people talking about the fact that her lips are full of fillers and her forehead looks meg-botoxed and she is only 24. Well, she needs some Cal trans too- get her wearing an orange vest and picking up trash on the 405 or 101!!!
