I wonder if Lindsay found her on Facebook?

I'm not surprised. I thought she'd quit after Lindsay's "lost" passport BS. I'm sure she's sick of the lies, denials and drama.

Linds -

Please get a Jewish lawyer with experience - not someone who just passed the bar!!

Oh...and the same thing goes for your doctor. Tell them both EVERYTHING - THE UGLY TRUTH - as it's the only way they can prepare defense/heal you.

Shawn Chapman Holley is an excellent attorney that finally dumped that train wreck. No sense in Holley going down with the Blohan ship. Holley was fighting for Blohan to the end. How do you successfully defend a habitual liar? Judge Revel did a great job of pointing out all of the bullsh*t lies Blohan has used since 2007. And oh, everybody ain't out to get her. Some of us would love to see her take responsibility for her own shena****ns.

Great move Shawn!

Please this chick helped get OJ off for crying out loud! She couldnt get this bitch off because she is GUILTY! There is evidence everywhere that she is a liar and wasnt working like she claimed, she was out getting coked up and druck as **** at clubs instead of following her probation and going to the 86 classes that she had 4 years to finish! How did this broad even have a chance of winning? She was a slimy snake and worked every ****ing angle she could pulled **** out of her ass and it was all refuted!

Why do you all hate this young lady so much? She likes to party and she got carried away with the Hollyweird lifestyle. I feel sorry for her and I think jail and rehab may very well save her life. People need to lay off her. It could just as easily be YOU.I'm shocked at how many rude, heartless people live in this country. Leave her alone and allow her to get better. Your hateful comments do not help Lindsey at all. Go do something constructive instead of destructive.

First, Lawyers don't just quit a PAYING client. If you're buying, lawyers will do anything to help you. So, one of two things happened- Lindsay didn't pay up or Holley was fired.

Second, it is not a defense lawyers job to get a defendant off, although this can happen when they do their job. It is their job to ensure your constitutional rights are not impeded and defend you so that the prosecutor cannot prove you are guilty beyond a resonable doubt.

In Lohan's case, the facts were not disputed, even by Lindsay herself. She has 2 dui convictions, plus a plethora of other charges. She got off with probation three years ago. Since then, she has done nothing but violate the terms of her probation. It is a fact that she did not follow the judges orders, admittedly Lohan violated her probation (admits guilt) and get sentenced to jail.

Because of Holley, Lohan escaped jail for three years. Because of Holley, Lohan got only 90 days instead of 1 year.

It is amazing how fast you will lose a lawyer when you don't pay her the huge amounts she requires to baby-sit you.

So funny!

@28. "Excessive unjust sentence" ? Good one, LOL Just goes to show you can only thumb your nose (or flip your F U finger) at the justice system so many times before it bites you in the a$$... She had it coming, and considering how many chances she's had, she deserves EVERY SECOND of it...

I think Lindsay may have fired her because she was probably so mad that she didn't get her off. I don't think she resigned I think Lindsay through a issy fit and canned her

I think Lindsay has good grounds for an appeal here. Clearly in court her attorney told the Judge what she thought the Judge wanted and the Judge got all miffed with her correcting her as to what the Judge said she made very clear, next the owner of the facility also didn't understand the Judges order and made Lindsay believe she was in compliance yet the Judge tried to ignore that. Lindsay made up her missed sessions and they allowed her to make them up they gave her the ok to miss them before hand when she called in. The court screwed up and want her to pay the price. Now Lindsay gets 3 months in jail, followed by 3 months in a rehab with an additional year of random drug test. To top it off with another year of probation ending August 2011 when she would have completed her sentence this week it's just not right. This was the Courts screw ups and on top of that the court never checked up themselves and never sent any order which the facility was waiting on. I hope she appeals this and wins! Good luck Lindsay
