Lindsay's New Lawyer:

She's Going to Jail

7/16/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has officially hired Bob Shapiro to represent her in her ongoing DUI probation case ... but only on condition that she goes to jail.

TMZ broke the story earlier this week that Shapiro was stepping in after Shawn Chapman Holley quit.  Shapiro, who repped O.J. Simpson, tells TMZ, "I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel."

Shapiro added, "Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with."  The lawyer's son died of a drug overdose in 2005.

She should get the maximum jail sentence. She like other spoiled rotten celebrity brats think she is above the law & can buy her way out of all her bad choices. The only downside is that we will have to pay for another yet celebrity jail-bird.

I am so sick of these bubble headed bleached blonds wagging their fake boobs, and money that they should even have cause their talentless to start with, the only credit I give this chick is that she was an adorable little girl, that's it, I save my symphathy for those who have nothing, and manage to stay away from drugs and drink!

The only thing lindsay needs, is to clean herself up, divorce her parents, and tak eher butt to church and let the Lord take hold of her life. Then find herself a good strong minded man,a man, not Mr. bean's daughter/son samantha ronson....that should do her very well.

Going to jail? Oh, wah. Cry us a river, build yourself a bridge and GET OVER IT. Everybody has to do their time whether they're a celebrity or not. Can't get out of everything because you have money and fame sweetheart. Life doesn't work that way, why should it work for you? Have fun in your jail cell which probably has a toilet WITH A LID! Get over yourself, Lindsay.

As a former fan and potential future fan, I still need to hear Lindsay come clean and take responsibility. I've heard the excuses from Lindsay (and Dina), and that led me to despise this immature miscreant. But, we all make mistakes. If she were to own up to her actions, be honest, and accept responsibility, I'd be 100% behind her again.

I'm going to state where Lindsay is at, AND THEN HOW TO GET OUT OF THE MESS:

1) What she's in: "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of DEATH. Proverbs 14:12

2) How to get out: "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness" and then "Casting all your care on him." You ask God what to do and cast ALL your cares about it onto him. You don't worry about it, you give it to HIM to solve. Do not try to solve it on your own. HE will take the burden of your drug addiction, your alcoholism, your mental illness,and take YOU out of it.

Important Warning:about Adderall

The combination of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take the medication more often, or take it for a longer time than prescribed by your doctor. If you take too much dextroamphetamine and amphetamine, you may find that the medication no longer controls your symptoms, you may feel a need to take large amounts of the medication, and you may experience symptoms such as rash, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, irritability, hyperactivity, and unusual changes in your personality or behavior. Overusing dextroamphetamine and amphetamine may also cause sudden death or serious heart problems such as heart attack or stroke.

Tell your doctor if you or anyone in your family drinks or has ever drunk large amounts of alcohol, uses or has ever used street drugs, or has overused prescription medications. Your doctor will probably not prescribe dextroamphetamine and amphetamine for you.

Do not stop taking dextroamphetamine and amphetamine without talking to your doctor, especially if you have overused the medication. Your doctor will probably decrease your dose gradually and monitor you carefully during this time. You may develop severe depression and extreme tiredness if you suddenly stop taking dextroamphetamine and amphetamine after overusing it

You try 2 DUI's, Cocaine in pocket, chase someone in a car, leave the scene of a accident, and see if you get out of going to jail.

Yep she needs to go directly to jail and do not collect $200. Now she is crying and worried, before she was like, they are not going to put me in jail. They would throw me in jail in a heartbeat, why do stars think they can get away with committing crimes. DUI is serious stuff nowadays and some people just don't get it.
