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.

What goes around comes around, Sharpio. You reap what you sow. How dare you advise LL to hire you. She was already sentenced. You should have told her to do her time ... then afterwards maybe get involved in her case. But.. nope. You had to reach into her pocket with your typical attorney smirk ... laughing all the way to the bank. What great advice did you give LL? Come to my wonderful sober house? Where you can smoke, come and go as you please? You don't have a rehab? You have a celebrity hotel...

Let's see, Shaprio will do an about face, and revert to type before the court hearing. He'll claim Mark Furhman planted the alcohol in Lindsay's SCRAM bracelet, which doesn't fit her (as demonstrated dramatically by Lindsay wearing latex socks over the SCRAM bracelet, and that the LAPD painted Lindsay's FU fingernail. "IF IT DOESN'T FIT, YOU MUST ACQUIT," once again.

Hey, I think it's a good sign. He's a defense attorney and what he did for OJ is why people pay him lots of money.

This is different and at least there appears now to be one grown up in Lohan's life that sees things for what they are. If she listens and starts taking things seriously, great.

Now if he could just convince her damn parents to crawl under a rock.....

What? Sharpio didn't get her to listen. THE JUDGE DID!!! He did nothing but blow smoke up her butt. LL has no other choice right now but to grab her bible... and walk into the Lynwood Jail and get on with her life. My gracious... you'd think she was the only one to ever go to jail. I know full blown junkies who go in ... get straight.. thankfully and walk out her creatures in Christ Jesus. This is not brain surgery folks. This type of stuff happens everyday. All LL is doing is over-reacting and allowing a Sharpio to rob her blind. Such foolishness over nothing. JAIL IS EASY. What part of this don't you folks understand? Doing time is a piece of cake. She will kick herself for not going in right away. The only thing about going to jail is the fear of going to jail. Once there... it really is not all what one expects. Especially at Lynwood private cells, etc. BRING YOUR BIBLE ... that is the only book you will need.

Lindsey Lohan probably wouldnt have been given anytime at all if TMZ didnt report it every time she farted. I wonder how Harvey would like it if someone posted pics of his every move 24/7?

shap's plan    

shap's plan is simple:

send lindsay to jail to make the court system happy. let her out 1 hour later and send her to immediate rehab at his facility. no brainer strategy.

i give shap credit though, as s***my as he is he does care about young people with addiction problems. helped a buddy of mine a lot.

@Ralph - are you all right? Your typos on easy words versus using big words correctly make me think you and LiHo may have a little something in common and it's not big fake boobs. Also, to the Obama haters - wrong forum AGAIN.

@Cartman - I will assist you in guarding the beautiful vodka, specifically the lychee, melon and vanilla, perhaps, all at the same time...
