Robert Shapiro

Will Rep Lindsay Lohan

7/14/2010 8:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned famed lawyer Robert Shapiro will represent Lindsay Lohan in her jail saga, but we're told Shapiro's plan is not to appeal Lindsay's 90-day jail sentence.

Sources say Shapiro, who was part of the team that successfully repped O.J. Simpson, will try to convince Judge Marsha Revel to put Lindsay in a rehab facility and either eliminate or minimize jail.

Shapiro, whose son died of a drug overdose in 2005, has a lot of experience with rehab facilities and we're told he has a specific plan for Lindsay, and a specific place in mind -- a live-in rehab facility in which Shapiro is involved.  Shapiro created a foundation to help people deal with drug and alcohol problems, named after his son -- The Brent Shapiro Foundation.

Shapiro was hired in a nick of time.  Lindsay is supposed to turn herself in on Tuesday.

Then every other person in America in her predicament should get state-sponsored rehab. What a place this has become! I hope the judge says "NO!"

E entertainment is airing a special this Thursday entitled "Lindsay Lohan - Road To Jail" I have a great idea:

Lets get a group together and rent a cottage (the most expensive, of course) at the Chateau Marmont. We can have the concierge send out for lots of cocaine and Dilaudids (we don't have to actually use any, just have it lying around for the appropriate atmosphere - we can even use fake cocaine - save money for champagne).

After a few tequila shots - and Redbull, we can stare enthusiastically at the big screen and lament poor Lindsay's "unfair" treatment by the nasty damn Court system.

Who's with me? 20 attendees x $100.00 ea ought to pay for it. We could invite "SamRo" to deejay the event, and hell, we could even take up a collection to put money on LL's comissary account - for necessary items such as Cup-O-Noodles and Slim Jims.

Lindsay needs to just suck it up and go do the time. She more than likely won't serve all 90 days in jail. She needs to go though.

Interesting. By all appearances, though, Lindsay has not admitted she has a problem or needs help. My take on Judge Revel is that she won't buy it and will stick to her sentence. You can't underestimate Atty Shapiro, either. This is interesting again.

This is her best chance of avoiding or reducing her jail sentence.
Hopefully it works out and she takes this chance.

Shapiro will be looking just at the legal angle, as he should be. He might just keep her out of jail. However, LL needs some serious PR help. If she does no jail time and continues to shirk responsibility, the public will hate her more than ever. She needs to own up to the lies and the lack of responsibility for her actions publicly, or it will be next to impossible for her to regain any fanbase of consequence.

Nicole, post 10# I highly doubt the judge will give lindsay a chance to avoid jail or reduce jail sentence. lindsay is the one is making too much excuses and missed nine alochol rehab classes!

90 days at a tough rehab like Betty Ford would be more useful for her than jail, although it would be special treatment. She has a probation violation on two DUIs with enhancements. An average person would do time for that. Even Kiefer Sutherland did about 23 days.
