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.

I really wish this waste of a human being would cease to exist. If we're all lucky, she'll OD before Tuesday and the planet can be rid of seeing her and her Long Island-trash family in the paper every day.

She's a pathetic excuse for a human, the very worst humanity has to offer and she should just die already.

So her and her mother say she doesn't have a problem. Yet her lawyer feels she should go directly to rehab. Will somebody please explain to Lohan that she is going to jail for repeatedly dodging her court hearings. She is not being punished with jail because of her addiction, which she denies. She is going to jail because she repeatedly broke the law.

How about this...........she does 90 days in rehab and then, to prove compliance, does 90 days in jail (where she will "find" Christ, write a memoir and glean tremendous support from her Hollywood bleeding hearts........who but by the grace go they)

@Kim
She missed 7 which means that there was 7 instances were she failed to attend an alcohol education class within a time period of 7 days. I think she could get it reduced for VOP
This is the exact charges she got 30 days each for

(2) 23152 B
(5) 23153 B
(7) 23103 A

(2) 23152 (b) It is unlawful for any person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle.

No wonder Shapiro's son turned to drugs, his father represents such skanks as this, not to mention OJ. He probably couldn't deal with the shame....

No wonder Shapiro's son turned to drugs.... his father is notorious for representing the dregs of Hollywood, i.e. OJ, Lohan, etc.
