Lindsay Lohan

No Early Check-In

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

Sources close to Lindsay Lohan tell TMZ the actress is '"freaked out" about going to jail and will NOT begin her 90-day jail sentence one minute before she's required to ... even though early check-in would avoid a media circus.

In the past, jail-bound stars like Paris Hilton have successfully managed to avoid a major media crush by arriving to the detention center hours -- and sometimes days -- before their scheduled check-in. 

We're told Lohan -- who's ordered to turn herself in on Tuesday -- will "wait to the last minute possible" before showing up to jail ... because she, "has no desire at all to go to jail early."

Lindsay is also in legal limbo.  Bob Shapiro has not filed legal documents in Judge Marsha Revel's court saying he's the new lawyer, and Shawn Chapman Holley has quit.

Damn she would be better going in on a Friday night as that is when the jail fills up for the weekend so better chance of overcrowding. Also she should check in as near as possible to midnight as it still counts as a day.
This sentnece is shocking

*** SHE IS LUCKY THAT SHE GOT TO WAIT A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO GET HER AFFAIRS IN ORDER BEFORE SHE GOES IN. SHE DESERVES JAIL.

NO SPECIAL TREATMENT FOR LOHAN - GO STRAIGHT TO JAIL LIKE THE REST OF US WOULD - GOOD FOR JUDGE REVEL!

LASTLY, BOB SHAPIRO DISCREDITS HIMSELF ATTACHING HIMSELF TO A PERSON WHO HAS SUCH A SERIOUS PERSONALITY DISORDER - NO WONDER HE WON'T REP HER - SHE DID THE CRIME AND ALMOST KILLED SOMEONE WITH HER CAR AND NOW SHE SHOULD DO THE TIME! ***

She won't enter early because she WANTS the media there. Even negative media attention is better than no media attention. When your career is in the toilet but you can keep your name in the headlines anyways it does not matter if it is good or bad to Lindsay!!

My thoughts exactly. she will go WHEN there is the appropriate number of media available to do***ent it all so that it can be parlayed into $$$ during and after her visit. She's playing the courts, media and public perfectly

Does this mean we're stuck with Michael & Dina's publicity stunts during her incarceration?

I agree with #3....she is NOTHING but a media whore and wouldn't think of showing up a minute before all the cameras were ready for their money shot of her....I would LOVE IT if no one showed up to even take her pic.....then she'd have a serious meltdown right at the door of the jail...classic!!

Still guessing it's 50/50 odds that she'll actually go to jail on the 20th; between the legalese involved in switching lawyers, the appeal that will be filed, and her impending nervous breakdown w/subsequent 'hospitalization'.

She should have been dragged straight to jail from sentencing like every other person, not given 2 weeks to try and weasel out of it.

Remember this is the same jail and same jailers that let Paris Hilton lay in her cell without any meaningful intervention until her doctors and the jail doctors saying that her prognosis is dire. Then to cover the brutal and cruel way they treated her they release her to home confinement. When she was sent back to jail by an equally cruel judge she required six days of hospitalization.
This is Russian roulette with a fully loaded gun! The taxpayers of California will be paying for any treatment and care she needs if the same mental breakdown that Paris suffered happens to her.
She has absolutely earned jail time and deserves a sentence but until there is some reasonable evaluation of her that results in a finding that she is capable of being jailed without being destroyed this is a disaster waiting to happen.
A 5150 hold with psychological evaluation and detoxification is a far safer course of action by the court.
She has apparently avoided the court ordered evaluation and this could well subject her to a longer sentence when she surrenders on Tuesday, again her antics may earn her even more time behind bars and such an increase is again earned!
I do not feel sorry for her or wish any reduction in her sentence but I do have sympathy for anyone being jailed when there is such a large body of proof that they are mentally ill.

If she would have gone immediately, she would have been more than half through already. Good grief, I wouldn't be looking forward to jail either, but it will be about 3 weeks, not 30 years. She acts like she's facing a firing squad. Come on Lindsay, just use it as one of "life's experiences" that you can bring to a part someday. Just get it over with.
