Lindsay Lohan

Thinks Jail

Isn't a Done Deal

7/19/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Shapiro can work wonders -- he was part of the team that got O.J. Simpson off -- but sources in the crazy world of Lindsay Lohan say he has not convinced her that she must surrender to a jail sentence.

People who are interacting with Lindsay tell TMZ she has been in obsessive denial over her surrender Tuesday, when she must begin serving a 90-day jail sentence -- which will be whittled down to 22 days behind bars.

Lindsay is convinced there is still a way she can avoid jail, even though Shapiro made it clear he would only rep her if she went to the pokey.

Here's the irony -- Lindsay expects Shapiro to pull a Shawn Chapman Holley ... code for getting the judge to overlook her past screwups and keep her a free woman.  Holley eventually quit when Judge Marsha Revel made it clear ... there were no more cards to play.

And, we're told, the reason it took so long to find a new lawyer is because Lindsay only wanted someone who could keep her out of jail but no credible lawyer would make that promise.

And here's the thing. From what we're hearing, there is no way in hell Judge Revel is going to back down.

You are putting words in Lindsay's mouth. Lindsay didn't say this, it's people interacting with her. Who? You don't know what she thinks, you haven't talked to her, and this article is filler and just a vehicle to repeat the same points people made in previous articles.

Buh-bye you coke whore ginge! Have fun staring at the walls in your lonely cell 23/7/22. I'd wager she'll be bawling like a baby for the single hour each day that she's let out in gp. Jail is cake compared to prison. Grow up you douche.

@lc Again, DILAUDID is a NON-FACTOR. Lindsay is not taking it. The probation report clearly states it appears 2 weeks around her oral surgery and DOES NOT APPEAR AFTER JUN 7th. Got it? No more talk about this nonfactor drug. Please people. Lindsay is sober, has been sober since May 24th at least due to the testing, and needs no drying out or sobering up period whatsoever.

Delmar, you act like you're right by Lindsay's side and know every whim and thought she has. Sorry, but I'm going to trust TMZ's sources more than I trust Delmar from the comment section.

It's 3 weeks. She should be thankful, and just psyche up for what could have been much worse......and look forward to getting out and getting some help in rehab. She really needs to change her attitude. This is FOR her, not AGAINST her. I hope it works. She's a pretty young woman.

90 days to 22? ggeezz...what a gift...if it was any of us "normal people" it would be the full 90 days...Also, watch, she'll find "god" during her stay which will shorten her time even more...maybe she should pull a "Paris"..what was that - like 3 hrs in jail?

Delmar: Well that's great... If she needs no sobering up or detoxing period, then she can go right to jail. SWEET ! ! !

And for anyone who thinks that "she's doing better, she's off drugs, and shouldn't go to jail"-What's the difference between HER and let's say a crackhead who also got sober before getting locked up? Would we be okay with saying "That's okay, you're sober now, we'll let your jail time go" ? I don't think so...Too little, too late ...

LOL, how silly! Lindsay's going to jail even as CA is planning to release 6,500 inmates because they're perpetually broke, massively in debt and their prisons are so overcrowded that they have no other choice but to release prisoners.

I won't be surprised if she tries to kill herself or takes an overdose of pills or ends up in hospital later on tonight. A last attempt to avoid jail time, even killing herself! Anything to avoid 22 days. I mean its 22 days because she didn't follow the judges orders, she should be able to do the time since she clearly was unable to do one simple thing which is NOT DRINK! I mean this girl has issues and yet doesn't seem to think she's endangering otheres? Forget about her career nobody in Hollywood will hire this girl. I'm suprised she hasn't eaten through all her savings at this point.

Actually, Wonky McValtrex did about 23 DAYS or so. Mostly spent her time faking ailments, whingeing and shedding croc tears in the infirmary.

When will Lindsay face reality? When will her family do the same? Robert Shapiro wants her to go to jail and take responsibility for all of the very bad decisions that she has made in the past.He has been through the agony of having a drug-addicted child and knows that some steps must be taken.

The reason she thinks she shouldn't go to jail is because she actually finished the "Right On" program and met all the terms of her probation such as community service and visits to a morgue.
She wasn't aware that if she didn't attend every single week she would be going to jail. There was 7 occasions were she failed to attend the program every 7 days. However the program didn't non comply her and her lawyer went to 2 progress hearings in December and February and the judge said she was in full compliance.
The progress hearing is set for May 20 she is on track etc. At the beginning of May TMZ states she didn't attend every week then the judge is given the progress report from the program. She had until July 15th to complete the program but it is clear in the report didn't attend every week.
She was given less than a week's notice she had to be at the hearing and that the new conditions imposed would be random drug testing and a scram.
Basically the judge was out to get her by imposing a SCRAM when she had been drinking freely since 08. I think that by May the judge had decided she had violated her probation and 30 days would have been a fair sentence. Instead she gets triple that and has to do rehab because the ridiculous condition imposed by the judge that until August 8th 2011 she can't consume alcohol.

Nicole -
You are as delusional as Lohan. What part of a JUDGES order that gives her THREE years to complete 85 classes on a weekly basis don't either one of you understand?! A Judges ORDER is always WRITTEN! They have to by LAW! All of the transcripts of conversations via the DA, to Judge Revel and conversations with Right On are do***ented and signed by the Judge as required by the law and system to make sure that they are 'legal'.

Right On is now being investigated for it's internal policies in regards to how they report a 'client'. Unfortunately, Lohan played a game and called in when she knew she had to go to class on a weekly basis! Going to class vs going to interviews are two different things. Lohan KNEW exactly what she was doing - not going to a class for THREE weeks - explain that? That is why Judge Revel and Attorney Chapman called Right On - verifying the ORDER that was given to Lohan three years PRIOR! There is NO EXCUSE for Lohan to be NON-COMPLIANT in three years time for 85 classes! What were those excuses and were they pertaining to her work DOUBTFUL - because she was probably out drinking and drugging the nights before so she decided not to go and have to do a UA test! That is why she didn't go!

Third and lastly, this whole thing about Lohan and you saying the Judge Revel was out to get her, BS! The reason why Judge Revel had it with Lohan is what was EXPLAINED to her at sentencing. Lohan, LIES, MANIPULATES and TRIES to get out of doing any thing other than WHAT SHE WANTS, WHEN SHE WANTS and ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY for her CRIMES! And CRIMES are what she committed! When you drive DRUNK TWO TIMES WITHIN 90 days - and then a year later get caught with a while substance on a card on in your pants and LIE about it - COME ON - You cannot make that stuff up - that is why LOHAN is going to jail! These are CRIMES NICOLE - the Judge wasn't OUT TO GET HER - Lohan did this to herself because she is an ADDICT! She uses Booze to soothe her pain and cocaine/pills to heighten the pleasure! She is not so UNIQUE that going to JAIL does not pertain to her! SHE IS A CRIMINAL with a record for committing these crimes!! Judge Revel had enough! Defending a criminal is a hard thing to do, and when you stack the chips against yourself, any lawyer in the world will tell you, straight up, the chances of you NOT going to jail are slim to NONE! Lohan played her attorney and a game with her THREE YEAR sentence and LOST! Now she has to pay for her CRIMES in a way only Judge Revel could get her attention - JAIL! So stop defending Lohan, because you and no attorney in the world is going to buy the BS you are spouting off here! It just doesn't fit and nor work! You should have been Lohans attorney, and see what kind of results you could have gotten her - probably not any better than Shawn Holly Chapman.

The more you come out here to DEFEND Lohan, just makes you look as pathetic as Lohan! NO ONE is buying your lame attempts at defending Lohan! She is going to jail for her CRIMES - plain and simple!

Oh and in any state the first DUI is Bench Probation with classes/Second DUI time in JAIL and more classes/Possession of a controlled substance 30-90 days in jail if it is your first offense!

This is exactly what Lindsay needs, a REALITY CHECK. I like her and want her get well but she's in deep denial. I think she needs jail, rehab 24 hours for months, and then constant drug and alcohol checks. Lindsay we love you, please let them help. I miss your movies!
