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.

This is garbage TMZ and you know it!! you are just trying to keep the hate bandwagon rolling. Lindsay KNOWS she is going to jail. Robert Shapiro made that clear to the public and Lindsay so stop with the BS TMZ you and your non existent sources are pathetic.

Posting #22 Susan....this has been the slowest 2 weeks of my life! By the way Susan, she will not even meet you, let alone fulfill your fantasies. Cracks me up about these POOR L Lohan fans, they believe if they write supportive statements for Lohan, she will do sexual things with them. ewwwwww

A Tuesday morning slow-speed chase with Samantha Ronson at the wheel of a white bronco while Lindsay cowers in the back seat threatening to kill herself would be excellent. You know, just in case Lindsay is taking requests.

If she would have went right in jail when the judge gave her the time, she would have 2/3 of her time allready done.

I did not follow miss lohan's case. Unless she killed somebody or threatned somebody I don't see the point of jail. Now if she has a booze problem or she's a drug addict she needs a hospital or a good rehab. These stars are so spoilt. Not to mention the parents.

They SHOULD be making her serve at least HALF of her sentence for all the crap she's pulled. Besides if she were some 'normal' person and not some celeb do you really think she'd get such a reduced sentence? More than likely not. If a 'normal' person would have to serve more time for the same thing then so should Lindsay. Either way she better serve some time. It'd be such an outrage for the judge to let her go or whatever.

If this judge knows her stuff she'll make LiLo serve every one of the 90 days. No short cuts for this criminal.
