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.

0905_Lindsay_Lohan_TMZ_ex_07
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.

Question - all those prescription medications she is on which the court said she could still take while wearing that contraption she had on, will she be allowed those in jail because they are prescription. If so, it defeats the purpose of everything because she is addicted to prescription medication.

Sammi,

She is so disconnected from reality!

She reminds me of a girl I know named Sydney. She won't face reality. Anything that goes wrong is "someone elses fault."

We had photos of Syd also. She refused to look back. Always an excuse.

Syd didn't have a lawyer like Holley to postpone things though. That's the main difference. Money does buy some happiness, huh?!

Sad really. She'll be a lonely woman.

Lindsay the LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOser go to jail and come out learning something. This ugly girl, who's only assets are her boobs that she likes to flash. She's not pretty and sure can't act. There's a million other beauties who could take her place in a flash.

There's an online master class at www. getthe****outoftheus. org with Professor Roman Polanski about how to leave the country when you're getting ****ed.
Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan aced the mid-term exam and are ready to take the mandatory practical exam.

If she runs, the judge will probably double or triple her sentence and order her to serve every minute of it. Wonder if the judge told her to hand over her passport?

Maybe she will head to Switzerland to visit Polanski?

@Carol
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 she 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.

If Judge Revel stands her ground and doesn't back down, she will be the only good judge in L.A. worth a damn.

It's going to be a hard reality for Lohan when she sees that she can't get away with everything by hiring expensive lawyers.

sincerely hope that she does avoid jail altogether, so that the disappointment of all you pathetic, self-loathing, celebrity obsessed losers may amuse me.
