Lindsay's Friend

Makes Plea to the Judge

9/24/2010 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of Lindsay Lohan's close friends -- and a co-star in the movie "Machete" -- has written a letter to Judge Elden Fox ... pleading with him to spare Lindsay from jail time.

Lindsay Lohan friend.
TMZ has obtained a letter Electra Avellan wrote for the judge. We're told Electra wrote the letter with a few other friends -- and she's trying to get the letter to Judge Fox before this morning's hearing. It reads:

Dear Judge Fox,

I am writing you in regards to Lindsay Lohan. I have had the pleasure to get to know her very well and have endured the past year with her through her highs and lows. I am desperate to get this message to you. She is working really hard to be better and has done everything possible to stay healthy and clean. We (family members and loving friends) have separated her from anyone who can harm her or deviate her from her goals which are to be a model citizen. She is aware of her impact in this world and wants to rise from this. A few days ago she had a very low moment and made a mistake that has her so terrified it is breaking my heart. I am truly concerned for her well being.

I do not intend to tell you what to do, but as a model citizen to another, I must beg you to please not send her to jail. Jail brought her down, and created so many insecurities and anxiety that we are now fighting to strip from her. She is not going to make this mistake again. She is building herself back up every second and jail will only set her back.

Please Judge Fox look at Lindsay and know that she is a woman who is struggling to get her life back on track, maybe as a day patient and a lot of wonderful community service we can have her pay back the mistake. I also think that community service can show her a different human dimension and allow her to count her blessings more often. I want to see her succeed and shine again. Please help her do it. She wants to get away from this madness. She needs help.

Thank you
Electra Avellan

You know, I think the rest of us normal, non celebrity folks should send old Judge Fox some letters too. Lets tell him how tired we are of the special treatment they dish out for famous people. And maybe the people that live in LA should be out protesting and demanding that they either treat everyone the way they treat celebs or treat celebs the way they treat US.

Electra has Lindsay's best interests in mind. Lindsay just needs help. She doesn't need anyone bashing her or making fun of her - in the media or otherwise. She needs people to support her during this very tough and very publicized time. She grew up with people watching her every move. Maybe people should just either back off or back her up.

If she was declared "misdiagnosed" for ADHD, why is she testing positive for Adderall? Furthermore, if she's not supposed to be taking it, isn't that a violation of probation? "Discrepancies in the paperwork"???? WTF? You're either dirty or you're not. Ship her to Siberia, I say!

Hilarious. And what a moron you are for falling for Lindsay's sociopathic ways. It's really a shame you got sucked in. Someday you will look back at this and see all the BS she said to you and know how much of a big steaming pile of BS it really was.

Or maybe she should stop living in denial, admit she has a problem, actually seek help in a long term program, have respect for the law and authority figures and then maybe, just maybe she might get the support you want her to get.

OMG    

So.....she is at an all time low so she repeats what got her in trouble in the first place??? ADDICTION.....plain as that. Still hanging with losers and people who can not write. How embarrasing for someone like the person above to write this letter and make it public. Were you with her when she had her all time low? "Impact in this world??? What impact? She hasn't made any kind of impact! Oh, Electra....."jail" did not bring Linday down......she brought herself down.....hellooooooo! Another thing......DRUGS BRING YOU DOWN AND BRING INSECURITIES AND ANXIETY that only SHE CAN STRIP HERSELF FROM. GEE.....HOW DUMB CAN YOU BE. ONLY LINDSAY CAN STIP HERSELF FROM THESE DEMONS AND LIFESTYLE AND S*** BAGS she continues to surround herself with.

Who in this world gets this treatment? There are tons of people in jail for weed charges. I hope that they make an example of her for the youth of America, so they can see that 3 strikes really does apply.
