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

Seems like her loving family isn't doing much to help. Wasn't it earlier this week when we read that Dina told people at her bday party (about her failing the drug tests) "so what if they are true. We have great lawyers who can squash this".

Seems like Lindsay would be better off being helped by a pack of wolves..oh wait she already is surrounded by them.

Absoulutely Amazed     

Are these the same friends she got "HIGH" with, and are they writing the letter because Lindsay is the only one in the group that can afford the drugs.

Lindsay, have you taken a good, long, hard look at your photo? Your skin looks like that of someone 50+ years old. As a woman CIGARETTES and ALCOHOL are NO NO! You are living proof...and of course you can see that DRUGS are a NO! are living proof of that also. Will you be around at 50+ years old? I am beginning to wonder.

What a pathetic letter.

This letter is really quite funny.

It is nice to know that Lilo actually might have a friend that is concerned about her, though. I wonder if this girl (and the others that signed the letter) are some of her drug buddies or actually decent people?

They should throw that skank in prison also just for writing that lying, idiotic letter to the judge. She looks to be one of Lindsay's enablers!!!!

Lindsay kept these leeches high from performing coke bjs for them. Now they'll all need to do their own jaw stretching exercises.

'SHE did everything to try to stay healthy and clean" NO Electra, or she would have called HER SPONSOR, OH WAIT! She doesnt have one. Electra, did she go to an NA meeting? if you don't know what NA stands for , it stands for NARCOTICS ANONYMOUSE. Did she go to an AA meeting? that stands for ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUSE. If you want to help her Electra, instead of writing a letter to the judge, and you really want to help her maybe you should attend an ala-non meeting.
