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

I don't know anyone with drug problems, however, Lindsey has a drug addiction problem, a disease that needs help, perhaps this time will work.
Keep working on yourself Lindsey, it might take a few tries.
Never give up hope, God Bless.

Why are people making fun of Electra grammer she is from another country. At least she is a true friend she is the only one who had the balls to stand by Lindsay.Where is Samantha Ronson???? Oh thats right she used Lindsay enough its time to move to some else to use.

Electra Avellan is just an attention ho like Lindsay. She's a NOBODY, desperate to be a somebody, but she's a HORRIBLE actress, so the only roles she lands are those given to her via NEPOTISM thanks to her ex-uncle (by marriage) Robert Rodriguez. We all know he likes to give roles to chicks he screws (see Rose McGown). Makes you wonder....

Anyway, no doubt she's thrilled to see her letter on TMZ so everyone will go look her up, and likely doesn't care crap about what happens to Lindsay.

Dear Ms. Avellan,

Shut your privileged, **** sucking, ignorant mouth. No one wants to hear your fake drivel.
Lindsay needs real people around her who will tell her to stop being a major **** up...plain and simple.

Again.......Until she is not sent to Lynwood Country Club she still won't get it.....Addiction is Addiction....Lindsay why didn't you stay in Rehab? You thought you were better off without professionals to help you.......You need to go straight to Downtown Los angeles and spend time with other Coke addictors. Will that wake you up? No, probably not but you may be scared but you gave a rats ass for all the people that did try to help you. Set 10 years Probabtion.....and remove driver's license for 10 years...then cry......

The only reason this chick wants LiHo out, is so she can have a get high partner.

What a Joke. Lilo's friends are quite the up standing people and the judge should take their poorly written words in serious consideration. NOT!!!! Sorry to say but friends and family can't keep Lindsay sober. And she has done everything possible to change, my butt.

Who is this twit of an actress? Is she really dumb enough to think she wants publicity on the coat tails of a drugged up, drunk has-been actress?

dear commenter #19:

sure, we should back her up. help her, cause shes had it so rough. uh, if this was me...i would have already done my time back in 07...and then not have broken the damn law x amount of times thereafter. where i come from, if you violate probation, its worse that many first time felonies. this %&^$* is one lucky (*^&%. how can anyone in the world feel bad for someone who has gotten away with doing whatever the hell she wants for the past 4+ years?
