Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Files Appeal

9/24/2010 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has just filed legal papers appealing Judge Elden Fox's ruling that Lindsay should be held without bail.

Lindsay Lohan Jail Appeal
Holley claims the judge must grant bail in such a case -- and is asking Judge Patricia Schnegg, Assistant Supervising Judge for the L.A. County Criminal Courts, to vacate Fox's ruling.

Unless the ruling is overturned, Lindsay could spend the next month in jail ... waiting for the next hearing.

A rogue judge is a far greater threat to society than Lindsay Lohan. If Judge Fox disregarded the law by refusing to grant bail in a misdemeanor, Lohan should go free.

Juliette nailed it. Lindsay claimed she was ready to take responsibility for her own actions and yet clearly she refuses to do so. Just another lie from a Lohan. Doesn't Lohan mean liar in Yiddish?

The last place a person addicted to drugs should go is jail -- the drug scene in prison much worse than in society in general. Google it. Drugs are rampant.

What the rush to get her out for? Judge Fox acted properly. I bet you the Appeal will fail.

I am really somewhat confused, Lindsey had traces of cocaine in her system. Is that not possession of cocaine. Is that not a felony in the state of CA. Possession of cocaine. Why does everybody say that its a misdermeanor sic. If I had trace abounts of cocaine in a baggie would that not be a felony?

Tom, she's not in prison. She's in jail. In a private cell. In direct view of a deputy. She also has her own television set. You've spent too much time watching OZ.

Post #15 Nicole..aka Nicole Enabler

Nicole this is justice my dear.

You're only here for the paycheck,because it's well known you are here part of the Lohan Team..(PR & Crisis Management).

You are not helping this young woman,you are ruining her career even further with your dishonesty when it comes to the facts.

She's a denger to herself & society right now.

This is justice,and a dam good day for California.

From what I can tell, a Judge in LA county (and most other CA counties) can confine a defendant who is arrested for violating probation pending investigation of the alleged probation violation. It's called "no bail hold." So, it would seem that the judge in this case did nothing wrong. If this were Ms. Lohan's first offense, that would be one thing, but it's not.

Tom, she has been in rehab what 4 times and drugs are just as rampant there as in jail so let her sit like the common person would if they broke bond. She was told she would go to jail if she failed the test. She did and she is where she belongs.

And once again Nicole Enabler makes zero sense. Don't look so shocked.

Sorry Nicole Enabler, it's the Wendy's Value Menu for you for the next few weeks. Probably better get used to it too, the way Lie-ho is going you're not going to be able to pull those paychecks from Dina much longer to sit here and blindly defend Princess Lindsay the Innocent in the face of all logic and sense.

If Lindsay truly meant her tweet, then she should take responsibility and accept her consequences.

Tom,
You're an idiot. She can sit in jail for contempt, not her "misdemeanor."

Shawn is just another Lindsay enabler! Her values with regards to Lindsay's life and her client's future well being are astonishingly low, crack ho low! Even if she is right, she is wrong! Maybe the judge should find her contemptible, I certainly do now. This douchebaggery has to stop!
