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.

Not sure about CA law, but in most states a Judge can make an exception and deny bail if they feel that a defendant is a threat to themselves. That fact that LiLo has failed numerous rehabs and continues to abuse drugs (even while under court supervision) shows that she is one hit away from an overdose, and can't stop herself. That should be all the legal justification the Judge needs to keep her locked up.

It isn't about getting out early it's about the fact that she hasn't been sentenced and is stuck there.

She MUST learn. Money cannot always get you out of trouble the easy way. She needs to learn like people in the REAL must pay..realize..and hopefully..recover. She is a great actress. It would suck to have another casualty to this epidemic in Hollywood.

Because carpet-munching coke-head doesn't fit on the teleprompter.

You people have no clue do you? First off Lindsy Lohan's lawyer works FOR lindsy Lohan.
Number One: She is not an enabler, she must defend her client. She must tell her client the options that are open to her and do what the client decides. Her other opption is to not be lohans lawyer.

Number two: She is no more below the law than she is above the law meaning she should be treated like everyone else regardless of status or fame. If its uncommon for a judge deny bail of a probation violation of a misdemeanor then guess what, regardless of how screwed up the public sees her or how much visibility this case is getting, he should have offered her bail.

BLOWhan's lawyer is a good lawyer, but she's blowing smoke. There is NO automatic "must grant bail"; it's at the judge's discretion. She's doing this, just like all the silly moves she tried before, to please white oprah; that's it. BLOWhan is going to stay in jail until October 22nd.

As much caterwalling & whining as BLOWhan & her legal team are doing, things could be much worse. If BLOWhan doesn't watch it, they'll toss her smug arrogant ass into general population. She's guaranteed to get severe beatdowns from those "gen pop" chicks, along with them stealing all her stuff. She should shut her mouth, do her time, and then work on getting clean when she gets out. AND, she needs to dump her loser hangers-on crowd of coke whores, and needs to get therapy to get rid of this smug arrogant entitled attitude she has.

She's not alone. Tonight 500.000 people sleep in jail for the mere fact that they smoked a joint, inhaled a line of cocaine or consumed a pill for their personal pleasure. They didn't hurt a thing and caused no-one any nuisance. The costs of detaining them and the legal process of their cases are mindblowingly staggering.
Not just for Lyndsay but for those 499.999 others. Stop this noncence.
And her lawyer has every right to appeal. A judge who delivers his sentence right away, denying the procecutions and the defence the right to speak. Admitting that he needs more time to read the paperwork around the case indicates that he came into court today a prejudiced and biased man.

This is insane, if she was an illegal alien she would get her attorney fees paid and released. Enough is enough, she did no harm anyone but herself.

Maybe she'll stay the entire time this time!

Does anyone know who is supplying the drug

I don't think you can blame the rehab. These guys know people are COURT MANDATED TO GO TO REHAB to avoid jail AND LOHAN WAS A WASTE OF A BED.
