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.

LEAVE HER THERE the reason why she's STILL having issues is she keeps getting AWAY with EVERYTHING she nearly RAN OVER A BABY last week and it's ok because shes a celebrity?!!! I MEAN really if this were ANYONE ELSE she would have still been sitting there from last time. She's making a mockery of the justice system for God's sake LEAVE HER THERE!!! BE DONE with it ALREADY!!

Poor, poor Lindsay. Her attorney screwed up by not having her invoke the Paris Hilton defense:

"Someone borrowed my urine. I didn't know it had drugs in it!"

If she gets out THAT will be the injustice. All these people around her trying to take attention away from the fact that she broke the law and has to pay for it. She is sick and obviousy can't be on her own. Because of the violence I usually don't agree with putting a person in jail if they have a drug problem but she is not even going to the general population. Whr is the tough love for this girl? The mother, the father and the lawyer definitely need to wake up. The sad thing is we are going to have to sit and watch these three for years to come after she dies. They are certainly not trying to help her stay alive.

If Lindsay's enabling friends are on this site, they should be aware they are probably being watched as well. Looks like everyone's a dealer really, Paris,Samantha, her neighbor's next door. This has turned into "Valley of the Dolls"

That's what you get when you write "F--K YOU" on your hand specifically targeted at the judge. I think it's hilarious, and she deserves every woe and hardship that comes her way.

Congrats on supreme legal moves Shawn Chapman Holley, you indeed should be commended on this move, despite what Lohans father has to say!! Miss Lohans's counsel is totally correct, there is no way that Miss Lohan should be held without bail during this time. This is a misdemeanor!!!

to 76 - NONYA BIZ - Yes and no. Lohan should be in jail until she WANTS to go to rehab. She never WANTED to rehab at all. It was always FORCED on her and that ... never works.
Sit in jail. Think. Start to reflect on how and why you got there. Accept responsibilities for your actions. THEN ... and only then should she be released not to just any rehab but to a faith-based one that actually does change people's lives... such as Teen Challeng ... over 85% success ratio compared to nill to 3% secular rehab. No brainer on which one to go to. However..... again ... Lohan has to WANT this..... not be forced into one just to get out of jail. That method NEVER works.... and she is a perfect example ... how many times?

" People must learn California-Criminal-Law B4 posting false statements.

Misdemeanors are guaranteed bail.

1) - Lohan has already been granted & released on bail with numerous conditions set for her Probation while out on bail.

2) - She violated one of her Probation conditions.

3) - Now she's charged with a Probation Violation.

4) - Probation Violations do not allow for bail.

GET IT NOW ??

For anybody besides the delusional dynamic duo of Nicole Enabler and Team Lindsay Enablers saying it's not fair and she shouldn't be held without bail for a misdemeanor, I encourage you all to read this.
