Lindsay's Lawyer Scribbles Hasty Appeal

4/25/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer was so blindsided by Judge Stephanie Sautner's decision to throw Lindsay in jail Friday ... she scribbled an appeal on what looks like a stationary store legal form and jammed it through the system so her client could get out of the pokey.

TMZ obtained the form ... filed by Shawn Holley minutes after the judge sentenced Lindsay to 120 days in jail for the probation violation.

Holley's name and address is scribbled at the top of the form, as is Lindsay's name in the document.

And, the standard form didn't make sense because it says the defendant is indigent, so Holley drew a line through it.  On the other hand ...

By filing the notice of appeal, it allowed Lindsay to bail out while the appeal is pending.

Sometimes, done beats perfect.

You would think she would have been prepared for all options. What? she didn't think there was ANY chance this could happen? She's in those meetings...she's a good attorney, she must have had a feel for the way things were going.

I would have thought ANY paperwork for ANY cir c u m stance would have been filled out far in adavance of Friday.

It was the prosecutor that demanded the sentencing take place on Friday. This made the hearing run to near 4:30(when the clerk's office closes) and as you can see from this do***ent the notice of appeal was hastily filed.

Why was this a surprise to Lindsay, it certainly didn't surprise the general public. Many have long believed she already belonged in jail, has used her celebrity to avoid it, and think finally, some real justice may be served!

Hey TMZ! I love you guys - thanks for all the info! Just wanted to point out that the correct spelling in this case should be "stationery." The other term, "stationary," means remains in one place. So, she wrote her notes on stationery - ending with an "e", as in "letter."

Nicole- If you are a friend of Lindsay or "The Source" you are a really lousy friend, and maybe even the kind of friend that would load the bullets in a nice friendly game of Russian Roulette. :(

She should have just left indigent in. That is the way she is heading.

I am surprised by Shawn as well.....but she adapted and got it done. I am surprised that our little darling LiLo is still blaming everyone else. I continue to pray that she will come to the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask him into her life and repent. Satan is definitely all around her....her friends, relationships, family and her life. REPENT LiLo!

If Shawn was in any way surprised by the order made on Friday then she's as delusional as Lindsay...and whoever is paying Nicole to spout this **** on a daily basis.
