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.

That's right, Rosh!
In fact just last week, the judge let me go without any CS or probation cuz he said my knifing the boss didn't rise to the level of some of that gang warfare going on in LA. Warned me he wouldn't take it so easy next time if I did a drive-by shooting. OOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I think I learned me a lesson. Do everything up to, but not including a drive-by shooting and you'll be fine.
Unless you're Lindsay Lohan, then you get put in prison for jay-walking.
ha ha, sucker!!!

It's ok. Sean has a thing against me, and since he likes conspiracy theories, he just randomly puts me in his posts in ****ty litte spots.
I'd tell him I love him, but I'd be lying.

Lindsay's having her lawyer spend this week petitioning the court to allow Lindsay's assistant Elenor to come with her. Lindsay says she needs someone to pick up the trash and sweep and such while she gets her beauty sleep. She also wants to know if there are any 4 star hotels next to the Woman's place or the morgue, cuz she doesn't do mornings very well. She needs someplace nearby that she can crash in style once she's checked in for the day.

If this theft was all planned out by Lilo and her male accomplice why is he not being charged? Sometime not right here . He either is an accomplice and they are both guilty or he is not an accomplice and her story is true.

We will just have to wait and see.
Whether she id found guilty or not it is still no reason to say such hateful things about someone we don't really know. I wouldn't want to be her with camera stuck in your face all the time.

For now she is innocent till proven guilty

Wasn't she warned that she would go to jail for breaking probation? I wish the judges would stop giving her opportunities, since clearly she isn't benefiting from them...or grateful for them for that matter.

When you very publicly and very loudly say F.U. to the justice system, the justice system has delivered a dignified but purposeful F.U. right back.
With more F.U. coming down the pike for emphasis to the point.
Are you paying attention Lindsay?

@Lohan is a trainwreck.

You are an idiot. You are a major part of the problem in our justice system. Idiots like you advocate the extensive use of judicial resources to go after some foolish celebrity.

Stop wasting tax payer money on this foolish campaign against this woman.

It is obvious that the alleged victim has been trying to make a profit from this ordeal. If anything, this should be a civil matter and NOT a criminal matter.

Now you have the District Attorney's office using up its resources to prosecute a misdemeanor! All while we have child rapist/killer, murderers, gang members, drug pushers, etc infesting local communities.

How is your community going to benefit by using up all these resources to prosecute this woman for a misdemeanor offense? At most she will end up in Jail for 30 or so days - at the expense of the tax payer.

Get your priorities straight!

Aliana = samantha Swetra = look-a-like ????

The meaning of the name Aliana is Noble & Gracious

The origin of the name Aliana is Latin
The Greek translation is "defender of mankind"

Lindsay called, she wants the drugs you stole from her back. She said she didn't loan them to you since you didn't sign for them or leave your credit card number. You also need to reemburse her for the drugs you've (so obviously) used, and send her some flowers.

1. Nicole, is what's called a "flamer" his/her job is to say ridiculous stuff to get folks fired up, so ignore that.

2. To "writenow" the big word you're searching for is "who's" no "whos" or "whose" it's the conjunction (remember that Conjunction Function) of who-is. There should be a Grammar Channel [seriously] I think it would help millions of Americans who didn't get it the first time, or at all.

3. Lastly, even in California, doesn't violating probation mean you are subject to what you'd otherwise have to serve [i.e. jail].

They already bamboozled the system and had the jewery hist reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor [disgusting] Now, if anybody knows how to work the Celebrity Justice circuit and keep celebrity criminals out the pokey, Shawn Chapman Holley is your gal. Is she doing the public a favour? No!. But the American legal system is purposely situated to be manipulated-if you can pay the price to get your "do not go to jail" card. Look at pretty boy jail break guy, and he doesn't have an ounce of contrition because the court told him he spent TWO years in prison for killing a person and was transported 8 times to literally save his azz, while the non-celebrity criminal are forced to just bend over and take it. Go in clean come out HIV/AIDS... nice [disgusting]
