Lindsay Lohan

Asks Morgue for Help

In Grave Legal Situation

11/1/2011 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan Ed Winter
Lindsay Lohan figures if the people from the morgue can help dead people, they can do wonders for her, and that's why she's asked them for a letter of recommendation for the very skeptical judge.

We're told Lindsay pleaded with a supervisor at the L.A. County Coroner's Office to write the letter on her behalf ... touting that she's been doing yeoman's work at corpseville.

But our sources say her request got shut down before it reached the man in charge, Ed Winter, and even if it had ... there's no way Winter would have written the letter.

As we've already reported, Lindsay will concede that she violated her probation when she goes to court tomorrow, and Judge Stephanie Sautner will almost certainly send her to jail.  We're told Lindsay is hoping for just 2 weeks behind bars, but that is probably wishful thinking.

We'll be livestreaming Wednesday's hearing at 10am PT.

A "Lindsay was lovely" report wouldn't mean much anyhow. I'm sure Lindsay got on well with the other "volunteers" haha at the morgue. Sure, Linds usually don't like non-famous folk but what are the chances that most of these people are unemployed addicts - just like her but without the paparatzzi? Heck, she probably already knew some of them. Probably swapped tips for husslin' money out of people and shoplifting. That's also why she enjoyed the "shopliftING course" so much.

HAHA is this chick serious? She worked there 4 days one of which she was late and now she wants a letter of recommendation. Her head has more air in it than the Macey Thanksgiving Day parade Snoopy float. I just hope judge Sautner revokes her probation and sentences her to a yeah and a half. That was this skank spends at least 3 months in jail and then WE DONT HAVE TO HEAR ABOUT HER! The only thing keeping her in the news are her violations. If she has another 3 years on probation that means we have another 3 years of her BS! PLEASE JUDGE SAUTNER PUT THE PUBLIC OUT OF OUR MISERY! Of course Lindsay Hohan will just pick up a new charge in no time as she is a career criminal just like her pop so I guess this is all just wishful thinking.

Where is Nicole to do her La County Jail overcrowding calculations incase Lindsay gets a year and a half just incase we all forgot from the last 100 times she has posted it?

Total BS. As long as she has done the hours and done what was asked of her at the morgue, there would be no reason for a letter and it's been reported that she has done the hours and what was asked.

Usual TMZ BS story for hits, which the always do in the days leading up to any of lindsay's hearings. There will be another tomorrow.

Okay, legal know-it-alls, tell me: if our Sweet Baby Girl gets sentenced to jail tomorrow, does she get to go free ***again*** while they appeal the sentence?

I hope they put in their report how she just tried to bribe them in giving her a glory report!!! She has not compiled with the judges order anyway. She did not complete 16 hours per week!!! That will be the first thing the judge says tomorrow!!! I do hope she gets her life turned around and think the only way she will is if people stop saying yes to her and getting her out of her messes!!!!!

Apparently she's only late 25% of the time, with a jail sentence hanging over her head......impressive.

When you go to court for violation hearings, you usually ask for letters of recommendation from people like your sponsor, your therapist and/or counselor in rehab, your employer, anywhere you have volunteered or done community service IF you have done a good job there (ie not showing up late, not causing any disruptions), teachers if you've gone back to school. BUT, Lindsay doesn't have any of these things.

Lindsay's hours at the Red Cross should not count--as that is not where she was approved to do her sentence. Had she ASKED the judge prior to just assuming she could go there then MAYBE her hours would count.
She could certainly ask the Red Cross for a letter of recommendation though.
And, BTW, her sentence at the womens shelter is HARDLY cruel and unusual punishment. I WISH you knew why that Amendment was actually enacted. It's not for selfish Lindsay Lohan who hardly cares where she's doing her community service as long as she's out in time to shop.

She could be sentenced to up to 18 months. I hope to GOD she gets sentenced to at least 12 months - meaning she'll serve at least 2-3 months then.
She REALLY needs a wake up call! NO more excuses! We don't care if you're "Really, really sorry."
You should have been that sorry LONG ago, gotten your f'n act together and met your obligations to the court. If you had - this all would have gone away LONG, LONG ago!

FINALLY people who aren't impressed with Lindsay's 'fame', who can't be sweet-talked... Lindsay has to learn to do the right thing not because it will benefit her personally - like working overtime at the morgue. It feels like finally, for the first time, she's living in the real world where fame and cupcakes don't mean a damned thing.

I believe papers were served from the Betty Ford worker? Does anyone know what's going on with that lawsuit?

She'd have her butt thrown into jail for sometime before I'd let her out and she wouldn't be given special treatment either!!!
