Lindsay Lohan

Criminal Record

Creates 'Issues' For New Movie

3/28/2012 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0110-lindsay-lohan-getty-ex-1
Lindsay Lohan has just learned another lesson as to why crime doesn't pay ... because she's having to jump through hoops to get a Canadian work permit to shoot a movie that could jump start her career.

Lindsay has been cast as Liz Taylor in the Lifetime movie, "Liz and Dick," which will be shot in Toronto.   Problem is -- Lindsay has 2 DUIs and a theft conviction on her record, and Canada doesn't much like convicted criminals earning cash in Canuck country -- then again, they like money.

So, there is a very complicated process that Lindsay must follow to get a work permit.

Lindsay is in court tomorrow, where Judge Stephanie Sautner is expected to take Lindsay off probation for her Beverly Hills DUI case.  The judge is also expected to change Lindsay's status in the jewelry heist case, from formal probation to informal -- meaning she won't have to report to her probation officer or appear in court, as long as she doesn't break the law.

We're told Lindsay's lawyer is filling out the maze of paperwork required to get the work permit, and the results of tomorrow's hearing will make it easier.  It's a pretty sure bet Canada will give Lindsay the right to shoot the movie.

STEP UP!! Contact your Canadian government and let them know you don't want criminal drug-addicted repeated-drunk-driving multi-rehab-failed violent serial-lying convicted grand thief on your soil. Never underestimate the Power of the Pissed-off Poster.

A Lifetime movie? Are they nuts? Elizabeth must be spinning in her grave. Wonder why her family hasn't put a stop to this casting disaster?

Keith Richards still gets grief from Canada after 34 years for a heroin-possession charge involving smack purchased on Canadian turf from a Canadian resident. Linds has a lot of bribing to do.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

A lawyer maybe assisting Blohans assistant with the paperwork but its NOT SCH, she's a criminal defense lawyer not an immigration lawyer. SCH knows about as much about immigration laws as you and I do.

The US has the same laws against allowing criminals into that country, as many Canadians, Brits, French, etc. discover at the airport when a 15-year-old DUI or 'disturbing the peace' charge comes up on the American immigration agent's computer.

The paperwork is not that hard to get done, but it has to be done in advance, you can't just file for an exemption at the airport, it takes weeks (on both sides of the Canada-US border).

BARRED ENTRY TO CANADA! Canadian Border Services announced today that Lindsay has a better chance at starring in a porn version of Mother Teressa in India and Bollywood than getting into Canada to do anything, particularly film work, eh? “People with convictions, addictions, DUI’s and behavior that endanger public safety are not welcome, especially people who are lower than pond s***!” he LINDSAY said. Sorry Lindsay?
In a related story, India Border Services replied “We have had Leprosy, Lindsay is not welcome here either. She is worse than the plague, eh? Even Calcutta has no use for sluts like her!”
NEWS UPDATE! PERMIT DENIED!

The Truth    

F you guys... Have you tried to "travel" to the US with a DUI? Can't get in. You americans think you are so special. Remember you need a finger print from any other country than canada to enter the US.

What TMZ didn't tell you is that DUI in Canada is a very serious offense (felony) as is theft. To say that Canadians don't like convicted criminals earning cash in their country is inaccurate at best. Anyone with a DUI or felony conviction in the US who attempts to cross into Canada will be stopped at the border and detained. A criminal is considered 'rehabilitated' if they have not had a conviction in ten years AFTER being released from probation.
