Lindsay Lohan to Judge

My Spiritual Advisor Can Vouch For Me!!!

Lindsay Lohan
is DESPERATE to avoid jail time ... so much so, she's enlisted the help of her spiritual advisor to make sure that happens.

Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ ... the actress is asking friends, family and her spiritual guru (yup, some people have those) to write letters on her behalf to the judge hearing her case.  Lindsay believes the letters will help prove jail is not the best option for her.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay is currently facing up to 245 days in the slammer for her recent probation violation. Or the judge has the option to send her to counseling instead.

We're told Lindsay is convinced a letter from the spiritual advisor will have the most impact. Specifically because he's been helping her since 2008 -- following her 2nd DUI arrest -- and can vouch for the fact that LiLo has benefited from counseling in the past. When she shows up.

As we previously reported, Commissioner Jane Godfrey -- who will arraign LiLo -- isn't big on jail regardless and often times chooses counseling over serving time.

A hearing is scheduled for January 25th.

Look, if Lindsay wanted to avoid jail time she should have done better in her personal life and NOT getting into trouble. It's time she learned and experienced the true lesson of her consequences--jail.

Prison Minister Marty Angelo: "How Lindsay Lohan Could Have Avoided Lock Up"

Actress Lindsay Lohan Did Not Have To Go To Jail

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 2, 2010

Prison Minister Marty Angelo offered troubled actress Lindsay Lohan two opportunties in the past three years to avoid jail time if she would agree to enter and complete a 12-month faith-based residential treatment program. Lohan was due to be released from the L.A. County Jail after serving a reduced 90-day sentence.

"This was not about me serving Lindsay Lohan's jail sentence (though I would have been willing to if the judge approved), " Angelo stated, "But bringing to light the seriousness of what I feel Lohan needed in 2007 and still needed now." Angelo continues. "Most of the programs I refer people to are free-of-charge and have upwards of an 85% proven success cure ratio. The basic secular program costs at least $25,000-$50,000 for only one-month of treatment and is lucky to have 4% success.

Angelo met up with Dr. Drew Pinsky at Larry King Live television studios after Lohan's sentencing on July 20th and they both agreed she needed at least one year of residential drug treatment to effectively deal with her many issues. However, Angelo insisted a faith-based program would be the key type of treatment and not just another stint in a secular program. "So far," Angelo remarked, "Lindsay Lohan tried three unsuccessful attempts at basic secular rehab. It is time to move onto a proven program."
