Lindsay Lohan

Jailbound?

1/15/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0107_lilo_shawn_01
Lindsay Lohan may become a wanted woman today -- but not by a Hollywood studio -- by a pissed off judge.

Lindsay is scheduled to be arraigned this AM in an L.A. court for allegedly lying to cops after her car crash last June.  TMZ broke the story ... she fired her lawyer, Shawn Holley Monday and is switching to New York lawyer Mark Heller.

Now here's the problem ... Sources tell us Heller will NOT be in court, and even if he showed up he couldn't appear on her behalf because he needs to follow a procedure to go before a California judge (since he's not licensed to practice in CA) and he hasn't done that.

We're told Shawn Holley will be in court, but only to tell the judge Lindsay gave her the boot.

So without any lawyers to enter a plea on her behalf, Lindsay's only option is for her to appear and enter the plea herself.  But we're told she won't be in court.

So the judge has scheduled a hearing -- ordering Lindsay to either appear or have a lawyer appear on her behalf, and that order is about to be violated.  When that happens, judges routinely issue a bench warrant for the defendant's arrest.

Your move, Lindsay.

Boing!    

This is pretty entertaining. She fires her lawyer who would have taken care of everything and hires a shyster that's too stupid to know how to practice in California. This is the making of a Broadway play. TMZ details on how she met this shyster please. He must have blown a cloud of smoke up her azz

So when is the hearing? She has got her delay apparently if she still gets to appear in court after the hearing….to order her to appear in court.

Do I have it right?

I bet the judge will postpone this thing and give her time to get to court.

after the NY no show, I said she can't be stupid enough to miss her California appearance. Maybe I underestimated her if she is a no show. Holley can't do squat today. She's been fired.

Where is Michael Lohan today? If he were in town, i'm sure he would show up to represent her - how great would that be?

You get our hopes up, TMZ -- but it seems to never really happen.

Mark Heller seems shady. He should not have courted California business if he wasn't admitted in California, pro hac vice or otherwise. Someone should refer him to the California Bar for unauthorized practice of law.

So what you're saying is that the Judge will end up scheduling a second hearing in a month so the poor little girl can sort out her attorney issues. They're doing it on purpose to buy time. Horrible justice system for celebrities only.
