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.

I will believe a warrant is issed for Lindsey ONLY when it happens. It should have happened in NY when she didn't show but wuzzy prosecutors weren't ready to go to trial on a case that is pretty basic. Either Lindsey did or she didn't hit a well known-in the gypsy's own mind- psychic. They had the witness names and statements but weren't ready. Perfect example of why our court system is so backed up. Someone needs to hold Lindsey accountable.

The problem is that this will again give Lindsay an 'out', because if she gets thrown into jail she can blame it on the new lawyer, instead of taking responsibility. It will not help her hit rock bottom

She needs what Britt Britt had. A group of people to make her decisions for her. Why has no judge ordered something like that. She is obviously a very troubled girl. Mental disorders/issues are so damaging.

Maybe Lindsay can have her interior decorator represent her? If you saw the bravo show her decorator was called right after the accident.

Ordinarily, yeah, a warrant would be issued and she'd just post bail. But this time... 1) No expert attorney to prepare the paperwork and post within 10 min. 2) I'm not convinced she has the money, nor the collateral for a bail bondsman. (And no attorney to deal w/ the bondsman)

She thrives on this negative attention--it's her only career at this point.

The most amazing thing about this woman is that people still HIRE her for acting gigs. She lives in a fantasy world crwated by her own delusions. She is her own worst enemy. Throw her ass in jail so she can wake up from her own nightmare.
