Lindsay Lohan

Stupidly Pulls Plug

On Rehab Plea Deal

1/15/2013 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0114_lindsay_lohan_2_gettyLindsay Lohan COULD have avoided almost certain jail time by accepting a plea deal for lockdown rehab -- that is, if she didn't fire her lawyer who was literally on the way to the courthouse to make it happen.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney -- who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway -- was willing to keep Lindsay out of jail, PROVIDED she agree to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months.

Sources say ... Shawn Holley -- the lawyer who has kept Lindsay out of jail -- was on her way to court Monday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to hash out the deal. What's more, Lindsay also faces jail time for a probation violation in the jewelry heist case because she allegedly lied to cops after the crash. We're told the judge could have agreed to end both cases if Lindsay checked into rehab.

But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay signed her walking papers and hired a New York lawyer who was suspended in the '90s from practicing law for 5 years.

Lindsay now says she wants Shawn back. The question -- does Shawn have the stomach for another helping of Lindsay? 

There's a hearing scheduled for 8:30 AM PT today. Shawn will probably show up because she's still counsel of record. If she stays on the case, prosecutors could present the deal to her, but Lindsay is making it all very difficult.

6 months lock down rehab is a very good deal especially when the person really deserves 6 months jail time.

What a frickin artard. She's completely nuts. What acts like this? Even Bipolar doesn't swing this much. It's worse than that. She has totally mastered narcissism, y'all. On to conquering the guilt free blow job!

Lohan knew her court date in California was the 15th of January. Hell she had 6-7 weeks of knowing a head of time Court Date January 15th.


Lohan had no intension of showing up for court.

She fired her attorney Shawn Holley on the 14th and that's suppose to cover her not showing up on the 15th court date in Calfornia. Lohan looking to stall and firing Holley is another stall tactic.

Prosecutors, Shawn Holley fired, Lindsay Lohans intensional no show. Up to the judge.

Sounds like TMZ is desperately milking this for all it's worth. Six months of rehab is certainly more then Lindsay can afford, so I think it's a bunch of BS.

Ohhh.......That's the real criminal rehab.....called a "jail bed" in a locked facility. And if you screw up they kick you out and you have to finish your time in jail.

I'm sure Shawn was throwing a party over this. SCH is a very talented lawyer and the last thing she needs is a client like Lohan giving her the run around and making her look like a fool. I'm sure she'd have dumped Lilo a long time ago if she could.

I dont know what is more impressive: Shawn Holley's legal skill or Lindsay Lohan's stupidity. This was the best deal since Seward bought Alaska, Jefferson bought Louisiana, or the colonists bought Manhattan from the Indians. If Lindsay doesn't take this deal then she deserves to do every second in jail. S-T-U-P-I-D!!!

Lindsay do not worry even if Shawn pulls off the Rehab for you tomorrow you always have NY to send you to jail for punching a woman.
