Lindsay Lohan

Stupidly Pulls Plug

On Rehab Plea Deal

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

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.

When all the other lawyers are saying he is a menace to society, it makes you think he must be pretty bad. Lawyers usually stick together like glue. There is a type of shyster lawyer who promises their client the moon and stars and then shows up late and with no battle plan. They are just smooth talking frauds.

Maybe he talked Lindsay into thinking that he would be better than Shaun and insisted she sign some paper to fire her before he would help her. Lindsay seems like a rash person who does not think things out before saying or doing them.

A good lawyer is like a pearl in a sea of sharks. If you ever latch on to one, I would not let them go.

@Danielle Michael Lohan is out of his fvuking mind. Anyone who calls him out he attributes to being Dina Lohans relatives or friends. Even on his twitter account, people who disagree with him he says the same thing. The guy is mentally unstable and it will end badly for him because he can't control his temper or his fists.

BTW TMZ, if Shawn had been fired she would have signed off on the case yesterday but she didn't. Keep the lying ball rolling TMZ, thats what you do best.

LMAO So that's the real reason she fired her. She was terrified of going to lockdown rehab.

She's a dumb ass because she didn't just do the jail time in the first place. If she had, this would all be over. Like everybody else already said, for her six months in rehab is the same as six months in jail.

Lindsay seems more like an airhead than a criminal. She commits crimes of not thinking. I think she gets scared or carried away and just reacts or goes on her merry way without considering the consequences.

Paris Hilton seems like she got scared striaght after jail. You don't hear about her getting into trouble any more. She was just partying too hard. I think Lindsay, even if she is not drinking, just makes bad choices in life do to being sort of careeless.

She did great working at the morgue. Maybe they should sentence her to working there for a couple of years. Maybe they could even give her a little salary to help pay her bills.

I can't see her doing well in jail. Paris is kind of rough and ready and could handle the torture. Lindsay seems more like a very tender person who jumps and reacts to alot of things. Jail is very hard for someone who cares what is going on.

I keep hearing that the "Holley said she does not have to be in court" that is possible but I distincly heard the judge say, once she revoked prbation that Tater needed to be in court for this which is a PV hearing. Maybe something changed once Holley spoke to Prosecuters...e.g., she tried to make a deal to keep her out of court ??? We shall see
