Lindsay Lohan

Dismiss My Criminal Case

I Wasn't Mirandized!

Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer has filed a motion seeking dismissal of Lindsay's lying-to-cops case on grounds she wasn't read her Miranda rights but he's WAY off base.

Attorney Mark Heller isn't getting started off on the right foot.  First of all, there was NO need to Mirandize Lindsay since she was not in custody and it's perfectly legal to question people involved in a car accident without reading them their rights.   Lindsay's problem is that she lied when she said she wasn't driving the Porsche that crashed last June on Pacific Coast Highway.

Sources connected to the case tell us Heller made some huge mistakes in filing the docs -- maybe the biggest was that he attached a letter to the prosecutor touting Lindsay -- he's not supposed to try and influence judges outside of court so it's a huge no-no.  We're told the letter has been purged from his legal docs.

Heller calls his papers a "Bill of Particulars" -- bizarre and almost unheard of in California courts -- which include a motion to suppress evidence, a motion to continue the case and a motion to dismiss charges.

Hey SAM, did you really just say something about eating bacon? Didn't you also say you were an observant jew?

C'mon Sam, you better start writing these things down, you making way too many mistakes.

On the other hand, I guess it's to be expected given your excessive drinking an advanced age.

Charlie Sheen is paid regardless whether all the 90 episodes are actually shot or not. That's his contract. Sheen is a savvy businessman.


What happened to Lohan being so disgusted about Sheens mouth (how funny is that coming from her) she tried to bail on SM5 in addition to it poking too much fun of her.


Hey Lohan will say and do and use anyone she can. Everybody knows that.

Lindsay Lohan to play Charlie Sheen's love interest on 'Anger Management'
~
??????? How can this be???? Lindsay didn't even want to kiss Charlie in Scary Movie 5. Now she is going to play his Love interest? Was it because of his teeth that she didn't want to kiss him? If it was then why doesn't she take off those fake vaneers and take a good long hard look at her own narley jagged brittle broken teeth. Also try not to get a whiff of her ashtray breath. Who would want to kiss that? I hope Charlie embarresses her and refuses to kiss her on camera. I hope they catch every little humiliating moment for all to see. Let her see how it feels.

Good riddance!    

Usually it's the lawyer that has the fool for a client and this is certainly true and a complete understatement, but when it's a fool for a client and a fool for a lawyer, that's breaking into the full on legal self-reaming territory!

Dumb bitch-ho! That light at the end of the tunnel is another train coming full speed!

If this was a valid legal maneuver wouldn't Shawn Holley have thought of it while she was still representing Bitcho?

I think of My Cousin Heller like a bomb making sleeper agent.


Will it go off or be a dud?


Will anybody see it coming?

Someone needs to hand this guy the Rules of Civil Procedure. He's already doing his client more harm than good.

Two things. A judge could care less if you have work. Lots of defendants screw up but have an actual 40 hour work week. The courts don't care. That's your problem. You might get work release but that's if you have a clean record. Lindsay, not so much. Secondly, she's always played herself. She's a way overrated actor. Mean Girls, self. Ugly Betty, only wanted to play self and got fired, SM5 cameo, self, this Anger Management thing (allegedly), self. We saw how she can act in Machette and Liz and Dick. Not worth shty. So overrated. And she can't sing or drive either.

She's been arrested so many times & she has been in court so many times, there's no need to read her rights anymore!

I don't watch Anger Management (I did once and I was so embarrassed for Selma Blair I never watched it again) BUT, I agree with the poster who said it's just Sheen playing himlsef and that Lindsay will play herself (so to speak).


The really interesting thing will be what her "problem" is.....if she gets a diagnosis. Will they go real just to turn the knife (she wouldn't get it anyway) or will they give her a princess problem?

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I'm really curious who is paying for My Cousin Heller's flight from NY. We KNOW Blohan aint payin. Is he really that desperate for camera time that he'd pay his own way?

What a silly circus. Whether or not she is convicted of the lying etc., she will be convicted of probation violation. She will not be sentenced to more than 120 days for the lying etc, and if convicted will serve the time concurrently with her PV sentence so this is all to buy time...what a waste. Get in there and get it over with - CRAP YOU WILL BE OUT WITHIN A FEW MONTHS SHEESH
