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.

Look at the bright side, she can always make a movie about a broad on deathrow and not do any research. Might een win an Oscar since she practicly lives in courts. Her luck and money is about to run out then LL can pull tricks living on the streets which I see she was born to do.
