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.

Jesus she was at a hospital and was not in custody. I've been in auto accidents and answered questions and never had to have my miranda rights read to me. What a lawyer. Is that plea still even on the table?

I really hope Heller partys on St. Patricks day and is all hungover in court on the 18th. He will make a bigger ass out of himself. Gotta love the entertainment that comes from everything around Lindsay.

I can't look at a picture of that man without thinking that looks like a big fck'n rat. Beedy eyes, long nose ( just put wiskers you'll see).
Also the nasty protruding lower teeth ready to help you bite the dust.

He just comes across as a low life scammer. Any one can call themselves a lawyer but this is an embarrassment. A sneaky looking little rat that helps the prosecution without noticing he is doing so. Kind of like Lindsay........they'll both go down in flames...................as the firecrotch slowly goes out and the ashes of a once promising career get flushed (WHAT? you thought I was going to say blown away with the wind). Flushed has a better tone to it. Can't deny that sound. It's called..... THE END!

Hey, back to her stiffing the state of California for more money with her not paying taxes. With all her shyt, and her not caring, if she lives in NY now, why pay California taxes? Can she be busted living in NY for not paying her former residence taxes?

How many people have you read about that are in HUGE trouble that you go on to read about that they should hire Lindsay's lawyer? Whoever is her lawyer she continues to get away with it, waste tax $$, alledgely doesn't even pay said lawyers,laughs,parties. Come on. Are none of her judges on the ball enough to realize there is a jury of a gazzillian that can see through all the lies?

Dina should start looking for hotel rooms now up and down the coast to ensure they have a room this time. How do you reserve a room w/o a credit card? And if there was a card, you know the limit is nowhere near high enough to cover the 'incidentals" (i.e. damages and mini bar) this trash leaves in their wake.

The most impressive part of this guy's law degree is the 9 dollar frame it's sitting in.
