Lindsay Lohan

Outrageous Letter to Prosecutor

'We Can Fix Her'

2/26/2013 12:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0226_lindsey_lohan_mark_heller_article2
In one of the most inappropriate moves in memory ... Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer tried to get the judge in her criminal case to read a letter in which he claims he and the prosecutor are working as a team to "fix" Lindsay.

TMZ broke the story ... attorney Mark Heller attached a letter he wrote to the Santa Monica and L.A. City Attorneys to legal docs he filed with the court.  Sources connected with the prosecution tell us the letter pissed the judge off because it looks like an attempt to improperly influence the court.

In the letter, Heller writes to prosecutors Terry White and Spencer Hart ... "... we, as a team, [can] help 'fix' Lindsay Lohan." 

Heller goes on to blame Lindsay's troubles on her dysfunctional family, claiming you can't judge her "without considering the pain, torment and confusion which Lindsay has experienced and has been afflicted with."  

Heller tries to steer the prosecutor -- and realistically the judge as well -- away from jail time, saying, "Lindsay will gladly be participating in intensive psychotherapy, submitting herself to regular screenings and contributing her time to the production of public service messages."   He also offers up Lindsay to speak at schools, hospitals and other venues "where she may provide inspirational talks."

And get this ... Heller says he's exploring the creation of a Lindsay Lohan foundation that will provide a non-profit program to benefit young people. 

Heller doesn't say how it will be funded.

So Blo was supposed to start, as of February 4th, a series of PSAs, "inspirational" visits to schools, hospitals and "other venues", and establish a Lindsay Lohan Foundation.


The only mentions here in the NYC press have been of all-night clubbing, chasing D-list DJs, some shopping, more non-payment of taxes and returning a loaned dress, hacked in half. Anybody else hear otherwise?

Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer is certainly trying hard to get his client off the hook.

Lohan's attorney Mark Heller has filed a motion seeking dismissal of the actress's lying-to-cops case on grounds that she wasn't read her Miranda rights, but as TMZ reports, it doesn't sound like it's going to work.

In January, Lohan pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor charges of lying to police, reckless driving and obstructing police from performing their duties related to a car crash that took place in June 2012. Lohan allegedly lied to police when she claimed she wasn't the one driving the Porsche that crashed into another vehicle on the Pacific Coast Highway.

The "Mean Girls" actress entered that plea while she was still with her old lawyer and it looks like Lohan may regret the change in counsel, since TMZ reports that Heller is way off base in his motion to dismiss. According to the website, Heller's motion is baseless as there was no need for police to Mirandize the actress since she wasn't in their custody, and it's "perfectly legal to question people involved in a car accident without reading them their rights."

Sources told TMZ that Heller made some big mistakes when he filed the do***ents, which also included a motion to suppress evidence, a motion to continue the case and a motion to dismiss charges.

The last ditch efforts come as no surprise since the case isn't looking good for Lohan. Last week it was reported that Lohan's ex-assistant Gavin Doyle was served with a subpoena by the Los Angeles City Attorney's office earlier this month, and will have to testify in court. It was Doyle who reportedly told the cops that Lohan was driving when the car crashed, and since the two had a huge falling out in Novemeber, there is reason to believe Doyle's testimony will only hurt the actress's case.

Lohan was scheduled to return to court on March 1, and if the case goes to trial and she's found guilty, she facing up to 245 days in prison.

So in the letter he states that he has known the family for many years. Then why has he not been involved in her legal troubles before this - if only in a consulting capacity. I couldn't read the entire letter.

Lielow and Jodi Arias can go on the road together! You know since they're both only little naughty and they were forced by others to to a bad thing.Jodi wouldn't have killed the Mormon gent if he wouldn't have forced her to.And those pesky paps make Lindsay go cuckoo.

Heller is as delusional as Lindsay! I believe Harvey said (on TMZ Live) that this was just one of several letters he has sent to the court. They don’t have time to read this crap! What normal lawyer would say:


“..her newly found strength and determination …. would rather have her teeth drilled”…. Come on! If anyone took a drill to those rotted nuggets they would just crumble and disintegrate.
