Lindsay Lohan

I'm Keeping My Lawyer

The Media Lies!!!

Lindsay Lohan
doesn't care that the judge in her criminal case and the media have called her lawyer incompetent ... she's sticking with him. 

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... she's angry that the media is painting Mark Heller as a nincompoop.   She says, "It's all lies."

What's more ... Lindsay doesn't care that Judge James Dabney also called Heller incompetent to practice in California.  In fact, the judge was brutally honest ... to the point he said if Lindsay keeps Heller, he'll order her to court for the next hearing to explain why she would be waiving her right to a lawyer who knows what he's doing.

As we first reported ... Michael Lohan reached out to his daughter and offered to pay for a new lawyer, but she turned him down flat.

Lindsay has 12 days to change her mind, because her criminal trial kicks off on the 18th.  If Heller screws up, Lindsay could end up in the pokey for months.

jail for a few weeks would be better and cheaper than a lifetime probation and lifetime rehab court ordered life.She is ready to get all this over and behind her and do alittle cell time in order too.She is making her own decissions again and thats a good sign.Sheens can also advise you as thye know the court systems all to well

Ok, Lilo really needs to go to jail for a little while. Rehab did no good and neither has probation.

Duh    

Why does it matter? The State of California has some kind of Molly effect when it comes to her. They think she is soft, funny,innocent, and smart. Seriously, do the Judges in California roll? Are they really just that stupid?

yo h8turds! judge james dabney ain't gonna be the judge on 18th, he said he won't be trial judge. even if he was, he calls it like it is, he would be fair, he already did lilo a favor and he knows he HAS to be fair. 2 judges have already been reprimanded fro bein UNFAIR to lilo.

Is Lyndsay so out of it that she didn't "read, hear, duduce" that her lawyer is totatlly in competant in California law? I think what will happen is that they will just happen to find, a Cali lawyer, who wants to make a name for himself, and....will show up at the very last moment.
For what he'll be arriving for....I don't know. How many charges does she have against her, and on how many of them is she being charged.
WOW....in Canada you would only have to do one or two of her firsts mistakes, not even counting when she lied about driving and smashing up a another vehicle, on her way to work.
