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.

The judge could be planning to throw the book at Lindsay, and he is making a show about her lawyer so he can use him as an excuse. I don't know what Heller did that was so bad already. He asked to make a deal with prosecution, and they are mad that he influenced the court.


He asked to have the case dismissed, and it was denied. Isn't that what a lawyer does, file motions asking for things? If these courts don't want to play the game, why are they even there? Is it all about back room deals for those already in the system.


This really reminds me of My Cousin Vinny. No one thought the funny little NY lawyer could do anything, and he won the case. Maybe the same thing will happen here, or if not, maybe there will be an appeal filed.


I think they have to prove that the two witnesses that Lindsay was not driving are not reliable. The first witness already changed her story and the second one was a truck driver who was hit from behind.


I think Lindsay said she had been drinking, so if she had her assistant with her, why wouldn't she have the assistant drive? The question really is why would the assistant crash into the back of a truck for no reason though.


Maybe they are setting Lindsay up, or maybe Lindsay is scared and lying. The burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt is on the prosecution. If Heller can cast a reasonable doubt that it was Lindsay, she gets to walk.

Good riddance!    

That's right, Crackie! Stay the course. You've obviously never taken the advice from any of these mean old judges, so why start now? Focus on the important things, like getting you duck lips properly pontooned and keep hanging out in bars to show that alcohol is not a problem for you. We fully support you on this!

Yup    

And it's another stop on the lindsay whorehan "circling the toilet" tour 2013. This just proves what an incredible dumbass she is, as she makes another in the long list of terrible choices. Thinking back, I can't think of a choice she's made in the past 5 years that's been good; everything's been the worst choice possible. Personally, I hope her idiot attorney (who she's keeping ONLY because he's not charging her) screws up & she ends up in jail for many months. The thought of the general population chicks beating her down daily, intimidating her & stealing her stuff is too hilarious to pass up...

Why in the world is lying to cops a crime anyway? You are not under oath when being questioned by police. You only have to swear to tell the whole truth in a court of law. You get charged with contempt of court if you don't.


On the ohter hand, cops lie all the time. They play good cop, bad cop and try to trip you up into confessing to things or even sounding like you did so they can charge you. They beat you up so it leaves no marks, hold you for hours, deny you food and phone calls, and they think they are going to get some poor dizzy girl locked up for lying to them? GIVE ME A BREAK.

It doesn't matter what she does, she'll go to jail for two hours then be released due to overcrowding. The system is a joke.

"It's all lies" is her blanket statement for anything. Great! Keep him Lindz. Don't start listening to the Judge or anybody now.

I hope the order for her to appear on the 18th is being typed up right now. I'd also like to call dibs on the pink purse but I'm sure somebody has already beat me to it. Shux.
