Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has released an official statement regarding the 90-day jail sentence her client was handed on Tuesday.
“Ms. Lohan and I are extremely disappointed in the sentence handed down by Judge Revel. We believe that the penalty is far harsher than what others would have received under similar circumstances,” Holley said in the statement.
“To be punished so severely for doing so, particularly in light of the fact that she substantially complied with each of her probationary conditions, is harsh and unfair.”
And about that manicure – which Lohan has already tweeted was a joke – Holley said, “the fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye. That a courtroom camera, purportedly there to accurately chronicle the proceedings, would use a telephoto lens to zoom in as it did to Ms. Lohan's fingernail is a commentary on the entire issue.”
