After the world was offered the opportunity to watch Lindsay Lohan break down in tears after being sentenced to 90 days in jail on July 6, the public won't be able to see Lohan get handcuffed and taken into custody.
Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel has issued the following restrictions for her court room on July 20:
• Cameras must stop rolling when the judge announces she is remanded and the bailiff is instructed to take her into custody.
Shawn Chapman Holley stated earlier that the media's ability to broadcast every word uttered, note taken and fingernail expletive waved during Lohan’s sentencing highlighted her perspective that Lohan is being treated differently than others would be in similar circumstances.
“The fact is, the words [on Lohan’s nail] could barely be seen by the naked eye,” Holley said in a statement. “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.”
At this point, however, Lohan has a new attorney: Robert Shapiro is officially representing the 24-year-old star, but it doesn't look like he's going to help her get out of jail.
“I have agreed to represent Ms. Lohan on the condition that she complies with all of the terms of her probation, including a requirement of jail time that was imposed by Judge Marsha Revel," Shapiro said in a statement.
"Ms. Lohan is suffering from a disease that I am all too familiar with," Shapiro went on. "Hopefully, I can be of assistance to Ms. Lohan and Judge Revel in implementing a treatment approach recommended by medical professionals for Ms. Lohan’s long term recovery and sobriety.”
