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.
• No one is allowed to shoot Lohan being handcuffed.
• Photos of Lohan must be restricted to when she’s at the counsel table.
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.”
I wish I could marry Lindsay and take care of her for the rest of her life
hmmm Show Pink
Why do we care? What movies has she ever made that were worth a rip? Talented? How? In what sense? I'd like to see a list of movies that she's made that have any bearing on art. I don't know if I've ever seen her in any substantial film. I seem to remember her being in a movie with Nicholas Cage, another over-rated actor.
I'd still like to butter her muffin. Nice mouth too.
The one thing you won't see Lindsay Lohan do –" take responsibilty for herself and her actions.
Lindsay: You were beautiful once...you truely were...past sentence!
I hope she does the entire 90 days in jail and 90 in rehab. That would give her 6 months of chemical free life. After that she would have to give it some thought before she returnned to her boozing and drugging. Fame or not her life has not been a picnic. No one is hooked on chemical's and just want's to live that way. Not everyone can stay clean though.
I want to see her suck it up!
I think it's great that Bob Shapiro is wanting to help Lindsay work with the Judge but I have to admit I'm confused. After losing his son to a drug overdose and creating a Foundation (Sober House in his memory) he has to know that REHAB "COME'S FIRST" "THEN" Sober House. He also should know that Sober House is not supp...osed to be a picnic or sleep over with family and friends as soon as you walk through the door. It's where you begin learning to work on after care, then how to handle living on the outside, "Baby Step's" without your addiction. I still admire Mr. Shapiro though and turning such a devastating loss and trauma into trying to help others stay alive. I just have to wonder if he's going easy on Lindsay Lohan because she's another one in the entertainment industry who gets what they want or he's trying to slowly slip her into a routine before she goes to jail or if she thinks this is going to get her out of jail (or Shapiro's going to work on getting her a shorter sentence, which is my bet.) Either way she's not off to a good start. I wish her Luck though and I REALLY wish Shapiro Luck! Although it's a conflict of interest for an Attorney to put his Client into a facility owned by him he's definitely trying to help her.
I was thinking that he probably sent her to Sober House in hopes of keeping her from messing up and having some wild partying going on before she went to jail and adding to the problems she already has. Maybe keep her out of the limelight a little bit too.
Also, maybe he is thinking of it as a way to transition to jail. It sounds like he isn't interested in her trying to get out of going to jail. If she has hired him, maybe that means she has accepted her fate too.
If she goes and doesn't make waves, don't you think she'll only serve about a third of the 90 days. That seems like what Shapiro wants for her. Recovery NOT just beating the system.
This women has power.... powerful women of 2010
OMG. Can we move on from this waste of time already?
We're waiting on you.
Let her rot.
Lindsay's mom stated that jail won't help Lindsay and that jail is for murderers and rapists. Someone should tell her that jail is not supposed to help people it is supposed to punish people for breaking the law! Lindsay broke the law and that is why she is going to jail, not for help. Rehab is for help.
Excellently stated point, Patricia. However, I doubt Mama Lohan is smart enough to realize the difference between help and punishment.
Couldn't have said it better myself!! This spoiled lilttle brat needs to learn that her actions have consequences. Games over Lyndsay. Time to pay the piper!
Most importantly, parents are to help. Unlike Lindsay's parents who have exploited her for years. Shapiro lost his son to addiction. Maybe Lindsay can fill the void and maybe Shapiro can be the adult parental figure that Lindsay has always needed. Making her go to jail is exactly the tough love kind of thing a caring parent (NOT dependant on the child's income) would do.
I wish nothing but the best for Lindsay Lohan.She is a talented,beutiful woman who no doubt will have a big comeback.
Right. One can only hope that you are being sarcastic. But when she makes "Gator babes in prison Heat" I'll be the first to buy a ticket!!
Your help, Mr. Shapiro would be to make sure she does her time & gets sober & into the right treatment to do so. Put the movies aside,the club scene aside,shopping aside,love life aside & get well. Do the right thing,Lindsey.
