By registering an appeal against her 90-day jail sentence for a probation violation, Lohan could buy herself some extra time.
Lindsay’s lawyer only has to file a notice of appeal with the Judge, and under California law, particularly misdemeanor probation appeals, the defendant must be granted bail.
Judge Revel will be forced to give Lohan bail pending the appeal, and Lindsay wouldn’t even have to appear in front of Judge Revel again.
And now that her old attorney bailed on her, what better way to try to fuck the penal system than by hiring the man who repped O.J. Simpson in his murder trial. TMZ says:
Lindsay Lohan’s new lawyer [Stuart V. Goldberg] isn’t her new lawyer anymore … people connected with him say it’s because he wouldn’t work for free.
The new leader in the clubhouse? We hear it’s none other than O.J. Simpson’s former lawyer, Robert Shapiro.
I’m sure she ended up going with Shapiro because the Devil in the form of Al Pacino was just for a movie, and the real Satan doesn’t work pro bono. Robert Shapiro is probably the next best thing.
