For those of you not keeping score at home because life’s too short, Robert Shapiro announced before the weekend that Lindsay Lohan will go to jail tomorrow and he only agreed to be her attorney if she stuck to the judge’s orders. Lindsay checked into his rehab facility on Friday, but apparently still thinks she’s going to somehow duck going to jail despite Shapiro’s decision not to file an appeal. TMZ reports:
People who are interacting with Lindsay tell TMZ she has been in obsessive denial over her surrender Tuesday, when she must begin serving a 90-day jail sentence — which will be whittled down to 22 days behind bars.
Lindsay is convinced there is still a way she can avoid jail, even though Shapiro made it clear he would only rep her if she went to the pokey.
Here’s the irony — Lindsay expects Shapiro to pull a Shawn Chapman Holley … code for getting the judge to overlook her past screwups and keep her a free woman. Holley eventually quit when Judge Marsha Revel made it clear … there were no more cards to play.
I love how Robert Shapiro was able to rationalize that someone else might have murdered Nicole Brown-Simpson yet can’t bring himself to appeal Lindsay Lohan’s jail sentence. And she’s his client. Even more surprising, I’m somehow okay with that. No, really, think about it: Which is the more likely scenario? The Juice was framed or Lindsay Lohan doesn’t need jail time to get her shit together.
I rest my case.
