Legal experts are weighing in on Lindsay Lohan displaying the words “Fuck U” on her fingernails during her probation hearing yesterday which many believe was a direct message to the judge. If so, it could land her immediately in jail for contempt of court, according to FOX 411:
If indeed the photos are legitimate and unaltered and aimed toward the courts, “it would be a separate charge for contempt,” says New York City Public Defender Stacy Schneider. “She could have an entire extra sentence heaped on top of her current one. If the judge were angry enough, it could run even consecutively.”
Los Angeles Public Defender Greg Apt echoed Schneider’s sentiments, calling Lohan’s fingernails a “creative” way to land in contempt of court.
“The judge could hold her in direct contempt, which could be between three to five days in jail for vulgarity,” if the judge deemed the words were aimed at the court, Apt said.
Of course, let’s not kid ourselves. Lindsay will probably just get a court-appointed psychiatrist or something and never step foot in a cell. Except, oh, wait, that’s exactly what’s happening. Fuck U me in the ass. Via TMZ:
Dr. Sharma, who says he’s evaluated 1/3 of the people on California’s death row, tells TMZ he will probably spend anywhere from several hours to a half a day with Lindsay. He will evaluate her — not counsel her.
Dr. Sharma says his goal is to provide a report to the court before Lindsay goes to jail on July 20. Among other things, the Doc will make recommendations on what type of inpatient rehab facility would be appropriate for Lindsay.
The Doc says he remembers on one occasion, after Judge Revel read his evaluation, she increased the jail time for the defendant, and on another occasion she reduced it.
And on this occasion, he’ll get stabbed in the neck with a rum bottle if he doesn’t get the SCRAM bracelet off because “it burns.”
