Lindsay Lohan really might go to jail this time. Her arraignment in LA is scheduled for this morning. However, in a move that shocked- well, pretty much everyone- Lindsay FIRED legal superstar attorney Shawn Holley yesterday afternoon. Apparently, Lindsay’s New York attorney, Mark Heller, sent Shawn a letter terminating her yesterday as Shawn was on her way to court to negotiate a plea deal to keep Lindsay out of jail by going to rehab.
Mark, who was barred from practicing law for five years in New York in the 90s, reportedly will rep Lindsay in all criminal matters. Unfortunately, he’s not in California today to appear in court on Lindsay’s behalf, and Lindsay isn’t in California to appear herself. If no one shows up this morning, Lindsay could be ordered directly to jail. TMZ says Shawn will likely appear in court since she’s still the attorney on record, but Lindsay has nixed the rehab plea deal.
Lindsay reportedly wants Shawn back as her attorney, but she signed the letter terminating her, so the letter is in effect. On top of all this, Lindsay owes Shawn $300,000 in legal fees. OUCH. You really couldn’t blame Shawn for throwing up her hands and walking away at this point! I’m guessing this will land Lindsay right in prison. What do you think?
