Lindsay Lohan Turns Down Plea Deal And Fires Her Lawyer

Posted on Tue Jan 15, 2013 12:50 PM PDT

lohan-legal-drama-230.jpgLindsay Lohan was scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles this morning for allegedly lying to police after crashing her Porsche last June, and even though she fired attorney Shawn Holley on Monday, Holley appeared on her behalf today and plead not guilty to the charges.

On Monday Holley was on her way to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to work on a plea deal, but before Holley set foot in the courthouse, Lohan signed her own walking papers, let Holley go and hired New York attorney Mark Heller to handle her legal woes, according to TMZ.

Lohan also reportedly rejected a plea deal that would send her to rehab, and as a result she put herself at risk of being thrown back in jail. You see, the attorney prosecuting Lohan was willing to keep her out of the slammer as long as she agreed to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months. Since Lohan rejected the deal, it was likely a bench warrant would have been issued for her arrest, but Holley saved the day today.

Holley tiptoed around the issue of whether she's still Lohan's lawyer, and since the starlet didn't appear in court and there was some confusion regarding the transition, the judge let Holley enter a plea for Lohan. TMZ reported that Heller is not licensed to practice in California and he wasn't in court on Monday or Tuesday.

A pretrial date has been scheduled for January 30th, and Lohan has been ordered to appear. Should be interesting to see what goes down at the end of the month!



Oh Lindsay...

 

X17 Poll

Will Lindsay Lohan Go Back To Jail?

Yes! And frankly, after firing her lawyer and turning down a plea deal, she deserves to go to jail!
No way! She always figures a way to weasel her way out of it.
No idea. But even if she does, I doubt she'll learn her lesson...
