Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…Lindsay Lohan has dug herself into a deeper hole. The troubled actress could have avoided jail time by accepting a plea deal for lockdown rehab…but instead she chose to fire her lawyer who was literally on the way to the courthouse to make it happen.
According to TMZ, the Santa Monica City Attorney– who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to police after her notorious June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway– was willing to keep Lindsay out of jail if she agreed to check into “lockdown rehab” for a short period of 6 months.
Shawn Holley — the lawyer who has kept the troubled actress out of the slammer — was on her way to court Monday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to hash out the deal.
Here’s the best part… Shawn never made it to court because Lindsay fired her and hired a New York lawyer who was suspended in the ’90s from practicing law for 5 years. Smart move! Not.
Given the circumstances…Lindsay now says she wants Shawn back!
The real question — can Shawn handle working alongside Lindsay once more?
