Lindsay Lohan Checks Into Rehab, Robert Shapiro to Defend Her
Lindsay Lohan has a new attorney, former O.J. Simpson lawyer, Robert Shapiro. She has also checked into rehab. She's scheduled to report to jail in five days.
The rehab facility is Pickford Lofts, which was started by Shapiro. Shapiro's son Brent died of an overdose in 2005 and he also started "The Brent Shapiro Foundation" to raise drug awareness.
According to TMZ, Shapiro will try to convince Judge Marsha Revel either to eliminate or minimize her 90-day jail sentence, followed by 90 days in rehab.
I suggested the other day she may need to be weaned off the prescription drugs she is taking before she can safely do a jail sentence. Perhaps an emergency motion is in the works to at least delay the start of her prison sentence until she finishes rehab. If she does it successfully, maybe then the judge would be inclined to reduce or eliminate her jail sentence and let her continue with rehab.
