Heller Needs Help! Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer Asked to Bring Legal Aid to Court

They've tried to make her go to rehab but she said no, no, no. Lindsay Lohan was offered rehab over jail recently in court, but Lohan turned the offer down, as the Sun Times reports. It seems she's taken Amy Winehouse's lyrics to heart. We truly hope she changes her mind though because continuing in Winehouse's footsteps can only lead to a tragic end, and no one wants to see Lohan join the 27 club. 

Her litigious history is getting messier and messier, not least because of the change of lawyer. Here's a very quick breakdown: a few years ago she was arrested and convicted of having stolen some jewellery. She went to prison briefly but was released quickly due to overcrowding. She has been on probation ever since. However, after a car crash last summer which the prosecution are claiming she lied to the police about, she's had her probation called into question and revoked. She's now set to be in court on March 18th for a trial. However, back in January she was also forced to change her lawyer and now has Mark Heller, a New York attorney, representing her... in California, despite not knowing or understanding the different court procedures. See, messy! 

To make matters worse the judge in the courtroom last week told Lindsay and Heller that they would need another legal representative to help Heller because, as TMZ say he's "incompetent to practice law in California and said Lindsay either has to get another lawyer who knows what he's doing or she has to come into court and waive her right to a competent California lawyer."

One ray of sunshine on the horizon is Charlie Sheen who has offered more help to Lindsay. "I have a kinship with somebody [Lindsay] who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not," he said. "She can continue to hang out with her dress shredding club buddies, or turn to me for some advice from a guy who's been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey."
