Lohan Hires O.j. Simpson's Lawyer

LINDSAY LOHAN has reportedly hired top Hollywood lawyer ROBERT SHAPIRO to help her avoid prison on Tuesday (20Jul10).
The Mean Girls star's new legal counsel is experienced criminal defence attorney Shapiro, who successfully defended actor O.J. Simpson at his 1994 murder trial.
According to TMZ.com, Shapiro will not appeal the actress' upcoming 90-day prison sentence - instead he'll urge Judge Marsha Revel to either eliminate or minimise jail by putting Lohan in rehab.
Shapiro, whose son died of a drug overdose in 2005, wants Lohan to spend time in a live-in treatment centre.
The 24 year old's long-serving lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley resigned just days after the star was sentenced to prison time for breaking the terms of her probation from a 2007 DUI arrest by failing to attend alcohol education classes.
Lohan is due to surrender to authorities on Tuesday.
