Lindsay Lohan’s Lawyer ‘Extremely Disappointed’

The attorney for Lindsay Lohan is speaking out against the judge's decision to send the actress to jail for 90 days and rehab for an additional 90 days.

In a statement to ET, attorney Shawn Chapman Holley says: "Ms. Lohan and I are extremely disappointed in the sentence handed down by Judge [Marsha N.] Revel. We believe that the penalty is far harsher than what others would have received under similar circumstances. The reality is that Ms. Lohan, like most defendants, had to balance work commitments with court requirements. To be punished so severely for doing so, particularly in light of the fact that she substantially complied with each of her probationary conditions, is harsh and unfair. That said, Ms. Lohan is prepared to serve her jail time and to comply with the Court's orders."

Addressing the swear word scrawled on her clients fingernail, she added, "With respect to Ms. Lohan's nails, the fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye. That a courtroom camera, purportedly there to accurately chronicle the proceedings, would use a telephoto lens to zoom in as it did to Ms. Lohan's fingernail is a commentary on the entire issue."
