Lindsay Lohan entered a plea of not guilty today and dodged another legal bullet - all thanks to Shawn Holley, the lawyer Lindsay fired not even 24 hours ago.
Truth can be stranger than fiction sometimes.
When the judge asked if she was still representing Lindsay, whose probation was revoked after she was charged with lying to police, Shawn replied:
"At this point, yes. The representation issue will be nailed down."
Lindsay parted ways with legal miracle worker Shawn Monday and has already hired another lawyer in New York, Mark Heller. But there was Holley today.
The judge was understandably confused, but since she was/is still the counsel of record, Holley attended the hearing and entered a plea on her behalf.
A bench warrant probably would have been issued for her arrest had Shawn not stepped in to help her this morning; as such, a pretrial date has been set for January 30.
Lindsay has been ordered to appear to face allegations that she lied to law enforcement following her August car wreck on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Stay tuned. It's all we ever do with her.
