Lindsay Lohan’s father blasts actress’ new lawyer Robert Shapiro

HollywoodNews.com: Lindsay Lohan’s father, Michael, is irate that her new attorney Robert Shapiro isn’t doing anything to appeal her jail time before the judge.

The fact that Shapiro put Lohan in Pickford Lofts, a rehab house he founded, just isn’t sitting well with Papa Lohan. Shapiro defended O.J. Simpson in his famed murder case during the mid ‘90s.

“It’s a conflict of interest if he’s putting her in his own sober house but not doing anything for her legally,” Michael Lohan said of Shapiro, whose son Brent died of a drug overdose in 2005. “An attorney is ethically responsible for defending their client to the best of their ability.”

The New York Daily News reported on Michael’s gripes.

Lindsay is expected to report to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. on Tuesday. She is serving time for violating probation for a pair of 2007 DUI busts.

Also, Michael has a problem with the fact that Shapiro isn’t getting Lohan off prescription drugs.

“Everyone knows that when you go into the jail or prison system, if you’re on prescriptions written by a doctor, they give them to you in prison.

“It’s a continuous cycle. Here you are punishing a girl because she has a drug problem, or at least for things that resulted from a drug problem and not doing anything to fix it. I’m very upset that Robert Shapiro did nothing to appeal the case.”

Michael believes it’s “sickening” that Lindsay is going to jail.

“First of all, hurt for her, and hurt that I saw the same people around her who enabled her, all sitting right up in front of me and behind me. It was sickening.”
