Lindsay Lohan's lawyer blames family for legal problems
Troubled star Lindsay Lohan's lawyer blames her family for her legal problems and has asked a judge not to send her to jail.
The 26-year-old actress's new legal representative Mark Heller wrote a letter to the judge in her criminal case asking her not to send the actress to jail for violating her probation.
He claimed that he and prosecutors can work together to 'fix' Lindsay, who is facing three misdemeanor counts involving a car crash last June after being charged for
resisting, obstruction, providing false information to a police officer and reckless driving, reported TMZ online.
In a letter to prosecutors Terry White and Spencer Hart filed with recent legal documents, Heller stated, "We, as a team, (can) help 'fix' Lindsay Lohan."
He then blamed Lindsay's ongoing legal troubles on her dysfunctional family and said they could not judge her 'without considering the pain, torment and confusion which Lindsay has experienced and has been afflicted with.'
In the letter, Heller also appealed to the prosecutor and the judge not to send Lindsay to jail.
"Lindsay will gladly be participating in intensive psychotherapy, submitting herself to regular screenings and contributing her time to the production of public service messages."
Lindsay, who fired her long time lawyer Shawn Holley last month and reportedly owes her USD 300,000, recently claimed she needs her family to keep her sane.
Asked what is helping her through her problems, Lindsay - who is estranged from her father Michael, said, "Family. You can't get through anything without the family. Family is everything."
