Lindsay Lohan\'s Lawyer Disappointed in Harsh Sentence
Lindsay Lohan's high powered attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, who's based in Santa Monica at the firm Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert, was just as shocked as we were when Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Holley released the following statement to HOLLYSCOOP about Lindsay's "harsh" sentence:

“Ms. Lohan and I are extremely disappointed in the sentence handed down by Judge 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,” said Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, who’s based in Santa Monica at firm Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert.

She also discussed Lindsay's nail polish and the message that was written on it.

"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,” Holley continued.

Lindsay will have to surrender herself to authorities on July 20th. Do you think her 90 day jail sentence was too harsh? Tell us your thoughts!
