Video: Will Lindsay Lohan report to jail?

  1. Transcript of: Will Lindsay Lohan report to jail?

    MATT LAUER, co-host: But let's begin this half-hour with the day that Lindsay Lohan has feared for some time. She's scheduled to surrender for the start of her 90-day jail sentence . Now there are reports that her newest attorney, Robert Shapiro , will not be with her. NBC 's Lee Cowan 's at the Beverly Hills Courthouse with the latest on all this. Lee , good morning to you.

    LEE COWAN reporting: Well, good morning, Matt. Yeah, if true that Robert Shapiro has in fact quit, that would be the second attorney in as many weeks to leave Lohan 's side. Robert Shapiro , of course, of O.J. Simpson 's fame, had said that he would accept the case, but only if she agreed to abide by the terms of her probation, which also include some jail time. But jail time, some say, is something that Lindsay Lohan is finding increasingly impossible to accept. Since her last court appearance, aside from a few public outings, Lindsay Lohan has largely stayed off the tabloid radar, even checking herself into a drug rehab facility, where some say the waiting is wreaking havoc on her nerves.

    Mr. DAVID CAPLAN (Senior Editor, People Magazine): She's had trouble sleeping . She's had trouble eating. She's been crying a lot.

    COWAN: People magazine reports she's a fidgety mess. The reality of isolation and jailhouse food and jailhouse bedding is now starting to set in.

    Even her tweets sound different: `The only "bookings" that I'm familiar with are Disney films ,' she wrote last night. `Never thought I'd be "booking" into jail.'

    Mr. CAPLAN: She's sort of being in denial about it right after she was sentenced, but now she's really thinking to herself, what is it going to be like to be in this cell by myself, alone, with not many things to do?

    COWAN: One possible strategy for limiting her jail time was getting her in rehab first. The sober living facility that Lohan pre-emptively checked herself into last week was the one Robert Shapiro opened himself after his son Brent died of a drug overdose . But while the rehab may improve Lohan 's image with the court, it may not convince the judge to postpone jail time.

    Mr. KEN BAKER (Chief News Correspondent, E! Network): Most people feel like while it's a good thing that she went into this sober living house, I think that most people also think that it's too little, too late, and that's probably what the judge is going to think as well.

    COWAN: It's not that rehab isn't part of Lohan 's sentence, it is. In fact, the judge ordered her to complete three months of inpatient care, but only after jail.

    Dr. DREW PINSKY (Addiction Specialist): The only fear I have is that by going to jail first she'll be hardened and won't be open to the treatment process, and the fact that the judge has only mandated three months when Lindsay clearly needs at least a year.

    COWAN: Now, Matt , that is a live picture you're looking at of the jail in Lynwood , California , where Lindsay Lohan is expected to report sometime later on today to be taken into custody there. The reality is though, Matt , no one really expects her to do some three months there. The reality is most people think she'll probably do more like three weeks. But again, this is something that most say she could have avoided had she just followed the terms of her

    original probation. Matt: All right, Lee Cowan . Lee , thank you very much . Jeanine Pirro is a former district attorney and county judge , and the host of the "Judge Jeanine Pirro Show." Dr. Julie Holland is a psychiatrist and author of "Weekends at Bellevue." Good morning to both of you.

    LAUER: Good morning.

    Ms. JEANINE PIRRO (Former District Attorney and County Judge): Jeanine , let me start with you.

    LAUER: Good morning.

    Dr. JULIE HOLLAND (Psychiatrist and Drug Expert): First of all, rehab , sober living facility, what's the difference? And if you're the judge, and you are, do you want to take her out of that to make her go serve 90 days in jail?

    LAUER: I tell you, I absolutely would take her out of it. And I believe that Judge Revel will do just that. Sober living is not a rehab facility. And what you've got is a woman who's been in rehab three to four times and gets arrested almost immediately after coming out. It's time for her to go to jail and serve the sentence.

    Ms. PIRRO: Let me ask you about this report that Robert Shapiro , her newest of a string of attorneys, may have decided, `No thank you, I don't want to be a part of this case.' Justice , I would imagine, is supposed to be blind to the person representing you in court. But does all this turmoil impact her case in some way?

    LAUER: I don't think it does. I think that the judge has made a decision that she's violated probation. The judge has bent over backward to give her every opportunity. She's given her an alcohol education program that she lied about, she didn't go to. She goes to Cannes , she parties. Any judge would have put her in jail long before this. So enter Robert Shapiro , a guy with a great pedigree, but the bottom line is it's about her pedigree and her lack of respect for the court. It's time for her to go to jail, irrespective of the change in lawyers.

    Ms. PIRRO: To go to jail for how long? Prosecutor has asked for 30 days ; the judge gave her 90 days . I think a lot of people raised their eyebrows at that. In reality, how much time is she going to spend behind bars?

    LAUER: She'll spend 25 percent of that because it's Los Angeles and there is no truth in sentencing, and that's why people are skeptical of the justice system .

    Ms. PIRRO: So three weeks?

    LAUER: Three weeks at the most.

    Ms. PIRRO: All right. Dr. Holland , this is a troubled young lady. There have been numerous reports of her trouble with alcohol in the past. Over the last several months, according to published reports, she has been on several prescription drugs including Adderall , Zoloft and Dilaudid . If these had been prescribed for legitimate reasons, will be she allowed to continue taking them behind bars?

    LAUER: You know, typically the prisons decide what the patient can or cannot take, and my assumption is that they're not going to be OK with her taking addictive medications like stimulants and opiates, which is the Adderall and the Dilaudid . Whether they decide to let her continue with her anti-depressants, I think she'll have to see a psychiatrist there and they'll make that determination.

    Dr. HOLLAND: When you -- when you hear reports, and I think People magazine is reporting this, that's she's extremely fidgety and nervous about that, my first reaction is, good! I mean, you know, you'd want...

    LAUER: Right.

    Dr. HOLLAND: ....you want her to be nervous about this. It's supposed to be a deterrent so it avoids bad behavior in the future, isn't that right?

    LAUER: Yeah. Well, you know, this in some ways is really just what she needs . You know, she needs to be -- she needs a time out. She needs to sort of be pulled away from the attention and the gawking and the enabling. She needs to be with herself and have some time to really be present and conscious and self-reflecting and figure out what's going on in her life and where she can take it from here . So I think in some ways the judge and other people, they're trying to help her. However, you know, I really think that treatment is better than incarceration and, you know, what will be best for her is to have a good psychotherapist and a psychiatrist.

    Dr. HOLLAND: Before...

    LAUER: I don't know that lawyers and prison guards are going to do much to really help her change her behavior.

    Dr. HOLLAND: Before I let Jeanine jump on you for that one, let me just ask you, you know, I've always heard that addicts can't be cured unless they're ready to help themselves. If a court orders you into rehab and a court orders you to jail, is that the same thing?

    LAUER: It really isn't the same thing, you're right. I mean, she has got to want to make changes in her behavior. She really needs intensive psychotherapy, she needs family therapy. She needs to learn new ways of behaving and coping. And I don't -- she's not going to get that sitting alone in a jail cell . But at least what she'll get is some time to self-reflect, and I think she needs it.

    Dr. HOLLAND: The court system didn't pick Lindsay Lohan and say, ` Look , here's a woman with an alcohol problem , let's get her into rehab .' The woman is convicted of driving with a .08 blood alcohol in her system, under the influence of cocaine, reckless driving, commandeering someone else's car. This is not about alcoholism and whether she should get treatment, it's about a woman who gets drunk and gets into a car and puts all of our lives in danger, who snubs her nose at the criminal justice system and says, `The rules don't apply to me the way they apply to everyone else.' If she gets rehab , that's great. But the bottom line is she's a criminal, she's been convicted, she's been given a break, it's time to go to jail.

Robert Shapiro informed Judge Marsha Revel on Monday that he is no longer representing Lindsay Lohan, TMZ reports.

Famed attorney Robert Shapiro has parted ways with Lindsay Lohan on the eve of her court date, according to a new report.

TMZ reported on Monday night that the attorney let Judge Marsha Revel, the Superior Court judge overseeing Lohan’s case, know that he is not representing the actress any longer.

More from Access: Lohan lashes out at dad on Twitter

Shapiro, who once represented O.J. Simpson, was expected to step in officially — in front of the court — as Lohan’s new counsel on Tuesday, when the star is expected to surrender to begin her 90-day jail sentence.

Shawn Chapman Holley, who had been representing the actress, resigned shortly after Lohan was sentenced for violating her DUI probation. She had not, however, been officially recused from the case by the judge.

Video: Lindsay's last day of freedom

Shapiro had filed papers last week in Los Angeles Superior Court to become Lohan’s new lawyer.

At the time, he also indicated he took Lohan’s case with a condition that “she comply with the terms of probation, including a requirement of jail,” he said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

After Shapiro took the case, Lohan checked into the Pickford Lofts, a sober-living house founded by Shapiro.

When reached by Access Hollywood on Monday evening, Shapiro had no comment on the report.

Lohan is due to turn herself in to Revel’s court on Tuesday, when she is expected to be transported to jail to begin serving her sentence.

The actress tweeted on Monday night a bit of humor on the eve of her impending time behind bars.

“the only ‘bookings’ that i’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i’d be ‘booking’ into Jail… eeeks,” she wrote.

  64. Outgrowing Disney

    Lohan's big role in 2005 was in yet another Disney remake, "Herbie: Fully Loaded."
