Statements From Lindsay Lohan and Shawn Holley Regarding Resolution of Misdemeanor Charge and Misdemeanor Probation Violation

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 11, 2011) - The following statements were made today following Shawn Holley's appearance in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Lindsay Lohan:

Shawn Holley
"Lindsay has pled no contest to one misdemeanor charge, and we have withdrawn our appeal for the sentencing on her misdemeanor probation violation. Lindsay's sentence for the misdemeanor charge and the probation violation are the same and will run concurrently to one another. Lindsay will perform 480 hours of community service and serve 120 days of jail. In addition, she will seek psychological counseling and attend a Shoplifters Alternative class. As they would with any other defendant with a similar sentence and minimal criminal history, the Sheriff's Department and Probation Department will determine if Lindsay is eligible for electronic monitoring and early release. She is neither requesting nor receiving 'special treatment.' Lindsay and I would both like to thank Judge Sautner and the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office for their fair handling of this case."

Lindsay Lohan
"I am glad to be able to put this past me and move on with my life and my career. I support the judge's decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation. I have already started my community service at the Downtown Women's Center and thank everyone there for their warm welcome. I hope to be able to fulfill my obligation without any press attention. I think the media spotlight should be on issues such as homelessness and domestic violence instead of on me."

Lohan recently brought on-board The Honig Company, LLC to handle her public relations and publicity. All media inquiries should be directed to Steve Honig, 818-986-4300, press@honigcompany.com.
