Lindsay Lohan's new lawyer, Mark Heller, sent a letter to the judge of her criminal case, that basically said Heller and the prosecutors are working in a team to "fix" Lohan.
TMZ reported that the New York-based attorney included the letter along with legal documents required to Santa Monica and L.A. City Attorney.
A close source linked to the case said the judge was furious after reading it because the letter seemed like a facade made to inappropriately influence the court.
In the letter, Heller states in the letter that he and the prosecutors will work together as a team to "fix" Lindsay.
The lawyer then accuses Lohan's family issues and problems as the main cause of her criminal behavior. He says in the letter, you cannot judge her "without considering the pain, torment and confusion which Lindsay has experienced and has been afflicted with."
In the attempt of avoiding jail time for the troubled actress, he says that Lohan is willing to be a better person, even contributing her time to speak in schools, hospitals, and other venues acceptable for inspirational talks, E! News reported.
"Lindsay will gladly be participating in intensive psychotherapy, submitting herself to regular screenings and contributing her time to the production of public service messages."
Heller also states in the letter that the Liz & Dick actress is exploring to open Lindsay Lohan Foundation, an non-profit organization to benefit American youths.
The judge will respond on Heller's request on a hearing scheduled next Friday.
