Lindsay Lohan - Lindsay Lohan Did Not Get 'Special' Jail Deal

Lindsay Lohan didn't get a "special deal" when she was sentenced to house arrest in lieu of jail time.

Shawn Holley - the attorney who represented the troubled star after she recently violated the terms of her 2007 conviction for driving under The Influence (DUI) - thinks a recent court decision for the 'Machete' actress to stay within the confines of her apartment in Venice Beach, California, Until June 29 was "fair".

She said: "People think celebrities get it easier and a break, but the converse is true. With someone in the spotlight, there is a lot of attention on the sheriffs and prosecutors, and they don't want people to know deals are being made.

"Anyone with her background would have gotten house arrest, she didn't get a special deal. I worried perception would harm her. But everyone - the judge, the courts - were professional, so it was fair.

"It was difficult in my mind. I believed public pressure would make the powers that be behave differently but she got what everyone would have."

Despite Lindsay having turned up to one of her numerous court appearances sporting a skin-tight white mini-dress and "f**k you" written on her nails, Holley admitted she can only advise her on what could be the best course of action.

She added to E! News: "We have talked in the past about wardrobe. I didn't see the white dress before she wore it. I have mixed feelings about that, was it the most appropriate dress for court? Probably not, but the reality is she's a young beautiful starlet.

"That's probably conservative by her standards. I'm sorry, I won't tell her to dress in an argyle sweater all buttoned up. That's transparent and phony, too."

Lindsay will continue to be under house arrest until June 29 for violating her probation and for stealing a $2,500 necklace.
