Just one day before Lindsay Lohan surrendered to the court to begin serving her 90 day jail sentence, we read a report of the courtroom restrictions put in place by Judge Marsha Revel concerning Lindsay’s transportation to jail. The judge ordered that NO cameras would be allowed to be on when Lindsay was to be taken into custody so no photographs could be taken of her being handcuffed … BUT the restrictions did NOT apply to Mona Shafer, courtroom sketch artist. Ms. Shafer managed to capture the moment Lindsay was handcuffed and hauled off to jail in one of her wonderfully detailed sketches:
She surrendered to the court Tuesday to begin her jail sentence – and cameras caught almost every moment of the brief hearing. That is, until Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed and taken into custody. But PEOPLE.com has a sketch of the actress, 24, as she was cuffed with her hands behind her back and led quietly out a side door by four sheriff’s deputies. Lohan, who is expected to serve two weeks at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., received her first visitor on Tuesday – lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley, who said the starlet was having a “difficult time adjusting.” Said Holley: “She’s trying to make the necessary adjustments to an extremely stressful and difficult situation. There were some tears.”
Mona Shafer was the courtroom sketch artist to captured moments of the Chris Brown assault case last year and has previously sketched Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie when they were pleading their cases before the court. So, even tho no photographs could be taken of the moment Lindsay was handcuffed, Mona Shafer managed to successfully capture the moment for posterity.
