We hope he will actually LISTEN this time around!
Michael Lohan was back in a Florida courthouse yesterday, in regards to his latest arrests, stemming from a physical altercation with ex-girlfriend Kate Major and then once again after violating a protective order against her by trying to call her, and luckily, this time around, he had no objections to the judge extending the ban on him having any contact with her!
According to his attorney, Michael Perry:
"He was in court today regarding maintaining the restraining order by stipulation without the judge entering any finding or fact. We just agreed to the injunction, he does not want to see Miss Major any more and wants to put this behind him. There is an arraignment tomorrow in Tampa for the four charges against him but he will not be appearing in court because he has filed a plea of not guilty.”
And Dennis Menendez, press officer for the 12th Judicial circuit court in Florida, elaborates:
"The appearance was basically to make the TRO a permanent restraining order. In addition to making that, one of the things that came out in court was that due to previous charges in a prior case (NOT the current Tampa case) where Lohan pled to a violence charge, he has to be mandated to attend a batterer's class. This had nothing to do with the charges brought against him in Tampa. The original TRO was filed in Sarasota on June 6. It has been continued on two or three occasions and today it was made a permanent restraining order. Both parties agreed to it. He’ll be sent back to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office tonight or tomorrow morning."
Well, seeing as he's already facing four years in prison if he's convicted on his latest batch of charges, it would be pretty STOOPID of him to violate this now-permanent restraining order!
But you know those Lohans! They and the law are like oil and
What do U think?? Will Michael listen this time around?
