Lindsay Lohan's Legal Shenanigans Have Cost Taxpayers 'Millions,' Says Expert

linsday_lohan_fu_225.jpgRidiculously, obscenely short four-hour jail sentences notwithstanding, Lindsay Lohan's legal woes have cost more than just her professional respectability and reputation; one expert guesstimates that the actress's 20+ court appearances have wasted "millions" for the people of California. "It has likely cost taxpayers millions of dollars," attorney Vikki Ziegler told Fox News. "It costs tens of thousands of dollars per court appearance for all the clerks, the security, and those court reporters who get paid by the page," adds former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes. "Plus it diverts the administration of justice for other matters." Truth. Besides, how can anyone get on processing Kim Kardashian's divorce when LiLo keeps hogging the spotlight? [FoxNews]
