It seems no one noticed at the time, but while tabloid starlet Lindsay Lohan was making an impassioned speech to a California judge about respect for the court and taking responsibility for her actions, she was also apparently sending a secret, defiant message hidden by tiny type in her fingernails: "F**k U."Magnified images of Lohan's fingers revealed the words today, casting doubt on her remorse over her parole violation for a 2007 DUI conviction for which she was on trial Tuesday. Regardless of the nails, Beverly Hills judge Marsha Revel leveled a 90-day prison sentence followed by 90 days of in-patient rehab for the 24-year-old.
It's an unusually harsh sentence for a relatively minor offense, California defense attorney Mark Geragos said today.
"I just think this sentence is utterly ridiculous," Geragos, who is not involved in the case, told "Good Morning America." "The fact remains that if she was anybody else, Lindsay Smith, that she wouldn't be treated this way. ... This is a completely outrageous sentence in terms of her violation."
Before learning her fate, Lohan pleaded her case to the court -- aware that she might be shown special treatment, one way or the other.
