The man who has become Lindsay Lohan‘s personal checkbook, bail bondsman David Perez, has broken legal ranks to declare: “Putting her behind bars was unfair!”
Perez — who posted the $300,000 bail to spring Lohan from behind bar — told RadarOnline.com he thought Judge Elden Fox’s decision to remand the actress in custody, without bail, was unprecedented.
Perez said, “I think what Judge Fox did to her, putting her behind bars was unfair. It was a misdemeanor, and she was entitled to bail. I have never seen a judge deny someone bail because of a misdemeanor, ever.”
Perez, who was in the courtroom last Friday, said he was prepared to post bail immediately, but was left stunned with Judge Fox’s decision to put her behind bars.
Lohan appealed the decision and Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg later set bail for the actress at $300,000.
Perez said Lohan had no trouble coming up the whopping bail.
“There was absolutely no problem whatsoever in securing her bail, period,” he said, in an exclusive interview.
“Lindsay has never had financial problems securing bail.”
But the bondsman wouldn’t reveal if Lohan, or someone else, posted her bail, citing confidentiality issues.
He added, “Lindsay is a very talented young lady. I wish only the best for her.”
