Lindsay Lohan to likely serve two weeks in jail, says Sheriff's spokesman

Lindsay Lohan will likely serve only two weeks of her 90-day sentence in jail, provided the 24-year-old actress behaves herself, according to People. “She is scheduled to be released on either Aug. 1 or 2 for overcrowding issues and good behavior,” L.A. Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told People. The L.A. County jail system commonly releases nonviolent misdemeanor offenders early due to overcrowding. Lohan began her jail sentence Tuesday at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. The actress will be serving time alone in a 12-by-8 cell for violating probation in connection to her DUI case.

    shocking! Who didn’t see that coming.

  • Where is the Outrage???

    Sadly, this publicity will turn her career around. I wouldn’t be surprized to see her in a big Disney movie or something when she gets out. She’s a genus, IMHFO…

    • Garry

      She won’t be in a Disney movie–don’t forget her big role as porn star Linda Lovelace!

      • Lucy

        and that role is pretty unimpressive imo

    • mia

      it may turn her career around but she’ll be in a body bag within 2 years at the rate she’s going.

  • Rick James

    Cocaine is a helluva drug

  • Jen

    People will act like they’re just doing this cuz she’s a celebrity, but they arent. They would release Jane Doe for overcrowding too if its a non violent crime like Lindsay’s.

    • hc

      Agreed. I’m aboard the “celebrity’s get special treatment train”, but CA’s economy is a MESS. Part of their economic plan to save money is to let prisoners go early.

        besides, I understand this sentence is for not showing up in her DUI case, not the DUI case itself, but isn’t a DUI a pretty serious, violent offense? They’re sending the message that it’s okay, not such a big deal to drive dangerously. Does she have to kill someone before it becomes a big deal?

      • Flying Monkey

        @Dorkophile – Sadly, the answer is yes.

  • Garry

    What an idiotic judicial system we have. Why can’t 90 days MEAN 90 days? Two weeks in jail will do absolutely nothing to change Lohan–and if she won’t have to serve the full length of her jail sentence, why would she bother to stay in rehab for 90 days, either?
    She’ll be back out partying in the clubs before the end of the summer. What a pig she is.

    • molly

      only in CA does 90 days mean 14 days – in the rest of the US it means exactly that – CA caters to the rich and famous – LiHO should have been moved to another state to serve her jail time

      • Kelley

        Again, it has nothing to do with her being rich and famous. What Jen above said is correct. She would be released early if her name was Jane Doe for the same offense.

      • molly

        OK fine – what does liho have to do before she gets a full sentence – kill someone – any volunteers – how about you Kelley

  • TigerLillie

    No where near enough time for her to learn her lesson. But there’s no way she’ll stick to the straight and narrow with rehab and probation. That’s just not how she rolls. That judge will probably get another crack at her.

  • Alternative

    So she gets out in 2 weeks. The jails are so overcroweded, that there isn’t enough room. Would you prefer violent offender (like murderer or rapist) getting out so there could be more room for her?

    • molly

      why can’t she share a cell with a murderer – she has her own cell – no wonder CA can’t keep inmates in – it’s jail – no one should have a personal room – let’s hear it for “general population” blocks

      • WhitneyD

        Seriously, Molly? The reason she’s in solitary cell is because she’s a celebrity- there’s already buzz from gen pop that they can’t wait to mess with her. It would take even more jail resources to keep her safe if she was in gen pop.

  • carolae

    Celebrity status has its perks but then again, we all knew she wouldn’t be spending 90 days in jail. Overcrowding????? I think this little stint was just to teach her a lesson which, sad to say, won’t. She will be back on the street again partying up a storm and driving while under the influence. What are the parents going to do….wait until she kills someone while drunk and then it will be too late. Hopefully, once out, she will seek the help she needs and go to a facility where she can ‘dry out’ and get counseling. Her movie/TV days are over.

  • Henry

    14 minutes and counting…..I wish the rags would get the point.

  • David G

    Those who fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it. Until people are held accountable for their actions, we have no hope of them ever learning.

  • It’s a fact

    For the media who has made this a freakshow. . . did anyone expect that she would have served her full 90 days. 2 week?? 2 Weeks!! This is the justice system taking a backseat to the states cost cutting measures and overcrowding. No wonder no one fears jail (except for celebrity drama queens). Lindsey will only learn to be worse than ever. I only hope she moves away and stays way. But we all know she can’t and she won’t stay away from her D-list fame.

    • molly

      it is also a fact that CA has no money – too bad for LiHO – she wil never learn the lessons of jail time and [poof] here is her career and life going up in flames………goodbye liho

  • Will

    so she’s been in there a day and they’re already citing “good behavior”…really?!…it’s not like she’s in a timeout chair.

    • WhitneyD

      They estimated her date of release on the belief that she will behave, not that they’ve decided she’s a model prisoner already. If she doesn’t, it will get pushed back.

  • Liz

    Seriously sucks. I know that CA has overcrowding issues but I’m pretty sure they are letting her go before scheduled parolies. I hope she does the mandatory 60 day of rehab and doesnt get a free pass there


    it has nothing to do with her being a celebrity, in fact I think she was sentenced to jail BECAUSE she is a celebrity, they do not get special treatment….Oh man I am going to regret this…but about 2 years ago I was in the same situation, I was arrested for my second DUI and I thought my life was over, most people in my would tell you I am not a bad person, I had a problem, I was sinking deeper and deeper and didn’t think I was ever going to get out, and didn’t think my life was much worth getting out for anyway…I went through a probation program for repeat drunk driving offenders that was designed for rehabilitation as well as punishment, I did no jail time, but my conditions were fierce, there were so many people in this program it was staggering, i thought i was the only one who did this horrible thing, we all gathered to check in weekly/monthly(depending on your status) in court in front of the judge, when someone wld violate(like Lohan) they often went to jail for the weekend, and obviously probation was extended a few weeks or so, so no Lohan is not getting any special treatment…3 years later I am proud to say I am still sober, I have my license back and I am working with fellow alcoholics on a daily basis, and my life is better than I ever thought it could be…I have come to believe with all my heart that everything happens for a reason, Lindsey can recover from this, and I do sympathize with her

    • REASON

      in the beginning i meant to say “about 3 years ago” not 2
