Lindsay to get private cell, how much time will she serve?

Defends profane manicure
There are so many updates to the “ZOMG Lindsay Lohan is going to jail!” story that it’s hard to know where to begin. I’ll start with the hoopla over her “F*ck U” manicure as that’s the most amusing. Lindsay gave a weak defense to sporting a swear word on her middle finger in court. She tweeted to a “friend” that the manicure was a joke and was somehow conspiratorial but not meant to be offensive. “@liana_levi didn’t we do our nails as a joke with our friend dc? it had nothing to do w/court.. it’s an airbrush design from a stencil xx” Who is Lindsay kidding, that was a direct message to the judge. I don’t know if it was visible to Judge Revel from the bench, but experts say that Lindsay could be charged for contempt for it and receive even more jail time.

Tweets about “cruel and inhuman” punishment
Lindsay tweeted a couple of quotes on human rights and the inequities of the justice system as if she were headed to Guantanamo indefinitely without trial. She’s basically making herself out to be a victim and conveniently forgetting the fact that she was busted for DUI twice and failed to meet her probation requirements. Here are the tweets, which Kaiser encouraged me to screencap for sheer comic value. The URL she tweeted is to a story about an Iranian woman who faces the death penalty for adultery. As Gawker asks, “Did Lindsay Lohan Just Compare Herself to an Iranian Woman Being Stoned to Death?”

Was her sentence too harsh?
Like Lindsay, her lawyer is complaining that her sentence was too harsh and uncalled for. TMZ also quotes lawyers who claim that the sentence is not customary for that type of probation violation. In retaliation, sources say Lindsay called Judge Revel a “F*cking Bitch.” I guess that message on her nails served a purpose after all.

Her accommodations in jail
The NY Daily News has photos inside the jail where Lindsay is facing hard time. It’s bare and tough, and she’s going to be bored and bouncing off the walls, with just one hour a day outside of her cell. She will be placed in solitary confinement for her own protection but former inmates say that may not work out for her. Without someone to talk to she may go even more batty. The food is said to be awful and inedible.

How much time she’ll serve
Non violent offenders serve an average of 25% of their sentences in LA County, and some experts say that Lindsay may serve a week or less out of her 90 day sentence. Judge Revel probably took this into account during sentencing. The Deputy District Attorney told People that “I’m always disappointed when inmates are released early… but the jails are not my jurisdiction.” There are rumors that Lindsay’s people are trying to get her into rehab instead or before she heads to jail. Good luck with that.

Confirmation on the drugs Lindsay is taking
Radar Online and TMZ have copies of Lindsay’s probation report. It confirms earlier stories that she’s taking the way too powerful opiate painkiller Dilaudid for “dental pain” along with Zoloft, Adderall, Trazadone and Nexium. She tested positive for both opiates and amphetamines (as found in painkiller Dilaudid and ADD medication Adderall) but was given a pass due to her prescriptions. Lindsay will get random drug testing until August, 2011 under the terms of her sentencing. It’s unknown whether she will be allowed to continue taking powerful, probably uncalled for prescriptions and it’s not known whether she’ll have to wear the SCRAM during that time. Kaiser let me know that the judge said the prescriptions could possibly be discontinue if a doctor determines them unnecessary. I’m hoping that the Dilaudid is nixed for Lindsay’s sake.

Messed with her SCRAM device
TMZ reports that Lindsay (allegedly) tried to impede her SCRAM device on two different occasions, once before it registered a positive reading after the MTV Movie Awards and again a few days later. Her lawyer of course has an excuse for that and says the device is faulty.

Her pre-jail visitors
Lindsay was visited at home by Kim Kardashian last night, and her mother also flew in to commiserate with her on how unjust the world is for celebrities that deserve to get their will at all times. People were wondering why Dina didn’t show up at the sentencing. My theory is that she never expected her little baby to get more than a warning and a slap on the wrist. It’s all that mean old judge’s fault that Lindsay is finally facing some consequences.

Oh – and on a final note, her daddy spoke to E! Online about how Lindsay needs help for her addictions and not jail. I guess we know now why he didn’t talk to any reporters outside the courtroom – he wanted to sell an exclusive.

    Oh, this is rich! Kim Kardashian is counseling Lindsey? WTF? I’ve never heard of them having a “friendship” so I’m left to guess that Kim will do and insert herself in ANY situation to get some press?

  2. YT says:

    The jail time is just to get her attention, but she will always blame others for her missteps. I doubt she is ready to admit that she needs serious rehab time.

    On another note, I hope someone is looking at her doctors for over-prescribing medications.

  3. Larissa says:

    what a effing spoiled delusional bitch, seriously… comparing herself to a woman being stoned to death ?????

    Fuck off already Lohan, can we please forget this piece of trash ever existed?

  4. fc2010 says:

    Are they kidding…her sentence unfair?
    She drove drunk with captives, violated her probation..drove drunk AGAIN and was
    caught with cocaine…wow lets hear it for LA county and CA

  5. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Doesn’t the evil unfair f’ing b*tch judge know that we all live in the poor victim child Lindsay Lohan world??!!

  6. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    I don’t know how the law works in California, but where I am from if you are on probabtion for a DUI and then you get another, PLUS test positive for cocaine, that is AUTOMATIC PRISON time for 120 days. Not jail, prison!

    A friend of mine had 2 DUI’s, violated his probation (having violated it with a pot charge, in addition to violating by having a 2 nd DUI) and went to prison for 120 day shock, and served 120 days, and was on parole for 2 yrs after.

    So i do not want to hear about her being treated unfairly or too harsh of a punishment. Maybe Cali has different DUI laws, but here, where I am, the laws are strict and enforced with the courts.

  7. lucy2 says:

    The judge probably made it so much jail time, knowing it would be cut way down, and wants LL to have to spend at least a few nights in jail.
    The “it was a joke” nail thing has to be the lamest excuse ever. Has nothing to do with court? She wore it to court that way! If you know you have your final hearing coming up, you don’t do that.
    Totally agree, Marjalane, Kim K will show up anywhere she can get attention. Sick.

  8. Roma says:

    I know people have mentioned it before, but I’m shocked by her getting Dilaudid for wisdom teeth removal. I had a hell of a surgery in which they had to break the teeth apart and extract them and I had to make do with some T3′s, even though I was crying in pain after surgery.

    It’s the same as the MJ situation: some doctors will prescribe anything.

  9. waldemar says:

    I just noticed that the first person listed under “following” on her twitter page in Chris Brown.

    Also, I know that painkillers can brighten up your day, but how the hell do you feel when you need all that in your system? Absurd.

  10. go2jail-donotpassgo-donotcollect200dollars says:

    If any one of us typing in the comments was convicted of any of the crimeS, because there were multiple, we would already have been in jail for 2 1/2 years. She got what she deserved, she isn’t a little girl, she is a grown adult. If you are grown up enough to watch your 16 year old sister constantly then u should know right from wrong. And yes she DOES DESERVE jail time. That’s what people who violate laws, probation get as punishment – jail time.

  11. dread pirate cuervo says:

    She should be charged with contempt of court for the nail art. “It was just a joke” doesn’t cut it. Your life is not a joke, Lohan! That is proof positive that she doesn’t take this situation seriously. Since her parents couldn’t\wouldn’t teach her how to be a productive member of society, maybe her fellow inmates will.

  12. Leek says:

    She sucks so bad. I couldn’t care less what happens to this waste of human life.

  13. Jackson says:

    I hope her meds get yanked. How convenient for her to have ‘legal prescriptions’ for some tasty drugs. I hope someone with integrity and wisdom evaluates the meds she is on and pares them down to the bare minimum…like maybe just the Nexium.

  14. Jazz says:

    She’s getting a slap on the wrist compared to what RDJ got so she should STFU and thank the judge.

  15. Siren6 says:

    I fully realize this circus is just getting started, but I’m already feeling pretty over it.

    LiLo hasn’t done any work of merit in the past few years – acting, designing, singing, or otherwise – to justify getting as much attention as she has, and she’s basically just getting it now for being a Grade A trainwreck. The dysfunction surrounding her is sick, it’s kind of sad, but it’s now too predictable to grant inches of ink or pixels to. If she pulled a Paris Hilton and faded a bit off the gossip track I for one wouldn’t miss her.

  16. Tia C says:

    I hope she serves every second of the 90 days! It is the least she deserves, for reasons Fluffy Kitten Tail explained very well.

    There is no reason why a healthy 24 year old should be on all those prescriptions. I hope they all get canceled and she finally has to be really and truly clean, not just pretend clean, like she’s been for the past several years.

  17. denise says:

    Oh Lindsay, Lindsay. Until you realize you have a problem, there is no hope for you. This chick will be dead if she continues this lifestyle. I’m surprised she has made it this far.

  18. Emily says:

    Even if her dad is just in it for the publicity, he’s better than Dina. That bitch is toxic.

  19. Hautie says:

    Here is what I am still confused about…

    Lohan carjacked a SUV when she took that trip down the highway in 2007. High as hell. Taking hostage 3 men who were in the vehicle.

    Carjacking, even for a flaky dlist celebrity, is still a felony. Isn’t it?

    Added to that fact she had coke on her. Lied to the booking officer that she was not high. And the coke in her pants was not hers. The girl is nothing but a bad liar. And has been proven a bad liar in front of her Judge.

    Prior to that hadn’t she crashed her car repeatably that Summer, while being either drunk or high.

    So for the past 3 years, the court has done everything to keep her out of jail. And all Lohan does is sh*t on them for their effort.

    If she had any sense she would turn herself in early and get the jail time over with. I seriously doubt she does over 1-3 days. But running her mouth for the next two weeks is going to get her into more trouble.

  20. Feebee says:

    She will serve her week or two in jail, then probably launch an appeal against rehab. If that doesn’t work she will go to rehab and cause the type of havoc one who’s not ready to be there causes. She’ll come out of rehab and it’ll start all over again.

    I know I point to RDJ as a case of jail time (the second time?) finally making him see through his bullshit but he was older and had fallen harder than where Lindsay’s at now… she may have a destructive path to complete before she accepts help. It’ll be harder for her (to get better) because of her mother, which is self-explanatory.

  21. Anti-icon says:

    As somehow who has seen the inside of a county jail cell for a DWAI (Not even a full blown DUI) I can say with complete and total reliability that Lindsey Lohan’s sentence IS NOT TOO HARSH. HER LEGAL DEFENSE IS A DREAM THAT MOST AMERICANS CANNOT AFFORD. LEGAL DEFENSE GENERALLY STOPS WHEN SENTENCING IS HANDED OUT. THEN IT IS UP TO THE CRIMINAL (me, lindsey) to complete the sentence, which is NOT easy and is filled with beauractic pitfalls. She has handlers to remind her of what to do, and she can’t even do it. She makes me so mad, because I’ve had to face so many repurcvussions from my DWAI inside my life and my career and the punishment is horrific. But I did it.

  22. llb says:

    She is “one tough bitch”. (did I read that quote here or somewhere else?)
    Anyway.
    Lindsay is being put in a solitary cell for the protection of the OTHER inmates. Lindsay is so tough. haha.
    They’re afraid she will beat up on some of the other women in there.

  23. meme says:

    will this LI trash never go away? i’m betting they get a shrink to say she’s mentally ill and can’t go to jail. she’ll end up in a psych ward for a while and then go to rehab. this brat can get away with ANYTHING.

  24. Obvious says:

    @Tia C, she’s obviously unhealthy, and I can see where a few of thos drugs maybe neccesary. Adderall is a downer to regulate chemicals in your brain but many people take medication for ADD or ADHD then find they become depressed and are prescribed anti-depressants too. It’s not uncommon, I myself was on them for years. I think that while a few drugs (like those should probably stay() the rest should be taken away. And That someone should keep her prescriptions for her (probation officer) and LiLo should only get like 2 days worth at a time.

    I hope that jail and rehab clean her up. If they do, most people will be willing to forgive and forget in the industry and she may find her career waiting.

  25. Ogechi says:

    Hmmm Lindsay, So what you are saying is that you should be treated differently, because of what? You are an American. How long did you actually think that the judge would allow your behavior to continue, she was not your mother. Speaking of which, your mother should have laid down the LAW to you years ago instead of partying with you. My only hope is that your sister will learn from YOUR mistakes and understand that for every action there are consequences. Good luck.

  26. Ursaline says:

    Maybe she needs to have RDJ give her a call and tell her to STFU and be happy that she isn’t going to be in for a few years like he was. He wasn’t hurting anyone but himself but he learned a very hard way. Maybe she needs a grownup to tell her to act like an adult and take responsibility for her own bad choices.

  27. Novaraen says:

    She will never learn. She will never take responsibility.

    Jail is the only way to teach her.

  28. nana says:

    i really cant believe this freckles… just too much. dry skin too

  29. Persistent Cat says:

    Harsh or not, the profanity on her finger is just so many kinds of unacceptable. Who does that? What spoiled, selfish, idiotic, narcissistic sociopath does that when they have a court date coming up?

    She thinks she’s so clever and above reproach. I can just picture her with her equally stupid friends, making fun of the judge and getting these little stencils because these chicks are just. so. bad. ass.

    Please let this bite her in the ass and get more punishment.

  30. bellaluna says:

    Adderall is only a “downer” if you ACTUALLY HAVE ADD/ADHD. Otherwise, it’s like prescription meth.

    When my son was around 5, we thought he was hyperactive. We spoke with his teacher, the principal, the school psychologist, and his doctor; we were advised to try giving him a small cup of black coffee. That also works as a “downer” and doesn’t require a prescription. I understand it may not work for everyone, but it’s certainly a great place to start. Caffeine still calms down my son (he’s never needed prescription medication) and he’s almost 20.

  31. bellaluna says:

    @ Fluffy Kitten Tail -

    I live in So Cal (poor me, I know) – is there room in your town/state for a family of 5? I am so over this state!

    The reason all these criminals are being freed from jail; doing minimal time; not even doing jail time AT ALL is because we won the “All-Time Biggest Incompetency in Government” award. And after “W” and his administration, that’s saying A LOT!! Jails are closing at an alarming level; budget cuts have our court systems (hell, our ENTIRE STATE!) operating Mon-Thurs (good ole’ Furlough Fridays); our law-enforcement officers and fire-fighters have had to negotiate away holidays, pension contributions, uniform allowances, and new/updated NECESSARY equipment. Sorry. End rant.

    @ Obvious – The reason LL is unhealthy is BECAUSE of all the drugs she uses. If she actually needed them, she wouldn’t be acting this way.

  32. Eileen Yover says:

    bellaluna: You need to explore the Great State of Texas! If you can get past the Dukes of Hazard gun racks and staunch republicans! I live in ATL now and its great, but if you’re looking for take no prisoners type of attitude with lawbreakers…that’s the place to be.

  33. anon says:

    @bellaluna (and others), ITA.
    I understand that some people who are commenting here may be on various meds that they actually DO NEED, and may feel as though the rest of us are implying that we feel they are somehow “addicts” because of it (like we are saying about Lindsay). I just wanted to let those people know that I (and I think probably a large number of the other commenters here) have no issues with people who NEED these type of drugs to manage pain, or their mental conditions, or what have you. I/we just have a very strong feeling that (other than possibly the Adderall), Lindsay doesn’t “need” any of this stuff, ESPECIALLY Dilaudid.

    (Like many other commenters have noted, I only ever heard of Dilaudid when 1) I read John Phillips’ autobiography and he discussed how he shot it up initially to try to get off heroin, then became even more addicted to it than he had been to heroin, 2) my aunt was given it during her “end stage” period-she had colon cancer. In any case, it doesn’t seem to be an appropriate pain mgmt med for one time dental work, no matter what your pain threshold may be. And in Lindsay’s case, if she truly does have a lowered pain threshold, it’s probably due to drug use in the first place.)

    Part of my job deals with reviewing people’s medical files/histories to determine if they can qualify as disabled or not, and for every claimant who has a legitimate condition/problem, there are at least three other claimants that are clearly “doctor shopping” to get as many narcs/psych meds they can get, sometimes at several different doctors/ERs. And these are below-poverty-level POOR people who are applying for government assistance!!

    If they can engage in these same types of shenanigans and get doctors to give them any drug they want, it is easy to see how a celebrity with access to everything would barely even need to lift a finger to get whatever drugs they want.

  34. CB Rawks says:

    That’s right Lindsay, when you hit bottom start digging. I hope it pleases you that the world is utterly disgusted by you. You are hated and reviled by many, and a punchline to most others.
    I hope she does get extra charges of contempt for all of her scofflaw behaviour. The judge didn’t bury her enough, in my opinion.

  35. Eileen Yover says:

    Oh and her rant on “human rights” is nauseating. You broke the law…and the law won (finally).

  36. bellaluna says:

    @ Eileen Yover – Funny that you suggest Texas, because I’ve actually been thinking about it for awhile! :D
    Ditto on the “human rights” rant – she should be sent to prison somewhere in the Middle East; maybe then she’d STFU and actually comprehend what a “human rights violation” is! Please understand, I mean no offence to anyone, but she really has no idea what she’s talking about.

    @ anon – Yes! I’m not saying EVERYONE who takes prescription meds is an addict. I’m saying if LL does not have a LEGITIMATE MEDICAL NEED for all those meds, SHE absolutely is an addict. There seems to be a bit of hypersensitivity about RX meds, and I am certainly not implying those with a LEGITIMATE MEDICAL NEED are addicts.

    Also, when our older son was 5, we looked into his hyperactivity. We were advised his was mild, and to try a cup of plain black coffee. It worked. This is a perfectly viable first-step-solution for SOME ADD/ADHD sufferers, without having to give them RX drugs.

  37. Feebee says:

    @ anti icon, what’s DWAI? Driving while almost intoxicated? :)

  38. original kate says:

    maybe crack-tweeting isn’t the best way to spend your time the day after you get sentenced to jail & rehab.

  39. I think she might have to serve the full time or close to, because there would be public outrage if she only served an insignificant time.

  40. Anti-icon says:

    @Feebee. LOL. Yes, it is Driving While Ability Impaired, meaning I was .05, and the DUI comes in at .08. I learned my lesson the hard way.

  41. Jeri says:

    Her sentence is harsh because she flaunted her disrespect for the court, probation & her alcohol classes. Did she ever get UA’d at her classes & did she pass? Most classes are out-patient treatment & do random UAs. I didn’t hear about that but since they covered for her to the court regarding absences it’s not likely they were honest about any other results.

    I would think she has healed enough from her dental treatments to give up the pain pills.

  42. Katija says:

    Judge Revel, you know you’re my girl, but PLEASE let me fix your whack-ass eyeliner!!!

  43. Andrea says:

    Well, at least a supposedly real doctor will be looking at her meds and taking her off them if they’re deemed not necessary!

    Seriously though, does anyone know why her doctors are not being investigated yet? Why do they always wait until someone dies!?

    I had 4 teeth pulled out once and I got 10 t3s.

  44. Canucklehead says:

    Seriously is Lindsay this stupid? Did she ever go to school?

    In Hollywood Child Star School did the history book tell her that Steven Biko was jailed for DUI?

    Referencing Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani in her messages is a supreme insult.

    Sakineh is a woman who was forced to confess to adultery under duress and may be stoned to death. Lindsay is a spoiled hosebag who stole an occupied car while high, and took the occupants on a terrifying joyride. After being sentenced to probation she effed that up and now is FINALLY seeing the same justice any normal US citizen.

    Seriously insulting

  45. connie says:

    @kitten fluffy tail

    people usually dont go to prison unless their charge is for 366 days or more
