Crackie wins again! Seconds after Judge Sautner handed down Linnocent’s mandatory 30-day jail sentence, outlets got quotes from inside the LA County Sheriff’s Department regarding the actual length of time Linnocent will actually have to spend behind the bars. The sources did not give us a lot of faith in the system – because of overcrowding and budgetary issues, non-violent offenders are released from jail in a matter of hours, not days. And so it was with Linnocent this morning. Apparently, she checked into jail last night around 9 pm (and I’m using “checking in” like it’s a hotel for a reason), and she was released very early this morning. So, she had to stay the night. Barely.
Once again, Lindsay Lohan has the last laugh.
The actress was released early from an overcrowded jail Monday morning after serving just over four hours starting at 9 Sunday night, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department confirms.
“All I can tell you is that she was already released,” L.A. Sheriff’s Deputy Tony Moore told PEOPLE early Monday morning.
A sheriff’s spokesman previously explained that Lohan could be sprung early due to a federal mandate to ease the overpopulated jail. Nonviolent offenders are routinely sent home early after serving only a fraction of their sentences.
Lohan, 25, had checked herself into the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif., after she was sentenced to 30 days in jail last week after admitting she violated probation in her DUI and necklace-theft cases.
She must now walk an extremely thin tightrope, working an additional 53 days of janitorial duty at the L.A. morgue and attending 18 more psychotherapy sessions, all by the end of March.
If she slips up, she could face an additional 270-day jail sentence, although she could be released early for overcrowding in that scenario as well.
TMZ says that she got out at 1:30 am, meaning overall, she probably only sat in a jail cell for four hours. THE WORST FOUR HOURS EVER. Ugh. But seriously, I have to ask the question again: how dumb is this crackhead? It’s a much better bet to take whatever harsh jail sentence the judge hands down, rather than the community service and extension of the probation. What’s going to happen? The judge will sentence her to 300 days, of which Linnocent might spend a few full days behind bars, tops. And then she would have been done, and this whole cracked-out mess would be over. The Cracken is dumb as a box of synthetic hair.
